Insect invasion

NO!!!!! I was looking at my garden yesterday and noticed that I had aphids. Blech. A squirrel had already dug up my hosta in the morning, so I wasn't happy. I went inside and pulled out my gardening books. One told met he various chemicals I could use to get rid of aphids. Nope. The other book gave me some household remedies. So I mixed up some Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap and water and sprayed it on my plants. Hopefully the bugs will die or leave and my plants will be ok.
