This week we have finally had sunshine and several days straight with no rain! I got to do some much needed yard work this week. Of course along the way, I managed to get poison on the lower part of my face and under my chin! Can we say itchy????? I have been using my coal tar soap and aloe which is really helping.
Mosquitos have been fierce around here, because of all the moisture we have had. If you go out around 5PM or after - you get eaten up. On another note, we have such an abundance and variety of bees and butterflies it's not funny. I have a lot of perennials that they both love as well as all the veggies, so we are blessed with many helpful and pretty insects this year.
I have been doing all my normal things this week. Other fugal happenings at our house were:
- Canned 14 pints of sweet relish
- Had about 3 days of no AC
- Picking and eating lots of fresh veggies. Starting to get beans and lots of tomatoes!!!!
- Stayed home 5 out of 7 days
- Line dried more laundry
- Meals from home
- Cut G's and my hair
- Was gifted half dozen ears of fresh corn - and sent them cukes and zukes (I love barter)
I will definitely be using it for other things now.
I still haven't captured the ground hog. I have baited the trap with all his 'favorite' things (according to the internet). Well, I guess he hasn't read the internet! He has a cafeteria of goodies in the yard, so he aint worried about no stinking trap!!!!!!
I even tried the weird things it said. Like - they hate used cat litter! REALLY? How did they figure that out? Well I scattered 20 lbs. of 'used' under the deck - didn't work. I got moth balls to put around the plants he's eating - keeping my fingers crossed on that one. I am really trying to do this without hurting it.
This coming week looks to be filled with various canning projects.
Hope you all have a great week ahead.
Stay cool and stay frugal my friends!
