Sunny today, so working in the garden. Pots are running short, so as soon as anything gets slightly bigger than weedy seedling I bung it in the ground and cross my fingers, today the tomatoes got a chance to progress on, well, 29 of them did, the other variety will have to wait a while 😀
While we were happily getting all composty, we spotted a strange – rather large – creature we had never seen before. Off to trusty Facebook to upload the photo and within minutes lovely friends had informed me it was a cockchafer, also known as a Maybug. The Boy has been enthralled with it, but very sad that they apparently live for only one day.
We then noticed a little group of eggs on one of our plants (cabbage/sprout or cauli – I’d obviously run out of sticks to tag them). We will sacrifice this plant, and keep it somewhere safe so that we can watch the caterpillars emerge, did I mention the extreme bug love that goes on at our house..?!
After mainly doing pyrography for the last couple of weeks, it appears my sewing mojo is returning.
Edit: After reading a bit more, it seems that it’s Mayflies that only live a day, and the beastie we found can live a month or more. The Boy is going to think it’s a miracle if it’s still going strong tomorrow! Yay!
