I got a late start on my lettuce planting this year. And then there was the squirrel that took to frolicking in the planter in the seeds! Some strategically placed garlic clips finally slowed him down, mostly.
Today was monthly fertilization day. I try to fertilize everything once a month with a balanced 5-5-5 organic fertilizer, it’s granular so it’s slow release. I’ve been doing it this way for a few years and it seems to work well.
