trees and bugs

I have been seeing more and more insects around. Spring is here! Some bees, so hopefully the strawberries will get going. The aphids are also out in force. Hope the ladybugs can keep them under control. And I saw some of those horrible orange beetles that eat all our vine veggies yesterday. sigh.

Well, now we know why this tree was having some problems. Caught in the act!

My husband gave the avacado tree a drastic trim, but it seems to be fighting back.

My husband saved and planted apple seeds from the better apples we at in the fall, and they are doing quite well. Especially now that he has thinned them. Usually I am left to be the designated "murderer", though thinning isn't my favorite either.
