I tried to be nice and just spray them off with a hose. No more.
This morning, I headed out to the garden and found out the few roley poleys eating strawberries last week have now multiplied! Apparantly, they called all their buddies and invited them over to eat strawberries for breakfast. The party is over.
I sprayed all the plants with dish soap and they all scattered. We'll see how long that deters them. My next weapon is vinegar.
I also found this in the garden this morning...
What do you think? A bird? More bugs?
Well, whoever it is, I hope they like Dawn flavored tomatoes.
Here are the other tomatoes - just starting to turn red...
These are beautiful!
A couple of more days and these will be ready to pick!
And here are the strawberries the roley poleys haven't gotten to yet.
If I can keep the pests at bay for a couple of days, I think the strawberries will finish ripening and we can pick them. We'll see how well the dish soap spraying went when I check on the garden tomorrow morning.
