|The rechargeable "dust buster" vacuums may work on bugs. They would be easy to carry around the garden. It would be curious to see someone wheeling a shop vac around the yard vacuuming plants. I wonder if using a wide dry paint brush to knock the bugs off and a pail of soapy water to catch them would work. (I use a wet paint brush and pail of soapy water to get aphids). I am going to miss the old neighborhood kids during Japanese beetle season. They used to like to squish and stomp the for me!
They had good garden stuff at the dollar store today - I'll take pics and share. The regular store had a better price on little cups 40/$1 versus 20 or less for $1 at the dollar store. I even got a couple of packs of seeds - yes, my name is andi and I am a seedaholic. They were 4/$1. One can't have too many cactus zinnias, california poppies.....
I missed getting a calender this year. If I don't get a free one, I grab one half price in January. By the time I got out to the store, there weren't any calendars. I am going to try to print one out that fits my old school organizer. I need to update and redo my address book as well. I like to have a crash proof hard copy calendar and address book. I must be the only one still using an old fashioned hard copy organizer. I may have to find my old copy of Corel Draw 3 for a template. I haven't found one the right size, but I need top look some more.
I got a pineapple at the store, I am going to try growing the top as a houseplant. I also got mangoes, has anyone ever grown a mango pit?
Time to take Winston out and scrape some melting ice/slush off the porch, deck and walkways before it refreezes.
