Video Tour of Our Family Garden

Welcome to my blog and video tour of my garden. I normally don't upload videos of my garden, but I thought this would be nice.

My biggest challenge
Today was an all out war on bugs. I brought out the big guns and no aphids were spared. My allies in this sweaty, stinky, and dirty chess game were ferocious and hungry chickens, homemade insecticide, cornmeal, and coffee grounds. I hope that our efforts were not in vain.
Looking for worms
Organic FTW!

Mixture of 1/2 coffee grounds and 1/2 cow manure
2 cups water, 1 TBSP vegetable oil,
1 tsp dish liquid. I added onion,
red pepper flakes, and garlic
before straining the solution. 
Eloise is doing the best she can...bless her heart.
This post is short because the video will take some time to watch. There is one thing that I found in my bush bean plant leaves that is worth a look as I have never seen one until today. It is called the squash lady beetle and was not hard to identify when googling "yellow bug."
