My name is LaDonna and I am from Southeast Oklahoma. I love gardening. (Vegetables). I also enjoy canning and freezing. I was given this website by a relative and I have really enjoyed reading and learning from it. I have two daughters (teenange)
and a husband. My husband also enjoyes gardening but he tends to like the flowers and trees best. I also have birds in my backyard I enjoy feeding and watching.
We have lots of cardnals, chickadees, doves, wrens, finches, and my favorite are the bluebirds. Everyone pulls their load in the garden, my husband gets it ready and helps me get it planted, the daughters help gather and do lots of fetching and cleanups, the cats, they lay out and soak up sun or keep cool on the porch. The birds collect lots of insects and the critters do also, and I allow them a nibble here and there. I sometimes have to remind the cats that the birds in the yard are not for catching. I have a b-b gun that keeps them in line.
I had tried everything under the sun, vinegar spray, pepper spray, hose down with water, ..nothing worked
until we purchased that low powered daisy b-b gun.
If anyone else has this problem, let me assure you it works. Now all we have to do is rattle that gun and they are on the move. We seldom have any problems anymore, most of the cats are grown, fat and lazy.
Gardening and canning is so rewarding in the end and I think that the more I learn about the compost and compost teas will just be that more enjoyable.
