- Pill Bugs are nifty. I saw this character on my very last night shift walkabout. The street lights made everything look orangey and Mars-like, so I said a silent prayer for the recently lost Mars Rover, R.I.P. Opportunity. Back to the Pill Bugs; I've talked about this before, but in case you missed it... Pill Bugs, AKA Roly Polies, are terrestrial crustaceans, meaning, they are related to things we often like to eat such as crabs and lobsters; I've never eaten one, in case you were wondering. And I probably shan't ever do so. Pill Bugs are not native to the United States, apparently they hail from Europe. They are important members of our collective as they are part of the team that helps to decompose stuff and things. One day I hope they will dine in what is left of me, which seems a far superior way to be broken down as compared to other more common methods. #pillbugs #pillbugsofinstagram #pillbug #pillbugarecool #rolypolies #crustaceans #terrestrial #terrestrialcrustacean #armadillidiidae #notarmadillo #woodlouse #woodlice #doodlebug #rvacity #rvadowntown #mcv #vcuhs #er #emergencyroom #emergencymedicine #nightshift #nightshifter #nightshifternomore #nightshiftwalkabout #richmond #richmondva #virginia
- My red muscorum isopods just had their first babies this morning! I'm so excited. They took forever, I swear. Those little teeny white guys are newborn isopods, also called mancae. They're currently shedding their exoskeletons for the first time. It'll take a few sheds before their adult color comes in, so now I get to wait to see if any of them are red like their parents or if they're all just carrying the red gene. (I know the adults look brown in this pic, but they're actually a very pretty red.)

- Isopod update/reflection? ...isopod hour
So I've determined that the zebras (armadillidium maculatum) are my favorite. They're really rewarding in terms of reproduction, and they're suuuuuper active. Anywhere I look in their tub, there's some kind of activity. I also like how big some of the original isopods are getting, like little tanks!
I downsized my wild caught colony of mostly armadillidium nasatum (there were some vulgare in there apparently) to just whatever babies got scooped up in the substrate, any peach specimens the gal with her butt hanging out of the sweet gum pod produced for me, and her and a few other adults with higher contrast patterns. I'm honestly kinda surprised my peach girl is still kicking; what is the lifespan on these isopods anyway??? And finally... the rubber duckies. I was starting to get really discouraged because I couldn't find a few of them, and there'd been no sign of babies this whole time. BUT!! Yesterday, I was moving them into a smaller container, and as I was combing through the substrate, I saw at least five separate brand spanking new babies! No color on them at all yet, the only way I knew they were there and not just part of the calcium I mixed into the substrate was the fact that they were moving. So there could be more somewhere in there! I knew they were slow breeders, but boy did they have me worried haha.

- Gardening isn't always easy. In fact, most of the times it isn't. It's you fiddling around with nature and she will decide if she approves of what you are doing or not.
Yesterday I had my big transplanting day. Everything went into the ground. I had to rush some of the plants because I only had this one day to do it. I wasn't able to harden off all them in time, which resulted in great heat stress and some sunburn, easy to spot on the bean leaves you see underneath my hand. In the picture I am holding the leaves of my badly damaged pepper plants. They were hardened of properly but in order to not have them out in the elements too much, I kept them in a spot where there were massive amounts of hungry woodlice waiting. I put them there unknowingly and checked back on them 3 days later. By then the damage had been done and the little bit of sun we got the last day burned the defenseless chewed on parts. Being rushed while gardening never is a good idea...
Never the less I got everything done and I will show you around in the following days in my May garden tour! Have a great week guys! Be friends with nature, don't try to rush her 😊😉
