I've been out playing in the dirt a lot lately, and with dirt comes bugs.
Flying bugs, hopping bugs, creepy crawly bugs. I don't know a whole
lot about them, I don't know exactly which ones are bad and which
ones are good.
Of course I know that aphids suck the life out of my roses,
and leaf-rollers do a whole lot of damage to.... duh...leaves.
What do centipedes do? I saw lots of them when I was planting seeds
this week. Are those bugs I saw in the organinc garden area going
to become worms in my radishes and carrots?
Ah well....what will be will be.
I really just grow for fun anyway, not so concerned about yield.
I've never sprayed
my fruit trees, one of my instructors back in my
horticulture study days was a total jerk to me when I said I didn't
spray my trees. He taught a class about fruit and nut trees. The
guy was a nut, and I thought he was a little spray-crazy. I heard
through the grapevine that he was ill, I wonder if it was all
that crazy spraying he was doing. Makes ya wonder doesn't it?
Around here we just kinda let the bugs....be bugs.
