I am terrified of heights and most things that have more than 2 legs.
And I have a 2 year old girl who is obsessed with all things bugs and lizards. WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE BUGS AND LIZARDS?!
So gross. I’d happily take an obsession of pepto-pink princess stuff over bugs and lizards.
But I will concede that ladybugs are… not as gross? They don’t bite or incessantly buzz around your ears. They might even be a good inhabitant for the garden. I’ll reserve judgement.
Our garden is moving right along this year! We’ve started getting cherry tomatoes by the dozen, a couple of times a week, and a pound of strawberries every week or so. We’ve (knock on wood) managed to mostly keep the squirrels and birds out of the garden this year – a war I failed to even win a single battle in last year – by adding bird and squirrel feeders as well as access to fresh water. So far, they seem to prefer that to my tomatoes and strawberries.
Blueberries are ripening by the dozen a day and our little fig tree is full of figs. We’re getting a pound of green beans a week and the San Marzano tomato plant we added at the last minute is now as tall as I am and probably has 100 tomatoes on it.
100 tomatoes. I can’t wait to have that problem 🙂
The peach crop is going to be disappointing again this year and half of our dwarf citrus trees seem to be in distress… bad with the good, I suppose!
How are your gardens coming along?
