Gardening and a Killing Spree

So I finally got around to transplaning my seedlings. I have been waiting on someone {cough,cough} to hammer some holes into the bottom of large aluminum cans for me.

Well - that was done this morning so I went to town! I filled up the bottom with seashells we collected two weeks ago to aid in the drainage.

I think I really did this in the nick of time - my chamomile roots were crazy.

My lovely green beans - their still doing the damn thing!

As I was heading in I noticed this unnecessary spider web FULL of baby spiders on my table/chair...

Seriously that's only about 1/2 of what was out I ran inside to grab a sandal to try and destroy as many as possible (and I really hate killing bugs - I just made bf nicely escort two beatles out of my kitchen last night instead of killing them). Ironically - when I grabbed my shoe from the entry way there was a giant spider on it lol.

So I thought I killed most of them and went back inside. Well - I came out about 15 minutes later and they had rebuilt their little bridge of doom and were all over the place again. I decided not to play nice this time and grabbed some spray bleach. I really do feel a bit bad for drowning them in a nazi chemical bath :(

In happier news - I took Salem out on the patio again tonight and saw my Snap Dragon is blooming! I love that it's half dead but still flowering :)

Oh no!

Spiders eat mosquitos and other pests like aphids and spider mites off of your flowers! Don't kill them...they are your garden helpers!!

They also feed the birds and bats which are also garden helpers. It's a huge ecosystem, really.

And if you must kill them, you can always smash vs spraying with bleach!

Enjoy your gardening

I saw this picture of the cat. I had one that looked like that for 16 years. I lost him Nov 17th. Just made me want to cry! Thanks for sharing with someone you don't know! Take care of it!
