Well been super busy this week. As you've read I've started my new job as a teachers assistant. Loving all the staff although my bum is not loving all the sitting for trainings. I just want to take a minute and post how everything is. Here in west Texas we've been blessed lately with rain YAY! There is a severe thunderstorm warning tonight so it will be another long night *sigh*no but it is what it is an we are happy for the rain. The chickens are doing great but still no eggs to be see. I suppose I should see how old they are before I bash them ;) here are some pictures of whats going on. Garden is iffy at best and life is crazy :p bring on back to school!
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
