Chicory attacked!

Urban people are funny. Despite being a biologist, I was shocked to my see my chicory was being inhabited by aphids!

After the scare, though, I just washed with water and my own fingers to take off the animals. It seem to have worked, at least for now.

Growing organic is worth it, but requires constant and careful watch to combat pests without using toxic products.
