Patricia, I know the feeling. In my case, prostate. Yippee!

Gotta try it (garlic). My raspberry patch is swarming with the little buggers. We've had so much rain this month, my rain barrels are overflowing. I may not have to use them this summer. I put several drops of oil in them to keep mosquitos from "hatching".

LOL, I'm stealing that, Patricia!

Fresh garlic, Joan, and there's also a big jar of dried garlic flakes for when I'm in a hurry. I started the Wartime Farm series - very enjoyable!

There are eight episodes, about an hour each. Each episode gives a different aspect of war rationing and its impact on the people. A wonderful series. It ends after a gruelling five years + struggle of Britains involvement in WW II as seen through the eyes of farmers. 

There are some lessons here for us as we face increasing economic challenges and changing weather patterns. The rationing isn't imposed on us, however, there are some useful ideas. One askpect was how depleted the soils became because of the loss of farm animals. We now have chemicals to replace the manure but chemicals kill bacteria and worms, vital for a healthy soil.

Chris, do you use fresh garlic or in capsules? 

This is a perfect summer for working in the garden. A cold snap came through a few days ago that chased me in. My fingers burn like in a fire when they get cold. I have wool work gloves and I decided, at my age, I can take a day or two off.

I did nothing for two days and loved it. One thing that helped was watching the BBC series 

BBC - Wartime Farm Episode 1

It works, Randall. The midges stayed away from me when I started to use a small dose of garlic regularly. Nobody complains that I stink of garlic - but perhaps they are polite...

Love it, Patricia!

And I'll try garlic on my dog--perhaps on myself, too!
