    Too bad Deebo we don't live closer. I didn't sell a lot of plants this year only sold about half what I sold last year so I have a lot of extras and there going to waste. They will be chicken feed by the end of the week. Don't have the time to take care of them any longer.

    Deebs,

    Be aware that 2 types of "citronella plants" exist. One smells really good...very similar to the smell of a citronella candle but does not really contain the chemical that mosquitos hate...and real mosquito repellent citronella which is in the same family of lemongrass...this one works.

    We keep both around...

    And here is the real deal, Lemongrass which repels mosquitos like a champ! We keep it by the front porch so I can sip my whisky in peace!

    Ok
    I walk out to pick some cucumbers, peppers and squatch from the garden and I catch these little bastards sneaking up on my delicious veggies hoping to snag a free meal and my expense.

    I unleash the hounds and the free-loaders scatter like caught theives...

    Or so I thought, only to go outside a few minutes later and catch two of the little thugs still hiding in the woods a few feet from where I chased them away earlier...

    You do seem to have a yummy garden! I may get myself a set of antlers and give it a try myself...

    Well with the last of the main garden planted we will need lots of water. Got the first flush system done. Its not pretty but its doing the job. Over 450 gallon capacity. One inch of rain is almost perfect to fill the tanks. This is only collecting from 1/4 of my roof. Because I moved the tanks I spent a little more that I wanted to but its better where its at now. I still plan to change the first flush holding pipes some but I made do with what fitting I had on hand at the time.Click image for larger version.

    Thanks it was a lot of trial and error but I think I got it the way I want and in my budget. Plan to add another tank sometime.
