Is it really July already!? It's been a while since my last gardening post, so... here goes!
- The garden was overtaken by weeds at one point, so we spent about 3 hours weeding -- THEN we laid down a layer of newspaper and covered that with a thick layer of grass clippings. Ever since then, the weeds have been very manageable.
- Our neighbors gave us some leftover mushroom compost so we spread that in around the plants as well. They seem to be loving it.
- We are having some bug problems! I'd love any suggestions any of you have for organic pest control!
- We have been getting a TON of rain, so I have only had to water the garden about two times in the last month.
I have lots of pictures to share and things are growing like crazy! Check out the slideshow below to see updates on the various plants and veggies :)

Calling all fellow gardeners -- rookies AND experienced green thumbs: If you have any tips and tricks or tried and true methods, I'd love to hear them :)
