Barbara, I'm glad you had a chance to taste your mulberries.  I love mine.  They are so delicious.

Welcome back Randy! Hope your trip was everything you wanted it to be!  We have had the rainiest spring in several years - thunderstorms today. I'm in awe at how fast things are growing and blooming.  Ate mulberries for the first time off my tree - so sweet even more so than blackberries which they look very much like.

After two weeks absence, it's time to tackle the garden full force!

Joan is posting from hospital, so she must be getting better.

At least they aren't in the house but they are getting close to it. I wonder how large the colony is for it to have so many hills of all sizes.
I hope Joan is doing well. Carl too.

In the past, I've used quite toxic materials to get rid of ants.  It does the job for about a year, but they continue to fly in and create new colonies, so it's a never ending battle.  I've decided to quit using toxic materials, and will try Patricia's method.

Patricia, I'll try that. All this precipitation seems to have driven ants up the hill where I live. They are everywhere.

Patricia, I've not heard of your ant killer before, but I'm going to try it.  Those critters are a pain.  I'm glad I don't have fire ants, but what I do have eat a lot of my strawberries, farm aphids on some of my fruiting plants, and get in the house where they sometimes sting me.

Comment by Barbara Livingston on April 15, 2015 at 2:15am

Patricia, your ant killer is new to me and I've printed it. Will give it a try as I have large mounds nears my front walk - Fire Ants - nasty little critters. Although what it will do to them makes me shudder.

Daniel, I've come to the decision that this year will be a test case for all my newly planted items and I'm going to let nature take its course.  I'll definitely learn which things will need intervention from me.  Since this has been the wettest Spring in several years there's a good chance some of my plants won't get pollinated.

It boggles my mind how you track each tree and plant and help it along with pollination, grafting, pruning, et al.  Info on figs and pawpaw is fascinating!  

Kathy, I don't have that many ants as they don't like the rain and seem to go underground - I do have snails by the gazillion and when I walk down my walkway after dark it is crunchy. :)  Tomorrow I'm putting out rows of diatomaceous earth in hopes of at least slowing them down.
