Imagine you are walking along a nicely kept, quiet, suburban street, and you come upon a woman in her front yard. She's spinning wildly, shrieking, and all the while spraying with what looks like a Windex bottle into the air.
That woman was me.
Yesterday I discovered that we have a Japanese Beetle problem. They are devouring my roses and a tree out front and I'm terrified they are going to go for my dahlias next. I hate these bugs. I found out that if you spray them with soapy water you can kill them, so I went out armed with my Mrs. Meyers all-purpose cleaning solution. (Apparently it's a little more "all-purpose" than I realized.) When I was spraying the ones on the tree, they started flying around and I feared an attack, so I just sprayed away. My neighbors probably think I've gone Betty Draper.
Ahhhh.... the joys of gardening.
