Square Foot Garden: Cucumbers, Lady bugs, and Baby bug!

This is what happens when you skip checking the garden for a day...

Mommy, check out this cucumber!

It is mine, all mine!

I think we might need a bigger basket!
We've got lots of ants, so I thought we wouldn't have much of an aphid problem, but it looks like the aphids figured out that the ants don't like climbing up the cucumber vine.  So, we decided that more lady bugs were needed.  We released them at night when it was cooler out, and it has been 4 days now and they are still hanging out in the garden.  The aphids are almost all gone, but the sad thing is that once the aphids are gone, so too will the lady bugs be gone.

Loving the lady bugs!
