Dear Full Belly Farm,

I’m curious.  I’ve never seen these before. (See photo below.) What are they?  They were on my cilantro leaves.

Thanks, Jennifer



Dear Jennifer,

Oops!  So sorry, those are each a pupae of a precious little lady bug.  If we had found those on our cilantro, we would probably put them outside somewhere to hatch into beautiful lady bugs.  But I am sorry that you found it on your leaf — I hope that it didn’t bother you.

Dear CSA,

Oh it didn’t bother me at all but fearing it was some sort of scale I washed it down the sink. Now I feel bad. Hey maybe the newsletter could from time to time share this sort of info? Just a thought
