  • Dealing with Deer

    I have a live-and-let-live approach to dealing with wildlife that sometimes can be destructive. As long as things don’t get too out of hand, we share and deal with the downside. 

    In the past the deer have browsed on the lower limbs of trees on their way to other feeding grounds. Not a problem until last summer when I found that they had eaten every single daylily flower (and there were lots) and munched on my favorite begonias. And this year they’ve added flowers from the pots on the front porch to their menu.

  • Controlling Insect Pests in Your Garden

    As gardeners, we deal with lots of challenges in our gardens.

    Unwanted insects in your garden are just that: unwanted. Unwanted insects may eat and destroy your vegetables and prized flowers, something both farmers and home gardeners have in common.

    Organic gardening is a means of controlling unwanted insects naturally, without the use of dangerous pesticides.

    Read on to find out how to control unwanted garden insects naturally that are also cheap, easy and good for the earth.
