Laura_in_FL: Uh-oh. Unless they are beneficials, you can keep them! :P Speaking of that, I saw a weird insect on my car when I was out running errands yesterday. No clue what it was, so I made it a point to NOT bring it home. Aug 14, 2014 11:22:26 GMT -5
elliemater: This year I have seen at least 4 insect varieties that are completely new to me. This is not good. Like the brown marmorated stinkbug and the leaf-footed bug were 7- years ago...these new insects may be imports from afar that we have no way of controlling. Aug 13, 2014 23:12:44 GMT -5 *
Laura_in_FL: In the "learn something new every day" category - today I learned that the leaves of all Capsicum species are edible. Though most Capsicum leaves tend to be bitter, some types are actually used as greens in Asia. Aug 13, 2014 12:34:49 GMT -5
