Can you believe South Texas, has a possible chance of snow? I wanted to bring in the broccoli for dinner to go with some cauliflower and left over grilled chicken. Those little winged monsters keep chasing me in the house and away from THEIR FOOD. LOL
We have been busy this passed weekend. Do you remember we bought hubby's new car the day after Christmas? Well seems the dealership held up the issuance of the state license plates because; we did not give them two titles (we only had one). So, if you ever buy a car, and trade one in with an original Maryland title. (It was registered in Texas yearly since 2006.) Remember you will need two titles.
Who knew? I will say this; those folks wishing to buy from GILLMAN HONDA in Selma, Texas just a -- note their customer service is lacking nor are they proactive in completing their transactions. This meant, we had to drive back to Selma, 1 1/2 hrs each way to sign a form. I had to tell them which forms they needed and the website the forms are located.
On the way home from there we stopped at Texas Pride Barbecue, which has been featured on Food Network's 'Drive-ins, Diners and Dives,' and had lunch. I loved the antiques with all the enamel signs and items it reminded me of an episode of American Pickers. However, none of us really liked the barbeque, the brisket was kinda greasy with a salty rub and the chicken was cooked dry. We did eat all the beans and homemade mac n cheese though. We watched Zephyr play at their play ground and then came home.

Sunday, hubby pulled out the tiller to prep the first of our garden beds. So far, we have a small area winter garden that our broccoli and cabbage have, it measures 10' by 15' and this will become our herb garden in a few weeks. The bed he is tilling in the picture is 15' by 45' and will contain our primary vegetables that do no vine. Lesson learned from the first year, do not put in watermelons or squash near other beds; they take over and make the garden too snakey especially in this area.
This is how I encourage fire ants to leave my garden beds or planters. I make them mad and then pour corn meal on the angry mound. They eat the corn meal and take it to their nests; after drinking water. No more ants. Simple treatment which may have to be done a couple of times but, effective and green way of controlling fire ants.
Off to enjoy the rest of this lovely sunny day with the boys outside.
Take care Ya'll
