Being our weather has been unpredictable here and they say that we are not safe from the threat of frost until May 15th, I haven't really planted much yet. I do have my perennials that bloomed and otherwise I have been weeding and getting it ready so I have less weeding to do when the time comes to plant. I will probably start to plant in the beginning of May, I don't think I have ever actually waited until May 15th here.
Weeding! It's been the hottest day so far this year and the weeds are springing up everywhere - especially dandelions. I also planted out some tomato plants, but keeping them under plastic bottles for a while as there's still a chance of frost here.
Soapy waterI just have a balcony's worth of plants, not a big garden, so I just trimmed the insect-eaten leaves from my basil plant and wondered again what to spray on it to keep pests from eating it. I saw plant insecticides at Walmart but they would make the basil toxic for eating.
