Hell week begins (I hate the first month de-toxing - now I feel stupid that I gave in for a week......it'll be 4 weeks before my body feels normal being normal again)
Oatmeal: I know what you mean, but for me - I'm an addict. It starts of as a few - then grows to 1 1/2 packs if I don't stop it
We had rain last night and clouds today.
The ants are taking over.
I have mixed feelings about this.
I find it hard to kill anything (on purpose); however, the ants are just really becoming a problem all around.
I gave in and decided I would try something that seemed the least drastic of all measures.
I mixed powdered sugar with borax and put them in little cups - and sunk them flush in some areas of the garden.
The ants are supposed to chow down and then die (ack - I hate that I just said that)
We'll see how it goes
(and if anyone knows of a reason why I shouldn't do this....aside fromt he fact that it kills ants.....please let me know)
I have lots of small lavender colored butterflies. Don't know exactly what they are (variety) - but they've definately made the garden their preferred romping ground (hope this is a good thing)
ecsch - better go down and over-see the serving of various kinds of animal products (I'm really beginning to dislike my job on principal) One more year......save save save.......
