I have been feeling a bit rough the last week or so ..
Rain is like some kind of steroid injection to the garden and when I do have a chance to have a quick walk about ... well , I feel so overwhelmed with the aphids .. slugs .. not getting vines supported properly .. etc ... etc ....
You know what I mean .. the garden has lept forward and I have fallen backwards feeling ?
I know some bloggers out there are suffering from way too much rain .. like Lynn and Patsi ... then the other extreme is poor Debbie with DRY conditions.
I know I am not alone but ............ JEEZ ! I'm in that tunnel of "how the heck am I going to keep up with this?"
I did one positive experiment this morning .. I made a concoction of Murphy's oil soap , a smidgen of baking soda and a few drops of veggie oil , to attack aphids and those ROTTEN lily beetles .. I think the conditions were just right .. it has rain a lot over the last few days .. plants were still "moist" .. it was a little after 6 this morning .. no wind, so nice to do a walk about .. and spray those little fiends from "bug HELL".
So maybe doing one positive thing can send out a life line to us ? .. make us think "yes we can !!"
Now if only one thing, would satisfy the condition of the house ?
