I’m an iced tea kind of girl! Especially as summer arrives, its my favorite drink on these hot summer days. And its made right on my patio under the warm sun (just like my mom used to make when I was a little girl).
The only problem is this new Lipton “cold brew”. Yea, you have iced tea in a matter of minutes, but what's the fun in that? I want mine to steep in the hot sun all day.
I looked high and low at the grocery store for the original Lipton iced tea bags and found nothing! Regardless of what the directions said, my tea brewed in the sun.
4-5 hours later, I had a cold glass of iced tea waiting for me in my ladybug garden.
Speaking of which, do you have pest control problems in your garden? My garden is infested with those irritating white flies! They’re small little flies that live under your plants leaves and cause problems. Plus they multiply over night!
Andrew and I tried many different pest controls last year, however this year I’m growing herbs and vegetables…so I want to be more organic. That’s where cute little ladybugs come in.
My garden is swarming with them, approximately 1500 little ladies. I picked them up from my local nursery. They’re supposed to eat white flies and many other insects lurking in the garden. I hope they work!
Do you have a cold beverage of choice that you make just for the summer? Or an organic pest control remedy? Please share!
Have a lovely afternoon.
