While away last week we visited my husbands aunt who had recently moved into a new house. Her partner has been busy tending to the garden and creating his vegetable patch.
We were chatting in the garden...I was checking out the veggies...as i've always liked the idea of an allotment... when Aunt H referred to all the bugs eating their vegetables plants. The conversation between her and my husband went something like this.
......"We are having terrible trouble with the bugs eating the plants "
" I've read, if you put marigolds between the plants it keep the insects away"...he said
" Oh really, i'll have to try that......what do you do with them.... I suppose you put them on the end of the sticks?"
It took a split second for us all to register....before we feel about laughing.
A couple of days ago Aunt H sent through this photo.
the text read
" Hey C, it seems to be working....especially the one in the middle, thanks for the gardeners tip xx"
Funny lady......one mad moment......captured.
