Aaaaaaaphids!!! …

I can’t tell you how much I hate bugs. Aphids are little, but let me tell you, there were hundreds, no thousands, all over my kale this morning…

It has been really warm the past few days…warm enough for these guys to multiply rapidly. I made up some dish soap, oil and water solution and pulled out all the infected plants, dug up any bugs I could see on the soil and sprayed…sprayed…sprayed…

I took all the aphids and grubs I dug up out of the greenhouse and wheel-barrowed them down to the coop… The chickens ran up to me all excited like they always are when they think I’m bringing a treat…
