    *Shudder* I had those things all over my hands after I pulled out my crop. Do you know they dye your hands purple?

    Urrrgh – really?

  3. I hate aphids too especially the black ones! They breed at a fantastic rate which I suppose would happen when they are born pregnant!

      Are they really? That is a fabuilous bit of trivia! I seem to have a mix of eggs and insects on mine – but the pyrethrum seems to have helpfully got rid of quite a lot.

    oh I hate aphids. They are just covering my mums lately and just don’t want to go away! Sorry you got them.

    Just tell people that the black specks in the Aioli are bits of crushed black pepper!

    I have them too, how do you get rid of them?

    • Liz says:

      I have to admit I sprayed mine with Pyrethrum which has been pretty effective – it will also kill beneficial insects like ladybirds though so you need to check you’ve haven’t got anything nice in the area.
