Container gardening.

Aphids are eating my pansies. The kid recommended lady bugs, but mama went for the Ortho (insecticide) quick fix.

We can order ladybugs later, for the next infestation.

While picking up the poison, I saw a long, molded foam box that would go nicely in front of the AC unit. I almost quibbled on the $40 price, but had decided to get one. Unfortunately, both were cracked, so even if I find a whole one I am not buying.

Perhaps I'll find something at the Exchange this weekend when I go for class. We're still considering sacrificing a section of grass (not that the grass is anything to brag about) to build a planter box for vegetables and herbs. I just haven't decided how big.

Oh...and I've decided to mix plantings of creeping rosemary into the rock pile blocking the hole under the fence. I just can't resist planting more rosemary.
