I planted them into the garden three weeks ago and they are doing well.
I'm told that the commercial orchards have the same problems but use sprays to deter or kill the earwigs. Have you ever seen the orchardists on their tractors spraying? It seems weird to me that they are covered from head to toe in protective gear plus serious face mask protection. Yet, this is fruit that will soon be picked and in the shops for sale.
I found another lovely letter in the Farm Gate Shop from Cheryl this week. How lovely it is to read your notes, they really gladden my heart to hear such kind words and good sense. You are so right about there being too much negativity and greed in our world these days but with simple acts of kindness and generosity we can create a space of peacefulness around us, our friends and family which must surely seep out into the community.
Your recipe is calling to be made as soon as possible. Thank you so much for sharing it with me and as soon as I have made it I will let you know the results.
Kindness abounds from far and wide, with generosity of spirit in spades from strangers, but who I feel I know, through the blogosphere. (Spell correct doesn't like that word!) I've been having issues with my settings that are not allowing some readers to leave a comment, beginner's trials and errors on my part. Apologies for that and hopefully we have that sorted out now.
Thank you for your precious help Emma from A Simple Living Journey
I have added Emma's blog to my side bar as her words are so beautifully written from the heart. It's the younger generation like Emma and her family who give me faith in our future here on this planet.
She will have you in tears one day and laughing out loud the next.
Thank you for visiting today and I hope your weekend is productive and relaxing in the right measure.
