I’ve had my first positive insect experience this summer.
Anyone in Sydney can tell you, it’s been a very wet summer, which has had it’s downfall for the veggies – most of our zucchini got mildew.
I attempted to fix this by making a milk spray, but it obviously wasn’t strong enough as it didn’t work.
However instead it attracted a whole heap of mildew eating ladybeetles!
We also had a lot of other insects. The snails went nuts with our cabbages, and in an even more strange twist they were also all over the tansy! I thought tansy was supposed to ward off insects!!!
The veggie beds have been going strong, lots of zucchinis and tomatoes.
