Sometimes new friends come in your CSA!
Don’t be startled, they come with the territory. And if you let them, they’ll tickle your thumb.
Above is Albert. As we have a window garden there’s a convenient place for Albert to live when he accidentally arrives in our tote bag. Albert’s made several friends since: Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein, Buttersworth, and Swarthy. They all live happily in the soil and throw bug parties and watch passers-by.
I suggest you burrow through your goodies from your share and make sure you don’t have any new pals nibbling on your vegetables. We had the alarming experience of almost cooking Buttersworth on Tuesday, and have since been more thorough in our searches.
Anyone have a suggestion on where to put farm friends when you don’t have a window garden? (Flushing not an option.)
