The Backyard Naturalist                                               by: Joan Lane    

Mark Cullen is my garden guru.  I eagerly read his column every week in the Toronto Star.  So it was with great consternation when he advised consigning invading tomato horn worms to a permanent demise in a pail of soapy water.  Wrong, wrong, wrong.

 

Thanks to our Maureen Greenwood I knew the ugly and unloved pest was the larvae of the exotic and fascinating Hummingbird Moth, an important pollinator.  Much better is the advice of horticulturalist Sonia Day who recommends several other courses of action.

 

1.  Because they mostly strip the leaves off the tops of the plants that have finished growing due to their arrival late in the growing season, she leaves them to their task.

 

2.  You could move them to another member of the Solanaceae family, eg. peppers, potatoes or wild deadly nightshade which you can often find along the ragged edges of your yard.  Or, you can do what Maureen does.  She relocates them to the empty field adjacent to her garden.  They must survive her transfer for she has actually seen these fascinating beauties cavorting in her garden.  The moth, not the horn worm.  She even has pictures of both on her camera.

 

I want to thank Maureen first of all for informing me about this metamorphosis and then sharing Sonia Day's article on the whole phenomenon.  Nature is truly magical.

A Journey of a Thousand Miles must Begin with a Single Step.  LAO TZU


A courageous young woman of 43, Melanie Vogel, with a German accent, who has called Toronto home for 6 years, is walking across this great nation of ours, Canada.  She began her journey from Cape Spear, Nfld. on May 31st, 2017. She was drawn to this adventure because of her love of nature, resourcefulness, peace and to meet the peoples of our wonderful country. She had also worked with non-profit organizations in Toronto, and knew she was being guided spiritually as well as a need to help save this planet with knowledge to help with pollution of our earth and rivers and streams. She is basically following The Trans Canada Trail as much as possible.







 

Strangely enough, the Bible passages I thought of referring to, for this summer message are; The parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37)

Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. ‘Teacher,’ he said, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’  He said to him, ‘What is written in the law? What do you read there?’ He answered, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.’  And he said to him, ‘You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.’ But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’  Jesus replied, ‘A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.  So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan while travelling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity.  He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.  The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, “Take care of him; and when I come back, I will repay you whatever more you spend.” Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbour to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?’  He said, ‘The one who showed him mercy.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do likewise.

Our 3rd Annual Fish Dry was a great success. Dan, Gail and Jay did a great job cooking up the fish and chips and keeping the hungry people fed. Thanks to all the great helpers! We had a sold out crowd! Everyone enjoyed some very “fishy” music from down east, thanks to Mr. Carroll. If anyone would like some fries we have three bags left over, just let me know if you would like them. Our proceeds from the event were $1,600.

 

Thanks again for all your help hope to do it again next June.
