My calendula takes forever to dry. Unfortunately, I’ve always had “flower bugs” that need to be soaked and rinsed off. — I remember since I was a kid having these teeny bugs all over my hands, washing off with a hose, and leaving flowers outside and not in the house, all because of these little things — To this day I don’t know what they are called (nuisance?).
I managed to harvest 40 flowers today and it took forever to clean them.
I have more bloom everyday and with this heat, I have to get them right when they are fully open or else they will dry up and fall to the ground.
Everyone has the way gardening works for them! I try all the suggestions and use what works for me. These beautiful flowers can sit on my counter as long as they want 😍
This insect is pretty tiny and thought it was cool looking. forgot to take a pic of it when it was on my hand for size comparison. I can’t seem to find out the name of it yet. If you know, please let me know. 😊
