Which brings me to good news note number two: After a bout of caterpillar-induced decimation to my radishes, they're bouncing back, and they should be ready to pick soon! I'd found online, thanks to my new addiction, Pinterest, a homemade recipe for pest control and made up a batch-and after a few days, it did the trick! The ravaged leaves are coming back healthy and my green onions seem to be thriving (while not bothered by pests I didn't want them spreading to my herbs) and are growing rather well. My lettuce, not altered by the pest invasion, is a couple of inches tall and blooming rather well. I'm so excited to be able to use it when it's ready to pick! My roses, on the other hand-not doing so well. Going to keep off the pest spray for them for a while and re-up the fertilizer for a while and see how they do. See pictures below:
Look closely-they're little green onions, I swear!
My poor roses...
Another green onion-planted later than the first batch and doing somehow better...hmmm. Still excited!
