Heirloom Tomato and Ladybug May 11, 2009
Ladybugs are a great natural defense against aphids in the garden. I released a bunch of ladybugs in the back garden a month or two ago, but don’t see many anymore. I was happy to see this ladybug perched near a Costoluto Genevese heirloom tomato growing in one of the raised gardens on the side of the house. These tomatoes grow to be pretty big, so this one has a ways to go. They are cute little things.
