When I got home from work,this afternoon,I took my customary stroll around the yard.Just checking things out....And I had company......
I think the moth ball trick is working! Nothing or no one has dug anything up since I put a few down.I was reluctant to put too many out because of the smell.But so far nothing has been disturbed.I don't put them down around anything edible,but,over the weekend,something jumped in one of the containers with the squash seedlings and had a grand ole time.So,yesterday,I replanted everything in the container,re seeded,,and put a moth ball on the ground beside the container.It seems to have worked!Time will tell......or was I just lucky?
It is the height of oak tree pollen season,here in this part of Florida.It plays havoc with everything.Especially pool decks and swimming pools.And when you have a husband who is allergic,life can be ______(go ahead-you fill in the blank).
The specks you see in this picture are not me being a bad photographer,but oak pollen falling.You may have to click on the picture to get a better idea.And,yes,somebody needs to refill the bird feeder.
Don't get me wrong.We love our old growth oaks.Especially,in the summer months,here in Florida.For the shade and cooling effect they have on the yard.But they sure can be a pain at times.
