    My garden's further behind than some of you, I can't wait until I can start harvesting. 😁 I'm happy to report that whatever was eating my tomato seedlings hasn't done it recently. I decided to make a hot sauce repellant and set up a small battery motion sensor light at that end of the bed...

    This past weekend it was highs in low 70s here. Last night it got down to 42. This week's supposed to be highs of 70s, maybe 80 one day. But I'm heading to FL early early on Thursday so I won't be here to enjoy it this weekend.

    I love the dragons and the glass bottles! I have a thing for glass bottles, I love them, no idea why. The panther feels familiar to me somehow but I can't place where I would have seen something like it before. 🤔

    When do you quit? serious question here.

    I agree with what Urban said about the equipment, imo old is better made, but newer does tend to be easier to carry and sometimes use. I think we all need to stop and reassess our situations once in a while. And I don't mean just preps or equipment, but also habits, living situation, health...

    I would think it would be trapped in the chicken wire then, the glue boards are too big for it to escape. I'd give them a try in that case.

    Where "NOT" to be in event of CME "Superstorm" (a map)

    Looks like I'm far enough from Boston. I have a friend who lives near there though.

    The sticky traps may work but be careful with them. We used some in the cellar once along the ceiling, caught a mouse and it fell to floor. My cat investigated and got stuck as well. It was a nightmare trying to catch the terrified cat then unstick him from the dead mouse and trap. I never used...

    What's everybody doing today?

    I hope the various health issues I'm seeing here all improve quickly! I'm working as usual, seems like the only time I can get caught up here. 😆 When I get home I'm too busy to sit and read. Caught a handful more mice in my garden beds, glad I bought more traps. Other than that just waiting...

    Sprouting sprouts, shrooming etc.

    "WHAT" will it take for you to "SHIFT into OVERDRIVE" and Floor-it.....???

    Little late to the party but meh. I only started prepping about 10 years ago when a natural disaster smacked me in the face and showed me how unprepared I was. I vowed that day that I would never be caught off guard and helpless like that again. Back then I used to talk to people about it and...

    I've had trouble with beets too, which sucks cuz I love them. My soil is rocky and kinda sandy. But a hot pepper might be nice for a change. Yeah, I'm in Mass, so I'm weeks behind most of you. That's a great idea to pull up the plants, if a frost is predicted I usually just grab all the...

    So I woke up in the middle of night and heard a soft noise. I laid there half asleep for several long seconds before I identified it. Rain. It was rain dripping on my window sill. That's how little rain we've been getting. lol
