Ack, Aphids!

Mmm, tasty.

Dear Aphid Colony,

I don't know where you came from or who informed you that you were welcome to snack on my broccoli, but I don't like you. That's right, we're not friends. It's MY broccoli. And I am the only one who can authorize snacking on my plants. And quite frankly, the broccoli (and the kale too) are for me, and me alone! I would like to ask all of you and any other slimy family members who are on their way to pack up your bags and head on to some other poor sap's garden. You are not welcome here!


Roberta, (and Otto and Daisy - though I'm not sharing broccoli with them either)

Aphids really are the scourge of the garden world! Black ones, green ones, argh! I’ve never seen them on broccoli before, but then again this is the first year I’ve seen them on my eggplants. Squish them with your fingers or give them a good shot of water. Aphids really do test my commitment to gardening organically. Little bastards…
