Things have been HOT! I keep waiting for all the storms to hit with their promised rains but all of it is missing my place. I've started watering despite the promise of rain because so far none is getting us. Well today was my last day at work (I'm transferring to a different school next year) and my work colleagues know how much I love gardening so they got me some beautiful gifts.
In return, I made use of my honey for gifts for everyone. I think they looked rather nice :)
First eggplant on my listada de gandia bush. Many to follow :) Love this variety I'm having a massive problem with aphids and whitefly at the moment. I nearly reached for the eco oil but I've been listening to a lot of organic gardening advice lately and as much as it pains my, I'm trying to see if I can encourage more of the good bugs in - I mean, that was the whole idea behind increasing the number of flowers around the place and I've seen a lot of dragon flies and lady bugs around lately. So no sprays. I did blast with the hose and will continue to do so every couple of days but looks like lady bugs and their larvae (circled in red - blurry) are doing their thang! Just hope their population increases enough to get those aphids under control. Any advice as to what to do about whitefly?
