Happy Birthday and Father's Day Dad ~ I Miss You!

June 9th is my Dad's Birthday.
1919-2010

He flew PBY's in WWII.
After the war he became a carpenter
 and did so until her retired.
His main love was farming.

Our barn my Dad built


What a little cutie!
About 4 yrs. old in this photo.

Our tradition to celebrate both his Birthday and Father's Day, 
was to go to Saint Michael's Portuguese Holy Spirit Festa In Livermore.



Here was our last time all together eating Sopas.

He turned 90 that year.

Dad and Cody in better times

Mom and Dad in later years.

So here's to you Dad,

Happy Birthday!

and Happy Father's Day!!

I love and miss you!
Give Mom a kiss and hug for me!

Gardening Tips and Tricks


Thought I'd jot down a few tips that you all may or may not already know. I think it's always good to review and remind ourselves each year, I know I can always use reminders!
1. In general, thinner leaved plants need more water to stay alive, thicker leaved plants need less.

2. Attract ladybugs to your garden with nectar-producing plants such as parsley, dill and fennel.

3. Change the water in a bird bath every few days to help reduce the mosquito population.


4. Rotate your crops each year to help reduce pest and disease problems, as well as correct nutrient deficiencies and excesses.

5. Native trees and plants are low maintenance; they develop natural defenses against insects, disease and they rarely need pruning or feeding.



6. Less than 2 percent of the insects in the world are harmful. Most are beneficial insects.

7. Learn what the different life-cycle stages look like for both beneficial insects and pests – you don’t want to accidentally wage war on the “good guys.”

8. Place pest repelling plants, such as garlic, next to easily infested plants.

9. Orchard Mason bees are excellent pollinators. Attract them to your garden or orchard by providing nesting blocks.


10. Botanical insecticides are derived from plants and can be more toxic than some chemicals. It's best to try a strong hose spray to aide in knocking soft-bodied pests off plants such as aphids, leafhoppers and spider mites.



11. Water in the morning to help avoid powdery mildew and other fungal diseases that are often spread by high humidity levels.



12. Use barriers against pests instead of insecticides whenever possible. Some pest barriers include floating row covers, netting, copper slug tape, protective collars, and Tanglefoot Pest Barrier.


13. Vegetables that become over-ripe are an automatic lure for some garden pests. Remove them as quickly as possible to avoid detection.

14. Diatomaceous earth makes an excellent organic insecticide – it is an abrasive white powder used to damage the cuticle, skin and joints of insects.

15. Avoid using railroad ties in or around your vegetable garden; the chemicals used to preserve the wood are now thought to be harmful.

16. New beds require plenty of compost, soil amendments and double digging for that extra kick.

17. Earthworms are extremely beneficial to the soil and plants, increasing air space in the soil and leaving behind worm castings. Do everything you can to encourage worms in your soil.


18. Keep dirt off lettuce and cabbage leaves by spreading a 1-2 inch layer of mulch (untreated by pesticides or fertilizers) around each plant. This also helps control weeds.

19. Pest management begins with healthy soil. It produces healthy plants, which are better able to withstand disease and insect damage.

20. Bats are a great form of natural pest control. Many in North America feed exclusively on insects and eat more than birds and bug zappers combined. A study has shown that bug zappers kill more beneficials than pests.
   

21. Sage repels cabbage moths and flea beetles.



22. Companion planting is an excellent way to improve your garden. Some plants replenish nutrients lost by another one, and some combinations effectively keep pests away.


This is just skimming the top, for more in depth look into any particular interest, the internet is full of information.

Keeping Those Bath Toys Organized! #bicmax



Keeping bath toys organized is no feat in and of itself!
They can end up anywhere and everywhere.
I remember when mine were little,
bath time was great fun for all, even me.
But some times those toys went flying,
or sat in the tub not getting put up
to dry for the next time around.


Back then there wasn't much to choose from
in the way of keeping the toys out of the way of others.
They mostly sat on the edge of the tub and
unwantedly fell in from time to time.
Letting them dry was another whole story.
I don't know how many I threw out due to mold
setting in and out of the toy :(


with 4 Super-Strength Hooked Suction Cups!
Now being a Grammy I'm faced with that prospect all over again.
Sure, not on a daily basis but on those great weekends and weeks she gets to spend with me.

OK, OK, so I bought her ALL those fun things!
I wasn't thinking of what to do with them after bath time
just during bath time! LOL

I couldn't have been contacted at a better time to review
a Bath Toy Organizer, I was so excited!
Yeh, doesn't take much for me, it's the little things ;) 


Features:

''4 extra strong hooked suction cups are included, if additional suction is needed for your tile. Otherwise they can be used to hang other bathroom accessories

Our product features high quality mesh, fast drying polyester edging, and powerful large suction cups. The bag is large enough (18in x14in) to hold all of your baby's toys. The sturdy bag also stays close to your tile and out of your way when not in use. Kids can access it easily, even with little hands. No more stepping on toys while showering!




Keep your bathroom organized and clean with a simple method that works. Putting toys away in the bath toy organizer is easy and keeps your bathroom neat. Great at showing your kids how to tidy up after themselves.

It's very versatile. Perfect as a shower caddy, for bath toys, for beauty products...the list goes on and on.
Designed in the USA and made of quality materials.''




I opened it right away, needless to say I had toys all over my tub and was anxious to get them up and out of the way.
I cleaned where I wanted the hooks to go well so they had every advantage to stay put. Let's face it, suctions cups don't have a great reputation.

I decided to place the organizer to the back of the tub up high so when I used the shower they wouldn't get wet each time. This way they actually had time to dry and would be out of the way since they wouldn't be used on a daily basis.
I was pretty amazed at how large the organizer was!
It dwarfs the amount of bath toys that I have for her.
Guess I need to go out and get more! ;)

I am happy to say it has been up for 3 days and is still hanging!
Impressed by the suction cups, most definitely!
The toys are kept nice and dry for the next time
and out of my way during my shower.

I also love that I have 2 extra hooks that larger toys or whatever else needs a place of it's own can hang on :)
