I was out this morning after I came home from my Saturday errands to take a look at the garden. I noticed that the radish patch is both overcrowded and buggy. I don’t exactly know what’s going on there, but I hate to say it squicked me out. I know bugs and gardens go together like peas and carrots (see what I did there? That was a pun. Ha!)
My problem is that I don’t know what to do about my problem. I tried to photograph the offending buggers, but they’re too fast. They look like teeny flies. I also saw a fat caterpillar enjoying elevensies and he was quickly relocated.
So gardeners, what do I have and how do I evict them?
– little flying flies or gnats
– holes in my radish leaves
Here is a better-ish picture of the assault on my radish leaves. It’s a little tricky to see, but there are the little buggies and the holes (which I’m pretty sure are due to the Fat Cat-erpillar and, presumably, his buddies.)
