So I wanted to put together something short today (I’ve been
very busy the past few days) and I started looking through a convo me and
@BluesandBeth had recently. We’d been talking about the weirdness of Carol’s
cucumbers/tomatoes, and @bluesandbeth did some research and found some really
interesting things. So I started doing research and found a cool connection!
Okay, so let’s review the weirdness. Carol is planting
tomatoes, but the label on them is actually for a brand of cucumbers. Boston
Pickling is a type of cucumber, not tomato, so this is something tptb put
together for the show. It’s weird.
One thing @bluesandbeth found about Boston Pickling
Cucumbers is that one of their natural pests are aphids. Obviously that caught
my attention because of Beth’s ladybug symbolism. (Remember that aphids are a
tremendously destructive insect, and Ladybugs are their only natural predator.
Because of that, the fact that one of the Wolves was named Aphid made us think
Beth would help bring them down. (She’s the ladybug to their aphid.) I still think this is a thing, btw.)
