Spring
 
Any put a garden in this year?

I had to pass, not enough time, but I do miss it.

What else are you doing this spring?

Just pulled off all the screens on the house, power washed the stucco, and washed the inside and outside of all the windows. My annual spring cleaning is officially over.

Cleaning out the woodshop again.

Added about ten new plants this last weekend. The yard is slowly coming together. It is so enjoyable to just sit and relax out there. Almost time for the hammock.

I finally got the brush out of my front yard.

Will be moving onto the back this weekend.

Finally after three years of owning this home I finally have all the bugs and weeds under control. I have been spraying both all year every year and finally this year is easy. I am not a huge fan of the poisons but this place really needed them. We were infested with ants and the weeds were out of control.

I try to plant a couple trees a year at this time. I enjoy seeing their progress over the years.

I had to use Borax traps to get rid of the ants.

Probably the best thing I have found.

What did you use?

I used Borax traps also and also a few different Sevin brand products. I still have ants but it is nothing like it used to be.

What are Borax traps?
