Spud, what is the typical pattern for rain im your area?
Hasn't rained here, more than a few drops, since June 18th. That's 3 months, and none in the forecast for next week.
Joan, thans for the borax ant bait. We have lots of ants and I have a box of borax in the laundry room. Gotta try that!
I never thought of turnips as ground cover. Interesting! Weeds grow so fast here, I wonder if I can just use the weeds?
Raining hard now. I wonder if I can scrounge up one more batch of tomatoes to dry? Most are splitting or rotting now. After this, maybe I can pull them out and plant garlic?

I never had any more come into the house, Joan. They had been coming in under the kitchen door in the corners, so I spread the corn starch in the corners of the doorsill outside. I don't know if that worked, or they just disappeared, but I didn't have any more come in.
Thanks Joan. I'll try that borax bait.
Patricia, did corn starch work to get rid of ants?
We get lots of ants here too, & the huge ones here are the carpenter ants. I tried corn starch.
Here is a simple, inexpensive way to tackle the ants in the kitchen and in the garden. Living in a forest, we have the sugar ants and those huge brown/black ants that come in from the woods. Lots of remedies do not work. This one seems to work, however, it takes constant attention for it seems that as soon as one nest of ants become toast another one moves in.
Hi, Kathy, yes, I have kind of a routine, although Laura and Larry's days start when the first customer calls, and that often is about 9 AM. They like an egg, bacon, and fried potatoes for many breakfasts and instead, I like toast with peanut butter and jam, coffee when I get up. So we live parallel lives.
I like to nibble on the greens in the garden and bright red tomatoes.
My red tomato produced wonderfully this year, both the big ones and the tiny ones; they have a delightful tang in the mouth when they release their juice.
The orange tomatoes are as prolific but have no flavor whatsoever. Their skins are tough, almost like eating a rubber balloon. All spring and early summer I thought they were just not developed yet. Now, they fall off the vine so I know they are fully developed. They are not worth space they took up in the greenhouse and I will pull them out tomorrow and put them at the bird feeding station where the deer and birds can eat them.
