My garden is too wet to cultivate, plant, or repair any damage from the cows' party, but I could look and I found aphids (you should be able to see them on the picture) on what is left of my sugar snap peas. Yuk!!!! I also found a Lady Bug doing its job - eating the aphids. I garden organically and love to see a balanced eco-structure working in my garden.
Non-organic gardeners usually run for the Sevin Dust at the first sight of an insect. This is a huge mistake since Sevin Dust kills good and bad. Most of the good bugs take longer to reproduce, thereby giving the bad bugs a head start the next go round. By not killing the good bugs, I now have a helper in my fight against the aphids. I may have to hose these plants with soapy water because there seem to be so many on a couple of plants, but at least I do know that nature is working to help me.
