Lestrange is getting there
Okay - let's just go with that for now because it's the only thing that's keeping me going at the moment.
And since this particular project just isn't that exciting and the only other thing I've made progress on is a pair of vanilla socks.... lets head back to the garden!
After showing you the picture of the Japanese beetle yesterday, I went out and humanely smooshed him under the heel of my shoe. I checked the plants for signs of others, and came up empty - so I hope I got lucky and headed off an infestation.
To be sure, I looked up ways to repel them with every day items - and it turns out that they don't like cat nip - I just happen to have a giant pot of cat nip - so I plunked it down between the two rose bushes.
Of course, like all grand plans, this one has bit of a flaw....
A giant, three-legged flaw to be exact
(Oh - and though I had to smoosh poor Mr. Beetle, I'm going to attempt to immortalize him in yarn.... stay tuned!)
