Last weekend I gave my apple trees to a neighbour of mine. I couldn’t stomach another year of fighting coddling moth, where I would have to spend hours walking around the trees and slipping nylon socks over the apples for protection.
I made my first pseudo homegrown salsa verde this evening. I grew the tomatillos and cilantro for it, and used serrano pepper, anaheim pepper, lime juice, onion and garlic from the store.
I had a few spare minutes this evening so I decided to put together a house for mason bees. Mason bees are native to BC and play an incredibly important role in the environment.
