One of the good guys.
God smote the baby kale. See those aphids. They DEVOURED the little babies.
Nancy challenged me to make Kale Chips - 'cuz we all know how HEALTHY those are.
But they taste bhlegh and they're not chippy enough to scoop hummis on to disguise them.
I planted some kale seeds to see if baby kale would be tender, tasty, better.
Someone does not think I need to do that.
Can you count those aphids?
They had a good 24 hours! as happy campers. Until I blasted them with the hose.
On the other hand, this is one of my favorite fuscia's. A semi-hardy variety the aphids do not like.
This is a Cape Fuschia - gartenmeister? It comes back, too.
Guara - wish I knew a common name.
I've had this plant for several years. It dies back in the winter and then blooms it's head off all summer on the patio- delighting the dive-bombing hummingbirds.
Strange OSU creature, pest or friendly?
Another starving aphid moment...
Here's looking at you.
