Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I have some crappy looking broccoli in my garden which is just laden with white fly...as in millions! I've tried loads of things to get rid of them but nothing seems to work. So I decided to try an experiment and just leave them be and hope that the pests would be attracted to the broccoli and leave the other plants alone....to a degree it seems to have worked.
Well,yesterday I was looking at said broccoli plants which were getting crappier and crappier as each day went by and I decided that it was time to dig them up. As I was busy I asked my husband to do it for me....big mistake : ( He doesn't eat anything vegetable (I know but it's just too hard) and I thought I'd given him good directions about where the plants were...in fact he even commented about the whitefly.
Later in the day I noticed that the broccoli was still there and I thought my request had fallen on deaf ears so I made a mental note to myself to do that job later. I also went out to pick some parsley from some very healthy looking plants which I have been nurturing during the summer months....guess what? No parsley: ( I could have wept.....what could I say? Where was it? Not even on my compost but in the dustbin (garbage bin). Think I'll do my own gardening in future and leave him to fiddle around with his solar lights....I don't want to eat them.
