Sunny Day

Today is such a beautiful day! Right now it's not too hot yet (83*) with the sun shining brightly. I'm going to go outside with the boys to run off some energy before Jakey's naptime (completely given up on even trying to get Jason to nap anymore). My garden is looking good, a few flowers are actually on my tomato vines! And the potato plants are growing like crazy, I didn't realize how quickly potato plants grow. I need to figure out some type of stake or trellis for my tomato plants before they start growing fruit because the cages we have won't be big enough since they are 3ft and tomato vines usually grow at least 5-6ft. I think the cages would be ok for my peppers since they don't grow as tall, but I'd really just like to build a big trellis across the whole area for my tomatoes, peas, and peppers. I just need some electrical conduit and nylon mesh netting stuff. Oh, and I need to buy some ladybugs, cuz I'm getting aphids all over my beautiful rose bushes. Anyway, off to spend time outside :)

I've never grown roses before but I've heard of something called rose dust that you just dust on the roses and it will keep the bugs away from it.

Hm, never heard of it. I'll have to check that out :)
