We returned from our 10 day excursion to find the garden in beautiful order. Our friend Lauren did a great job keeping the crops watered and harvested, and mother nature pitched in a little rain to assist.
We also had the helpful assistance of a surprise garden sitter! When a herd of aphids found their way onto the newly developed corn tassles, ladybugs moved in to help take care of the problem.
Thanks ladybugs. I'm glad they're not shy about procreating in public - their babies eat even more than the adults!
