It’s been a little bit since I last blogged. I thought I’d take this opportunity to express my thoughts. At present, they’re happy thoughts! 🙂 Our garden is doing very well right now but I spotted some red beetles that are not ladybugs and some ‘cowboy’ bugs, which are actually called ‘Leaf-legged’ bugs or something like that. I found that out earlier today and it just goes to show how awful my memory is at times. I also found a very helpful site about natural pest control. I’m hoping to implement their ideas soon to see if they really are helpful and if this will deter the cowboy bugs. I don’t want sour veggies! I want normal tasting veggies! Here’s the site: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/29097/prevent_garden_bugs_no_pesticide_pest.html?singlepage=true&cat=32 I hope that works. You may have to copy and paste it to your menu bar. If not, let me know and maybe I can add that link another way. So far, we’ve probably harvested 10 lbs. of squash from our little patch. We have approximately 12-15 squash plants, some of which are zucchini and some of which are yellow crook-neck. The purple hull peas are also coming up and I can’t wait to eat those but I have to get rid of those cowboy bugs! I read that they will eat peas! Can’t have that.
In other life news, we are going to visit the hubby’s family soon. This will be fun! We haven’t been to see them for quite some time. We are all excited. 🙂
Later on this month a very good and dear friend of ours (who we consider to be family) is coming for a visit. We are so looking forward to it! 🙂
There is much to do and school must continue. I just wanted to blog a bit of the goodness that is around me and really put into words how thankful I am for the blessings from my Heavenly Father.
