I liked it because of your comment! But I get it... why are some people so mean?!? 🥺 We don't have sidewalks, so kids will come up the curb, to my 2 gardens that are closest to the road & occasionally grab & run! 🙁

@KariSamuel There’s lots of ways to stop these things, but at the risk of being called mean, I’ll simply say that kids who aren’t taught, won’t learn, and their kids won’t learn either. Had to teach some adult children next door earlier this month. It takes a village, wether the village signed up for it or not. As fellow humans I think we are all obligated to teach humanity what is right and not. Resting easy without worry of one’s property is priceless. 🐶

comment
cyndi

Thank you Katy @gjones... i have a few that would do better and not need protection if i lived in middle Florida .. but i just cover most of them if its needed and some go under a make shift shelter i put tarp on just to be safe. Some are a tad sensitive like the angel trumpets for example and my gold vein.. i just mainly use sheets if its supposed to be below freezing temperatures

Im so not a happy camper and I let them know leash the dog or get a line cus Im livid. I got a resounding f**k you b*t*h. I complained to landlord yet again. Nothing..

You are a good person to ask them if you don't mind then. Cyndi can I plant milkweed for butterflies without it getting out of control? I really try to plant more and more for them. @cyndi

1w
comment
cyndi

Yes you can @hammerhead you can also plant them in large containers just make sure you catch the seed heads right as they split or put a tied with string cut pantyhose over them so can save seeds to make more or share swap trade and they dont escape you. Best garden wishes

I have a few young mantis this year way more than Ive seen in past years Kim @kimguy so Im hoping with all the natural organic as possible gardening and the many plant types many good bugs will feel welcomed at my home. Ive even bought on clearance a #bugmotel #bughotel for them and will be making other types as well. Plus the water features help as well. We need to see a comeback of #goodbugs #plantitandtheywillcome #fingerscrossed @lesliecole49 and yes we are doing our parts xoxo #gous

When drying constantly/randomly turn stir shake them to dry evenly and to prevent mold mildew and check for small bugs as well they love to hide in the crevices..you can dust them with de and shake so if any bugs have hidden in it they will die and keep seeds safer. #tip
