Mother Nature’s Pest Controller

Organic gardening can be a test of patience and sometimes, admittedly, painful but the results will bring on smiles.

Mama Ladybug (Ladybird) has been hovering around my eggplant and even took shelter in the folds of the bloom during the cold front last week.

… and I had to almost bite my fingers to stop myself from squashing those wingless aphids that I saw, slowly, multiplying.  This morning I discovered that my pest control squad has arrived!!
