it’s the circle of life, it’s food for someone else, and food is important for all species. In my house, I try take the spiders back outside, especially if they get stuck in my bath or similar, but for the spiders that have happily made a home, I leave them be – knowing that they will eat the bugs for me.
I leave weeds to grow a bit to see what they look like. I’m glad that I’ve got some nettles and brambles, as I can have nettle soup in the spring and blackberries on my porridge in autumn.
Some weeds that I have got sometimes produce beautiful flowers, so I keep them, some are really unslightly and no bugs are living on them, so I’m gonna get the shears out for them shortly.
My roses don’t look too happy, but at the end of the day, the flowers give us pleasure to look at, but for insects that is their home and food, so it’s more important to give it to them.
I wish I had some wild garlic growing. Might try see if I can buy some seeds.
