Mosquitoes are among the biggest nuisance of monsoon that ruins the outdoor fun. Bites of mosquitoes are extremely itchy as well as spread diseases such as malaria. People use mosquito coils, mosquito repellent creams, electronic mosquito repellents and herbal mosquito lotions to keep mosquitoes at a bay. Some people are allergic to these things and get nasal cavity, skin and throat problems. People also use chemicals to control mosquitoes which cause bad effect to health and environment.

Rainbow Eucalyptus is one of Nature’s absolutely coolest trees showing off a true rainbow of colors. This tree is the only species of eucalyptus that grows in the northern hemisphere and is normally grown for its pulpwood, used to create white paper. But why does it look like it’s been painted? The secret behind the Rainbow Eucalyptus is actually pretty simple: the trees shed multiple patches of bark every year, but not at the same time. As the patches are gone, the green inner bark is exposed, and as it matures it turns bluish, then orange, purple and maroon. This creates the rainbow effect that makes these trees so incredible.
Watching your garden-fresh herb supply go from healthy bunches to picked-over, withering stalks can be one of the most depressing parts of autumn.

Edit Edited by Dvortygirl, Maluniu, Filigree Peahen, Travis Derouin and 21 others Growing your own oak trees from acorns is easy and is a great way to produce strong, healthy specimens to add back into your garden.

This activity is an ideal one to begin in the early fall (autumn). Edit Steps
So... Part 2, the continuation! I was so excited. We got up, not quite so bright and early the next day, being sure to sleep in and have a mega breakfast, and K and I met up with L, got geared up in our rain gear, and set off for a 2 hour hike through this stunningly beautiful property. Here are the two masters, L and K. Click for larger image We started off with a stop in their new shed, which they had built themselves, as a team.

Vegetables are classed as either warm- or cool-season, depending on the weather they need for best growth. Warm-season veggies require both warm soil and high temperatures (with a little cooling at night) to grow steadily and produce crops. They include traditional summer crops such as snap beans, corn, cucumbers, melons, peppers, tomatoes, and squash. “Winter” squashes such as acorn, hubbard, and banana are actually warm season crops: the name refers not to the planting season, but to the fact that they can be stored for winter consumption.
