Horse bandaging supplies

Predatory Bugs: Natural Enemies Of Common Pests, a guest post

This year I grew cabbage and several kinds of squash for the first time. Until this year, I'd never had to fight cabbage worms or squash bugs; I wasn't even sure I knew what they looked like.

Sure enough, the cabbage worms showed up. So far I haven't seen a squash bug, although it turns out I have occasionally seen one in past years, I just didn't know what it was. I'm interested to know how to fight these pests organically, so I hope Angela's guest post today will interest you too.

Silver Sunday and Being Thankful

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- our wedding anniversary
- fragrant roses
- yellow squash on the vines
- children and loose teeth
- recovery from an eye procedure
Silver Sunday

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, 
whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is
excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.
Philippians 4:8 NIV
