Happy Friday to you!
I finally got around to spraying my seedlings with neem oil yesterday and the whiteflies definitely seem to be retreating a bit. I’m extremely happy about that, and hoping to get a lot of the seedlings in the ground in the coming weekend. I’ve been hardening them up for the last few days, and it’s been warm enough to even leave them outside. So far none of the plants seem to have been affected, so I’m pretty thrilled about that.
We also bought some pretty flowers to go in our flower beds and window boxes on the front of the house, which means it’s getting to be that time of year when our rain barrels and watering cans will be put to good use. As wet as our winters are, the summers here tend to be the absolute opposite. Thankfully, Mackenzie is a huge fan of watering stuff. So at least I’ll have a good support team there. As long as I can keep her from over-watering things, all will go well. 🙂
I am a bit curious about what exactly this funky fungi is, though. Anyone ever seen anything quite like it? It popped up about two weeks ago in one of the seedling beds. I’m figuring the spores were in the soil we bought and they’re enjoying being watered with the seedlings. But I also don’t really want to transplant it into my garden beds either. I gave it a good spraying with the neem oil, and we’ll see what happens.
