I have written about my son and us too, drinking fresh lemon grass tea here. I have written about having a vegetable garden here.

I am now proud to say that the plants, mongo or mung bean plants, lemon grass, calamansi plant, Italian oregano and those spring onion plants (that I separated from the bunch I had for the chicken noodles I cooked) in my vegetable garden are alive.

Except for the basil plant which seems ready to face its untimely demise. I don’t know if it had hard feelings so it chose to dry up. Maybe because I removed all the leaves with small white bugs on it or maybe because of the ants bothering the plant, eating the small white bugs on it, it just chose to dry. Oh well, I hope I can get another plant to replace that soon.

I feel bothered that some of the leaves of the mongo plants (which were planted as a part of our homeschooling lesson) are being eaten by something. Whatever it is that bother these leaves will be hunted by me. Hmhp.

Poor mongo plants, something seems to be trampling on them too. When I observed closely, I saw paw prints. Of course, we only have one dog so I know who the culprit it.

I hope now my husband will believe me that we really need to have some sort of fence installation done to protect these plants from harm. Nothing fancy, just something that will prevent the dog from stepping on these poor plants. I know he likes plants because it was this same dog that trampled and destroyed the marigold and hydrangea plants we had last year. Sigh.

Congratulations on your starter garden. I’m sorry to hear that some of the plans got trampled. You really need to have a fence if your have animals that can damage them.

Hay, Tina, now that I have more plants, we really plan to out up something that will keep our dog from going to the plant boxes. He loves to sleep on the ground when the nights are a bit cold.
