Morning Aphid Update
First thing this morning I grabbed a breakfast banana and headed out to the garden. I distributed the peel throughout the aphid bed, even draping them on the lower rungs of the tomato supports. In my usual hunt for flea beetles I came across a few aphids but not an alarming number. It looks like sticking them with tape and repelling them with peels does make headway. Then I went down to Mike and Shelly's end and make sure I haven't merely driven them down there. They could have be having breakfast with the stink bugs!
