Re: Japanese beetles


Well, I know they are considered evil and wicked bugs to gardeners and farmers. But as a child..I thought they were one of the prettiest bugs around. Iridescent green...and shiny...and just overall cool looking. It wasn't until I started gardening that I decided I did not like them. Or cut worms. They are cool looking and make this "click" sound when you disturb them....but, I do not like them on my tomato plants. But, I hate killing them...so I just try to PREVENT them by planting things that repel them...or inviting birds that like to dine on them!!

That's because you were a kind, sensitive, compassionate child and are a
kind, sensitive, compassionate woman. Much like your own offspring may I
say...
