the ladies are here!!!

ordered some ladybugs friends to eat the aphids on my two apple trees and one pear tree. i managed to kill most of the aphids last week by spraying them with lukewarm water with a bit of biodegradable dish soap.  but, you have to do that all the time to keep them under control.     

i missed the ladybug delivery before the weekend... i called purolator, i called home depot... they couldn't redeliver for THREE days!  i was sure they would be ALL dead dead dead... but the ladies have arrived, and are all alive, and seem ok... it's pouring rain right now, so i put them in my fridge next to the salami + feta  for a nice sleep.  to be released shortly.   this is exciting.  my next purchase?  an anteater.
