Here's just a small sample:
You remember how it was in the good old days, you'd plant something with great big furry leaves - and you'll be bug free!
Obviously the rules have changed.
Since when did these little fellows decide that my hirsute and beefy Salvia was something to suck on?
These bold buffet bugsters should be easy to find.....I'll just have to follow the sound of their bellies scraping the ground and their thighs rubbing together.
They didn't even have to fold the leaves in half and half again to make these pretty leaves look like doilies.
And I found my first lily beetles (shocking bright orange red beetles) yesterday - they had taken a brief break from eating to answer a booty call. I'm hear to report, that they died happy.
So, that's all for today - It's war. I'm out into the garden with hose on high and gloves on squish. Things will all be a little prettier tomorrow. I promise.
