I just remember again that pesky little pests really can ruin my best intentions.I will try and remember to vacuum the whiteflies!! Will bring great satisfaction!
Love the herb sprays for the pests.
Must find a good organic fertilizer and use it more often.

No big aha moment. But this unit was particularly inspiring. I have always been – or thought I was – too busy to do a good job with this process. I see that I just need to be in putter mode and enjoy. I really enjoy weeding, but I have an acre and sometimes get overwhelmed. Thanks for specific ideas for specific problems.

Aha – I haven’t seen Red Spiders Mites in my garden and I realise it must be the coriander and lemon grass in the garden. Thanks for the different homemade pesticide, have already tried the essential oils.

A lot of Aha moments! I think my fertilizer is too strong… Also, a lot of these pest was just “goggas” but now I know they are definitely NOT helping!

Keeping the soil fertile is a big deal. I recently started adding my chickens’ coop clean up (to put it nicely :D) to my compost pile. It’s made a world of difference is the health of my plants.

Planting in pots, I also had some marigolds around the herbs. It’s interesting to learn of other plants like bayleaf and spearmint that serve the same purpose. I also used to throw away wood/bark chips from my firewood. I now will use it for mulching. It helps to know that it improves soil quality as it decomposes

I am so head over heals in love with the herb courses that I feel encouraged enough to start my garden. I love the fact (my AHA) that I can target pests with nature, like lady bugs. I would prefer to keep chemicals away from my garden. Thank you for all the interesting tips.

The pest control was a big one. I love the fact that we have our own natural pesticides in our kitchens. I have experimented with a few herbs as pesticides and they have not failed me. But i have also as far as maintenance is concerned have formed a habit of washing my leaves every 3 to 4 months, i find dust also to some extent stunts the growth. I think maybe it blocks the leaves from absorbing water and light, but i cannot say that for sure, but it is a habit i have formed.

My biggest concern was the aspect of controlling “pests”. With the tips and guidelines above, it gives me peace of mind to refer back to the tips and guidelines above.

Honestly, it seems to become a lot more work than I want to take on, the concepts are sound, just not for me. I am learning so much and enjoying the courses, I guess at this point my major AHA moment is the fact that maybe I don’t want to start a garden. Just work with indoor herbs and buy the ones I need for my recipes.
