Bad Aphids!

The Aphids tried to invade my garden already.

Aphids tried to get a beach head on my Kale seed pods.

I'm letting this one go all the way to seed since I liked it so much -
more of the same please

I barely have anything growing yet, but that was no reason for them not to stake a claim I guess.
The advantage of a tiny garden is you can go hand remove the pests quick.

I've been doing that with slugs too.

This works fine on a small plot, or if you have many hands available, but I don't begrudge people growing much more with less help other means to remove these pests.  After all this is a particularly amazing year for slugs.  I think they got in 2 breeding seasons this year or something!
