We had some hot and humid days this past week. Also had a couple of thunder storms with heavy rain on both Saturday and Sunday. I guess the gardens will get a good drink from that rain. Guess we will get more during the week.

(I tried the hint with the water, sugar and boric acid powder for getting rid of ants. DID NOT WORK. The ants went all around the dish; never went in the dish, so don’t know if I did something wrong or what. Maybe someone else can let me know if they tried it and if it worked.)
