    You'll have some nice fresh tomato soon with Mozz and basil!!!!! Love the marigolds. Did you know they are a natural repellents for gnats and mosquitos?

    1. I call them ladybugs, and I love them too! I found that beauty on a leaf of my fig tree. I love how the sky and my phone are reflected in her shiny exterior.

      I have over 5 dozen green tomatoes of 6 different varieties, not counting the cherries, currently growing and ripening. I've never had such good luck with tomatoes, and I'm thrilled that the soil here seems to be very good! Did you notice the basil plant in one of the photos? Tomatoes with basil and mozz will be WONDERFUL!

      I've heard marigolds repel all sorts of insects and pests so that's why I planted a living mulch of them. The red French marigolds I started from seed, and they're just now starting to bloom. :)

  5. Your veggies look amazing, and, in case you didn't know, Ladybugs are carnivores.

    1. I did know! I wanted to move that one over to my veggies (it was on the fig tree) but I hated to disturb it. :)

    1. I'm frankly shocked at how lush and healthy everything seems to be so far. This is my first year planting anything at the "new" house. The soil must be pretty decent!

  13. Everything looks happy under your care, still cool here so my tom’s are just beginning to show. Every year our neighbor “the crazy cat lady” rushes out to the nursery and spends a small fortune on those big bags of live ladybugs. She then invites her lady friends over for the big ceremonial release, and of course they take wing and disappear. CCL then spends the summer complaining because there are no ladybugs in her garden. Should I tell her they are all in my rose garden happily munching on all the big fat aphids?
