Life in the Garden Part 20: Friendly visitor comes back

About a month ago, I found a visitor in my plants. I told her she was welcome to visit my outdoor plants. And today, she came back to check out my Flat Leaf Parsley.

She'll always be welcome out there.

Lady Bugs = Good
Aphids = Bad

Try grasshoppers. We are infested. The chickens can't keep up. The norther part of the state is having its worst plague in I don't know how many years.

We just ordered some bugs to eat the bugs. It's a vicious circle.

@Pricilla: When I lived in a trailer in Helena we were always surrounded by grass hoppers. We'd stray slightly from the path and they would all jump up. It was crazy.

Lady Bugs are amazing for plants! They eat the bad bugs and protect the fruit! They use them in the vineyards to ward off the pests. Lolonis winery is famous for the use of them. Cheers!
