Memorial Day weekend

It's only been 5 days and my plants have really taken to the raised bed. Between the heat and rain, everything has really taken off.

My cucumber plants are so tall and so are the zinnias. I noticed some holes in the leaves today so I made a garlic mixture to spray the leaves. I also placed cardboard (toilet paper rolls) around the base of my squash which is suppose to prevent some kinda of worm.

The tomatoes look like they are a couple inches taller than last weekend when I first put them in. I'm thinking about buying a couple of longer stakes for some more support.

We're going away for a couple of days, so I watered everything thoroughly. I look forward to seeing how tall things are after we get back.

What kind of garlic mixture do you use to get rid of bugs?
