Garden Headway

1. Battle of the Ants, Round CCLVIII: Us: 1. Them: 0. Thanks to Terro. They're not gone completely, but they're concentrated around the bait. They gorge themselves on it, but I'm  happy to do 2-hour feedings to keep them out of my pantry. And yes, I have gotten up in the middle of the night to give them more food. If you aren't blessed with children yet you may as well have ants, right?

2. I exercised! I felt so good the rest of the day... but I'm really feelin' it now. Ouch. Aaaaand, despite Easter sweets remaining in the house, I haven't gained any weight this week. (Haven't lost, but haven't gained... this is a small success, remember?).

3. My husband and I finally built the boxes for my square foot gardens! And I got the components for "Mel's Mix" (equal parts Sphagnum moss, vermiculite and 5 different kinds of compost). Maybe my 10 year long dream of having a garden will actually come true this year.

Check out others' small successes and share your own at Faith & Family Live.

If you're having ant problems, terro is a good start. If you're concerned about the toxin around food or children, you can put some peppermint oil around where you think they are getting in. It is a natural way of warding them off and we've had lots of success with it.
