we move into out house this weekend. so in the mean time our veggies have been in pots out on my inlaws deck. my FIL has been over watering my cilantro and today he sprayed pesticide all over his tomatoes....my tomaotes are right next to his and a little bit on on mine. i know it's not the end of the world, but i am trying to grow organic. not to mention my daughter noticed white stuff on his tomatoes and touched it and then touched her face. i am so pissed.
the weekend can't get here soon enough.

Yuck. But yay on moving in a couple of days! It would be rough living with the IL's. Lilly touching that stuff would make me cringe also.

Do you have a yard where you are moving to or are you keeping a container garden over there?

we have a small yard so we're probably going to transplant them into the ground (except the mint since it can get out of control).

oh and i forgot to include in my rant that we started our compost in a large bucket thing so we can take it with us and we had like 150+ worms in there and raccoons got into it and ate ALL of them. ARGGHH!!!

I responded to the worm thing on your facebook but you don't actually need worms for an outdoor pile. I've been to several composting classes and they actually discouraged them. I can't remember why, maybe its because of animals?

If you want to do vermiculture indoors you need them for that.

Oh, and we made the mistake of planting mint with everything else before. Yikes. Thats all I got to say.

I'm glad I saw this about the mint! A neighbor just gave me some of her clippings and I was going to stick them in my garden... I guess I'll be keeping them in a pot! LOL
Sorry about your troubles. Hopefully you guys can get everything moved in pretty seamlessly without further troubles.
