I have cilantro growing strictly for the ladybugs. It's a great host plant for baby-making and baby-raising. The suburbs of the garden, if you will. (And you will.) Side note: I hate cilantro. Yes, I know about the genetics, blah blah soap, it's gross but someone I'm sure loves it, blah. Also, MILD INSECT PR0N IN THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER. (hahaha)

I failed to mention that the upper left critter is the ladybug baby (larva).



Now I'm making Transformer noises. (IDK, ladybug larva look like Autobots to me.) Nope, I'm singing Ladybugs Picnic. :D

*sits around telling knock-knock jokes*

Thanks to those who participated in the poll yesterday, including those that said they were NOT interested in my show. (And I can't help it, I have to laugh at the complete stranger who voted NOPE who has never set foot in my LJ before. Research is research, right? Right.)

Also live JOURNAL = the use of the word journal does not make us journalists. Unless you have a degree in journalism, in which case you obviously are one. But I still hold that LJ didn't make you a journalist. /bi-annual reminder that I'm just a person trying to make people laugh for the most part and should not be taken seriously

...unless I'm talking plants. Then you should. :)

Here is my deal: you have all of my peppers, and I will have all of your cilantro. Yum!!!!!

Although I will leave the cilantro in your garden for your little friends.</p>

Also, now I have that Sesame Street song in my head...

Love you!

I AM FULLY ON BOARD WITH THIS PLAN. Mmm, peppers...

I can easily grow enough for you AND my friends! :D

(I linked to the Sesame Street song, just to make it stick in there more. I'm cool awful like that.)

Love YOU!

SQUIRRELS! Oh, they are such rotten little buggers, right? :D

I once grew scores of pumpkins from my compost heap. I did not ever plant pumpkins. (We suspect a stray seed in a jack-o-lantern.)

This cheers me up. One of my favorite songs from Sesame Street. =)

Yay ladybugs! One landed on my arm on yesterday's walk and I just let it tag along until it got where it was going.

That song makes me happy.

I have SCORES of them on that cilantro plant. I put in a ladybug habitat a few years ago, so they're overwintering in my garden now. <3

I can't think of many old school Sesame Street songs that don't put a huge smile on my face. :D

I am going to have that song WEDGED CROSSWAYS IN MY BRAIN for the rest of the week and I hate you quite a lot for it (though I love you in many other ways).

I AM VERY SORRY (not sorry) TO GIVE YOU AN EAR WORM. Quick! Sing the pinball song by the Pointer Sisters!

:D

oooh, so pretty is cilantro. I've never found much use for it otherwise, so knowing that it helps out lady bug and gentleman lady bugs is a wonderful thing. I always learn something when I read your journal, stoney! Thank you.

I am happy to have dropped some knowledge today! (And I grow fennel for the Swallowtails. Oh, they come in DROVES for fennel!)

Oh, I failed to put in that it's a ladybug larva up at the top. :D That's a baby! Then it'll go through its final developmental stage and become the familiar ladybug we all love. The larval stage is the most productive stage, too. They eat twice as many aphids as adult ladybugs.

That was a good reminder for me to pinch off the flowers, too! (But my friends keep hanging out on the flowers... WHAT TO DO?) :D

I DID get french fries AND chocolate yesterday! I felt that it was deserved. Regular ol' fries, but the chocolate was dark with both fresh and dried raspberries in it. NOM NOM! <3

I take my laughing very seriously. <3

So happy to hear that the ladybugs like cilantro, that word "fetid" was coined for Cilantro,I am certain. (FOUL smell!)
Yuck! And then Chipotle came along w cilantro lime rice and I cannot leave it alone (seriously, I crave it like chocolate.) (My mouth is a traitor.)

Oh, isn't cilantro the worst?! BLECH, ICK, PTOOEY! However. I love proper salsa, which contains cilantro. I just need other things to drown it out and make it a member of the choir, not a soloist.

:D

Seeing that thing, I can't help but think of the Disney song The Ugly Bug Ball... X-D

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
