A Very Scary Awful Ant

Seth came running into the living room to tell us there was a "very scary awful ant" in his bedroom. Adam went to investigate, and I then heard furniture moving and toilet flushing, so I went to inspect this monster ant. Turns out a very scary awful ant is really just an ordinary sized cockroach. Ewww.

Fall is in the Air

Well in Florida, not really. But summer has ravaged the garden, the birds and squirrels have feasted on my poor sunflowers and ripped off most of their heads, and the summer sun has fried the tomatoes and watermelon plants, so it was time to sow under the summer garden and replant for the fall. I spent the morning doing so, and now we are ready for Fall veggies! We put in tomatoes, cabbage, spinach, kale, squash, cucumbers and relocated the sole cauliflower that survived the summer sun. Our berries and grapes survived the heat, so they continue to prosper, hopefully they will survive the brutal Orlando Winter (teehee) and flower in the spring.
