Good morning my sweet gardening peeps. I wanted to share a quick Wednesday post with you about the weeding I need to do, watering and to pick your brains for suggestions on ‘what to do‘ with these darn ants I have here in my Zone 8 yard and in some of my edible container plantings.
I had a great suggestion from a fellow blogger and reader about my ants. I am looking forward to trying out her suggestion but first I need to save up my egg shells. I have about 10 ant piles and I am willing to try different organic remedies to get rid of these little boogers!! Let’s just start by saying planting MINT does not work, at least not for me. I have a patio pot full of mint AND it is now boiling over with ANTS!!! ugh!!! Cucumber peels did seem to work if only by relocating the little rascals to another patio pot!!! LOL So instead of ants in 3 of my container plants I have them in only 2!!
Weeding Wednesday looks like this
Watering Wednesday: no need to water because of our daily downpours. I only need to water my flower pots on my front porch. Watering on Wednesdays helps me to remember to water my potted plants.
What to do…with these darn ANTS???
Best wishes for a wonderful Wednesday and thanks again for stopping by for a quick visit. 🙂 I enjoy reading your comments, tips and suggestions. Also feel free to leave me a link of your blog and I will make plans to stop by to do some digging.
