Our harvest today - Flores by the Forest Homesteading

Today was another day of collecting vegetables around our garden. We were able to collect more squash, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers

We have also started to collect about 8 to 10 eggs a day now, with some of these that look like copper maran eggs being a mystery. They are too small for our Copper Marran's, and so they may be one of our bantams - but which one?

Our plants have also been infested with beetles that we have to keep flicking into a cup of water.

As well as grasshoppers.

Can you see him?

They are actually pests and are eating our plants. We want to put up a blue jay house for next year for organic pest control.

Anyone else have natural ways they have used to get rid of plant eating insects around your home?

Overall though, it was a good day and we look forward to what tomorrow has to bring for us.
