March Week One Update

March Week One Update

Hi Lovelies,

Brace yourselves! This post has a lot of pictures. Just a quick peek at  nearly everything that’s going on right now! Let’s all just hope that this warmer weather will keep on coming our way! Not pictured is the progress on the dahlia tubers that I’ve started for cuttings. The reason? Well, it looks like a GIANT FAILURE. More on that soon! Much love!

I promised to show you guys the bad things, too. Some of the flowers have these gross bugs all over them. I’ve never had problems with bugs in the hoop house. If you know what these are, please leave it in the comments (and also how do I get rid of them?!?!). I’m hoping that those big bugs are just chilling in there while they eat those little green bugs. GROSS.
