Have been using natural spray with mum oil main ingredient. Seems to take care of the ones inside.

My dogs are passed. Missi passed end of last September, my red spotty heeler. Got to vet she went in van. Her sister passed awfully 2011, Kelsie, poisoned. So quite a void I want to fill with another red spotty heeler female, fixed, vetted and chipped. So been collecting cat stuff too. Rescue's looking at and local SPCA. No one to keep me company when I am in my garden.

Nancy make the bug traps, put outside next to the house. Margerine tubs or cottage cheese containers poke holes around top fill w/soy sauce and a bit of vegetable oil. Bury in dirt up to the holes sow bugs,ear wigs etc will go in and drown. Don't let your dogs get to your traps they will eat them if you still have dogs. Don't know about those bugs but ants won't cross dish soap you might try a line of soap around the house. They are not really a bug they are in the crab family they do like to come in not sure why.

Can you get a photo shooting North towards BC.

I'm in Yakima County a couple of miles from the Yakima River. It runs same direction as the hills in front of my house. Not a good pic but think it shows the hills will keep looking for a better one.

Yes, trying raise enough cash to do trip to coast to visit what is left of family and close friends.

This past Saturday almost blew my sale away. Spent on a good lunch yesterday and some needed groceries.

Hopefully any wind that comes will dry up where my veggies will go. Looking forward to garlics, first time.

Darn sowbugs in house and where are they coming from.

Don I wish I had that little strip behind the fence full of blueberries and covered with some sort of netting to keep all the birds out. All my blueberry plants are still in pots from the move. With all the wineries around here I hope to get some more barrels like I had at the last house. Hopefully not have to spend a fortune to get them.

Yes Don memories but I wish I hadn't wasted all those years searching for who knows what when all I ever wanted to do was be a farmer. But I had to get away from here back then my grandma still smoked and it was killing me living with that and them always telling me no even for the good stuff. Couldn't watch them dieing too. I'm back and trying to make it nice again. It sure fell apart since others who lived here weren't as invested in it as we were and I am. It is my home. Grandpa gave his niece a life estate here, her grandson lived with her. After she died he wouldn't get out. He wouldn't even take out his trash, pop cups every where stuck to everything, weevils all over the table and and and total grossness. I took 20 big bags of just his take out garbage out of here. I won't share the nasty pics of this place on this site.

No I am between Tri-Cities and Yakima, down wind from Hanford nuclear site.

   Vicky, just being at your location must bring back great memories, no wonder that you are motivated to bring it back to life!  Is that part of Washington a part of the famed Williamette valley, that motivated so many settlers to move there by wagon train.
