Last week when my son was cutting up his apple he found an apple seed that had a root coming out of it. Right away we planted it root down with in some loose local dirt, watered it and cover it is plastic. By day 3 we had to remove the plastic and on day 9 this is what is growing! I will be updating once a week now, probably on Saturdays I hope you come by and see how our apple tree grows :) I wish we could get more seeds to sprout!
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
