Ditomaceouse earth is supposed to kill lots of insects but it's tricky to put down. You need to wear a mask over the nose and mouth. And the wind must be still.
Spud good to hear from you. What's a spineless berry ??

I've been eating my large spinless blackberries for a week, and they are tasty.  I think they taste better than they have for the last 2 years.  I had planned on removing them but will let them go for another year.

Randy, that's awesome!
I thought about planting nut trees, but decided I would not live to see them bear. I do have some hazelnuts. Every year, squirrels get every nut. Ive never tasted one.

Last April, I planted 4 nut trees on "the farm". The two English walnuts made it, but the pecan trees didn't--or at least so I thought--until I went to water them today. Low and behold, there was a nice sprout coming up from the base of one. Nice surprise!

The only problem is, Daniel, we grow much more than we can eat! I'm thankful I only have one zucchini plant, and it is a volunteer! I have 5 in the fridge. And I may be turning green eating collards, chard, kale, and lettuce--not to  mention green beens. Then, there's sweet corn. Mercy!

Daniel, I like your wonderful harvest.

Kathy and Daniel, I saved your methods of killing ants.  Will try them the next time they show-up where they're not wanted.

My daily dose of cheer,

Daniel, a beautiful harvest for breakfast and snacking on throughout the day!. 

I like the various ant remedies! It's great to have alternatives to try.

I had a lot of weeds in some areas this year.  In some areas it's just too much work to remove them, like inside the deer cages I construct for fruit trees.  Summers here are very dry, so now is a good time to pull weeds and the areas stay clean for a while.

I don't know if they work, but here are some ant remedies.  I liked the idea of diatomaceous earth, since it's good for slugs too.  Also mixing Equal with apple juice, I guess you put that in their pathway, then they are attracted to the apple juice and get into it, and the equal kills them.  I don't know if it works.

Spud, I loved your method for ants.  I am anxious to see if it works here. 

Today's kitchen garden harvest.  I feel so blessed!

Also about 30 pounds of baking potatoes.  Will bake one for tomorrow's breakfast.
