So as some... ok... probably none of you know, James and I have started a garden. In an effort to have a nice and shareable yield, we have researched a ton of techniques, spent hours looking at materials and hunted down several strains of heirloom tomatoes and a few other plants (mostly peppers and spices). After a few of my pepper plants seemed to just crumble into death I got upset and began to question my green thumb.

Then several of our tomato plants started inexplicably wilting. I began to doubt soil composition, light exposure... and then tnday after a hunch I started exploring the wilting plants more closely. And low and behold... Aphids. Shitloads of them. After feeling the gardeners equivalent STD panic, I remembered that ladybugs are natural predators to the little green bastards sucking the life from my future salad trimmings... After a friend agreed, I made some calls and now... waiting to the dark of night (they fly away if dispersed in daylight)... Me and my 1500 new friends will engage the enemy.

I never thought I'd own or be proud of an army of ladybugs... but there you have it.
