death to earwigs

Well, there are 13 dead earwigs in a little jar of cooking oil out in the veggie patch. I will spare you the photos. I popped this jar underneath a patch of Italian parsley the little *$%&###%ers were starting to decimate.

and now there is a body count of 13.

Still no dead earwigs in the jar in the glass house. This could mean diesel. I is WARNING youse!

What else? Today is the second day in a row I have been working at my little desk looking out onto the back yard. No travel this end of the week. It is just bliss. And apart from a couple of blogging lapses, did manage to get heaps done. I have done half a research strategy, and some business plan. Yay! Yesterday I made muffins and worked on the business plan. Did I mention how much I love my new job?

hee hee hee.

great job you've got there, duckie. We should start a club of workers who sit at their desks looking over the vegie patch/chook run. You can be president. ; )

The mothers to be are looking good. Do you know, I've never seen an earwig. I wonder if I will now that I've said it. (that's the irish in me coming out.)

yay! el presidento - i like it Rhonda Jean! you can be president too!

I don't want to talk about earwigs, although I know I will, because they are on my mind - a LOT

May you never see one ever - and especially not in your garden. ever ever. Wouldnt wish it on my worst enemy! (well, perhaps, if I had one, I would wish that all these earwigs would go and live at their house. )

have a lovley day in your little house in your little garden with your little chooks! I can see Maurice, Nefley and the four little ones camping under the Kangaroo Apple- under a curtain of purple flowers while I write. bliss...
