Cathy, your granddaughter can come over and feed them to my chickens anyday.  They love bugs, any kind of bugs.

How about the kudzu vine that was originally imported from Aisa and took over millions of acres.  I personally would not bring anything into the United States that was not native.  Or how about the fire ants that came in from South Africa.  When they get into my compose, I separate them from their eggs.  I am sure they work harder but I work even harder to get rid of them with soap and hot water.

Charlie, I have some raised gardens for my flowers where I can sit and manage everything within reach.  I am sure you will be feeling a lot stronger soon.  yesterday was a great day to get out and walk.  Today, however, is a rainny day for searching for that special seed.

Yesterday, I visited the local garden center and they had new stock of Yukon Gold seed potatoes, Martha Washington Asparagus, onion sets, strawberry plants and so much more. Do you know the feeling of standing in front of a display thinking where in your garden you could add something? Does anyone do that impulse plant buying? I did yesterday with the Martha Washington. I don't think I need more asparagus plants, I already have 6, but Martha Washington...

May I respectfully suggest that we close the insect discussion for now, agree to disagree.

Yes Cathy, your information on the Asian beetle was correct, but you called them Japanese beetles to begin with.  They are 2 totally different insects.  Japanese beetles have nothing to do with aphid control since they do not eat aphids, yet they have everything to do with destroying plants.  That was the information you gave to begin with.  I am sure it was an honest error and we are all human and make mistakes.  I was not attacking you in any way by pointing out that a Cicada and a locust are also 2 different things, but you seemed to take it personally and posted an attack on me.  I am still attempting to not be insulting to you, as you were to me, but if you insist, I will start tossing out the insults as well.

Cathy, I apologize for correcting any misinformation you may be sharing.  I sort of do that in groups like this when I see incorrect information being given out so that others don't use that incorrect information and they have the correct information.  I also expect people to correct me if I give out some information that is incorrect.  I know that people sometimes refer to Cicadas as locusts, but they are not locusts.  I remember people doing just that when I was a kid too.  I grew up and learned the difference and stopped calling them locusts because they are not locusts.  I also called spaghetti pasketti when I was a kid, but I stopped doing that as well.

Perfect Datura Bloom

"Interestingly, we've grown daturas for MANY years and have never seen tomato hornworms on them (although we have frequently had them on our tomatoes). Knock on wood -- we didn't see any of those vile things this summer!"
