So I set out the beginning of last week to do a week in the life of a garden. Mid week we nearly lost our entire crop of tomatoes to some caterpillars and had to treat them or lose them all. I know, say what you will about what we did, it was that or have no garden left in a few days. Here was the progress we had up to that point. The bowl in each picture is the same.

3 large zucchini, 1 cucumber, 1 egg, 3 jalapenos, 2 grape tomatoes

Small day today 1 cucumber 2 grape tomatoes.

The caterpillars started taking down whole stalks from my tomatoes so those green ones I brought in hoping they might still turn red. 2 zucchini, 1 cucumber, 5 jalapeno, 2 green tomatoes, 1 egg

~6 zucchini, 2 cucumbers, 1 squash, 5 semi ripe tomatoes, 1 egg, 5 jalapenos. More green tomatoes thanks to caterpillars and now chickens! My chickens ate up about 6 tomatoes today. There are no more pictures for a few days because we have to let the caterpillar killer do it’s job. But for four days that’s still a lot of produce.
