Ladybugs will eat your aphids, but you have to get them into your garden and persuade them to hang around for lunch. And it is possible to have too many ladybugs, though they will only bother you, not the plants!

Insecticidal soap will usually clear up an aphid problem, if it's sprayed on regularly. There are lots of recipes for homemade soap solutions online, or you can buy it at most natural food stores.

And here's the sign-up for the next WWP swap: Lammas!

Okay, here's the sign-up for the next WWP swap, for Lammas/Lugnassadh.
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410841.0
Sign-ups will go until Saturday the 7th, and send-out will be July 24th. Since everybody is busy or away from home at this time of year, it'll be another smaller swap.

Lammas Bounty Swap
link to Gallery

The beginning of August marks the middle of Summer. The sun is at its hottest, but the days are getting noticeably shorter and winter is making its presence felt on the horizon. Lammas, Lughnassad or Lugh is one of the ancient cross-quarter festivals of Celtic Europe, honouring the first harvest, of grain, vegetables and early fruits. In the southern hemisphere, Winter is turning the corner at Imbolc and the promise of Spring is finally before us.

Let's have a swap to celebrate the glory of summer, the beauty of the Sun God and the bounty of the Goddess. This will be a mid-sized swap, consisting of one medium or two small handcrafted items, and whatever extras you and your partner want to exchange.

Some information on the Sabbat: http://www.circlesanctuary.org/pholidays/lammas.htm

Thanks Wulf, I just thought there might have been a PM or marked on that partners list (it's not in blue, still in black).  I know it will take a long time, mail always does!

I think it's just that my marking system is confusing. Rosie's name is in blue to show she sent, yours is still in black to show you haven't yet received.
             Rosie1981 -->  Quasior

And thanks for the pennies tip, Eiseldora. I'm not sure how the penny ball shown is supposed to repel too many slugs, but you could certainly line the edges of the planting beds with them. I better act fast, as Canada is eliminating the penny from our currency.

Welcome, little Nugget! So glad to hear all went well. It sounds like this is pretty routine now!

Yes, Rosie has sent, and is marked as such on the list. I have a feeling that her envelope is not going to get to Tasmania as fast as yours did to Pennsylvania. Sad

What form do you use the copper in?
1708  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Craftster Photo-hosting Wishlist? on: June 29, 2012 12:41:39 PM
If you click on MY Picture Hosting, you go to your photos, but when you upload photos they seem to go into a general photo stream, through which you have access to everything that has recently been uploaded. This doesn't seem especially secure.

While you officially can upload up to five photos at a time, I find it rarely works with more than three. Instead of uploading, it just grinds for a few minutes and then returns to the blank upload page. Then you have to try it all again. Angry And since you can't drag-and-drop or select multiple files, it's a slow process!

Also we currently have the option of entering keywords for the whole block of photos you're uploading, but it doesn't seem to work - they don't actually get attached to the photos.

One of my beefs with the photo hosting is the number of steps it takes to get there. I'd rather not have to go to "My Craftster", then "My Picture Hosting", then "upload pictures". (On the up-side, the old user interface that the picture hosting still retains does let you go to your bookmarks in one click, which I wish we could do from the Craftster home page.) Let's have a single home page button for "Upload Pictures".

My last stamp (for elyxandra) is done and in the mail tomorrow. It's just as well I was delayed finishing this one, because to tell the truth if I'd had more time I'd keep this one for myself and make her something else!

Honey-lavender biscotti! Shocked That sounds amazing!

I received a great envelope from momof2! today.



She sent me a nice note with a list of great things about midsummer, with an item associated with each of them:

1. Reading - a very sunny laminated bookmark.

2. Peach ice cream - the recipe included. It sounds delicious, and I recently bought one of those ball ice-cream freezers at a yard sale and have been meaning to try it out. I think the time has come, although our peach crop here is apparently non-existent this year, so it'll have to be imported ones.

3. Picking wild blackberries - a photo of the actual bushes

4. Planting winter greens: handmade seed disks with turnip greens and marigolds (to keep bugs away). This is absolutely brilliant! I'll have to find a spot to plant them - the problem in my garden isn't insects, it's slugs, and I think they'll just laugh at the marigolds. Tongue Maybe in a pot is safer.

Thanks so much for this - I hope you enjoyed your first Wiccan/Witchy/Pagan Swap!
