garden produce & a new friend


The first harvest of our container garden was of the green onions/scallions. The were delicious in a scramble, and also on top of chicken tortilla soup. Very excited about everything growing.

And also very happy to have made a new friend. This lovely ladybug (are male ladybugs offended by their name?) is sitting on our cucumber leaf, but has been seen for a few weeks now, travelling between the tomato plants, cucumber plant, and even the marigolds. I like the fact that I am able to provide it with good nourishment - a rich diet of white flies and aphids.
