Bring on the Bugs

A good omen, perhaps?


I spied this little ladybug when I was giving the onions and brassicas a spritz with the ol' water bottle earlier today. The garden so far only amounts to four flats of seedlings under grow lights, but hopefully the beneficial insects will continue flocking to it when stuff is actually growing outside.

I have these little guys walking around on the insides of our bedroom windows lately...where they are coming from, I have no clue - and I'm not growing a thing in there, so I'm not sure what the attraction is.

Out blog hopping and stumbled on your blog.

Your post reminds me I need to start the herbs...

I can't wait for our annual invasion of lady bugs in the house. It is a sure sign for us of warmer days. Three years ago the west side of our house was covered with ladybugs. The only downside is the best way to get them out of the house is with the vacuum...aka bugsucker.

I am very tempted to buy some lady bugs. The prior year I didn't see that many and really saw a difference in the amount of aphids I had in the yard.

Nice! I still need to get my seeds started, tomorrow I guess.
