How Does Your Garden Glow



Organic beetle control is so pretty at night! No beetle munching & nice lights make this Girl happy.

Things I love: justice in all forms; flowers; locally grown food; cloth-diapering; breastfeeding; feminist theory; outdoor play; beaches; wine; Divine interventions; 4-H and coffee. Things I loathe: racism; homophobia; toxic crap; misogyny; litterbugs; the zombie apocalypse and pitbull-haters. My formal education is in sociology, gender studies, and public policy. I'm also a Lactation Educator; 4-H Youth Development coordinator a Certified Master Gardener and a graduate of a Permaculture Design Course. I've been blogging for several years on dozens of topics- everything from women's health to breed-specific legislation. But the thing I like to write about most is my gardening, food adventures and my kids. So there you have it. Please be kind. Thanks.

  1. What did you do? Solar string lights? And is it helping? The Japanese beetles here are vicious.

    • They are solar lights, and it is helping. I had to cluster some closer than I originally thought to get it bright enough to deter them. There is still some feasting going on, but it’s more like a small gathering instead of the whole extended Beetle Family. 🙂

  2. So glad to hear it worked! I told everyone I know about this. 🙂
