Wednesday in the garden

In the last week the tomato and green bean plants have really grown. The squirrels have taken interest in the tomatoes in the garden. I'm trying to keep them out with coffee grounds. I got the coffee grounds from Starbuck's. The okra is on the next to last row and is just coming up. We should have fresh green beans by mid June and okra by the 4th of July. If you click on the picture, it will enlarge and you may be able to see the green bean runners going up the cords on the frame and the coffee grounds on the ground. My husband and I built the frame. It's screwed together so we can take it apart for storage. I've put out another bag of mulch and watered the plants with 12 gallons of fertilizer. The mosquitoes are bad but, I haven't seen a squirrel in the backyard today.
