Monday is typically when I update on gardening. I spent all afternoon thinking of the perfect post to write. As I sit here with my children trying to explain the tragedy that has happened and why humanity can't just love I decided that today's update will be postponed. Our hearts are sinking for the people affected by today's events and we pray that all can find peace and love from the ashes of this day. Hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight. I will be back tomorrow God bless.
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
