Presby Memorial Iris Garden #5

While these iris thrive, my own garden has been struggling all season with various pest invasions.  Over Memorial Day Weekend, bright green worms ate ALL of my lettuce, right down to the ground.  Another worm has been attacking my beet greens.  Something ate the rest of the ripening strawberries.  Aphids have shown up on the flowers, broccoli, and even on the top of one carrot.  Fortunately nothing has touched the tomatoes, cucumbers, or pepper.  I also have some peas that have decided to grow.  We'll see what happens but this may turn out to be a flower year.
