Tragedy

This is a picture of the front yard with the hedge completely chopped. Pretty bare! This is also the last time I saw my plants from the plant sale (in the 2 brown paper bags)... when I came home from work, someone had filtched them!

It's not like they were especially pretty or fancy plants, they were random, obscure natives and such. I hope they found a good home!


Nothing like a mesh bag of hibernating ladybugs in your fridge to make you feel better!


"Ladybugs can eat over 5000 aphids (and other soft body insects) during their lifetime of about a year. Ladybugs are one of the few beneficial insects that can be stored for between one and ten weeks, dormant, in the refrigerator at a temperature between 35 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep them above freezing, and you can let some out occasionally as needed."

They stole your plants from the NARGS? That truly sucks! The thief will never know how good they were.

A tragedy indeed! How heartbreaking that someone took your whole new stash.
