We don't use much on our vegetables besides compost, a hoe and our hands. So in early spring when we start to see aphids panic can set in.

Praying mantis lay their eggs on our blueberry bushes and on some briars. Maybe they are raspberries. Maybe not.

We clipped a few eggs and moved them inside the hoophouse. Right next to the peas.

No aphids yet. Or peas. Or praying mantis. But the briar is sprouting green shoots and setting down roots.

No wonder our fields were covered in these things when we first moved here. That's a fertile plant!
