don't know how well the plants work plan to try them this year if I can get my sweet annie to grow, I used the pine spray didn't have a problem to begin with so I am not sure if it kept them away or I was just lucky

Mom sorry you are still having problems, I think my daughter had to do a very bland diet for some time, it has been many yrs. since she had her surgery though
that is as bad as the pullorum testing, the solution you need cost $120 or more,,,darn it,,,,,,

With today's forecast I think staying near the coffee pot might be prudent.
funny I was looking at my lawn before it started to rain last night and thought I better take the netting down so my grand son can get it cut,, looking pretty shabby in the front.
