Here’s a view of the day’s events.
Aphids are taking over the pumpkin patch. I started blasting them with water Saturday morning. By afternoon, the ladybugs were starting to assemble.
Today, their babies were munching on those pesky aphids.
They are the dinkiest ladybugs I’ve ever seen. I appreciate their efforts. They’re not the only “good” bugs dining on the aphids.
These blue guys were hovering and diving into the herd of aphids.
They’re turquoise blue. They look like someone has strung some beads together. They seem to like aphids. I don’t know anything more about them. They are my friends.
Goodbye, friends. Keep up the good work!
The yard cat known as the “Devil” cat was trying to tell me that she was not a devil cat because she did not like this weather from hell. I dragged my sweaty self up to the patio with my bell peppers to investigate just how hot it was.
Inside was watermelon jelly I made. The watermelon came from the garden. It tasted fine while it was cooking. If it doesn’t set up, I’ll use it on ice cream.
Hope you are keeping cool wherever you are.
