Poison: We've been getting an awful lot of ants and roaches so we hired our termite person's company to apply some insecticide around the perimeter of the house. We noticed quite a few dead roaches the following day. We're a little nervous about the herbs in our garden though. I think we'll wait until there's a goodly rainfall before we eat anything from the garden.
Pineapple: We were so surprised at how sweet the pineapple my mother has been tending tasted that we decided to go ahead and plant its crown also. We stuck the crown in a jar of water until the roots formed. Now we'll be able to plant it in soil.
Papayas: The papaya tree that we thought would never bear fruit has finally given us a fruit to harvest.
Mom has been watching the fruit ripen for several days and insisted that Art go out and pick it this morning. It's still pretty firm though so we'll wait a few days before we have it for breakfast.
See that other papaya tree quivering in the background? I just threatened it with the axe if it doesn't start doing something soon.
