Well unfortunately there is nothing really to report this week. Thanks to mother nature I have lost everything but my garlic. In one week we went from 82 for a high and 50 for the lows to 45 for a high and 25 for a low! The shock was to much, combined with a HUGE dust storm has cost me nearly every plant I have. This week we will be replanting inside so stay tuned for a NEW set of plants. I am excited to get to start my herb garden as well, this week alone nearly 20 plant varieties will be planted!
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
