And Homework.

Homework! (which of course, I've put off until the last day before class).

Engaging reading material:
    Pesticides: Learning about Labels.
    Pesticides: Safe Handling
    Understanding Pesticides


We've already had a couple people quit the Master Gardener's class because they thought it wasn't "organic" enough. While the recommendations are to always try non-chemical solutions first, it seems to be the theory of the WSU program (that sponsors the Master Gardener's training) that it's better to know how and when to correctly use pesticides than to ignore the issue altogether.

Damn. The class on pruning isn't until March 4. As warm as it's been, I think I need to do some pruning before then.

I must say, I agree with their approach. There are times when you need to use Hi-test... start with something natural and/or organic...

Re: The only exception........
i have found that if I bait just the irises, they aren't such a problem, they go off and eat things which i don't care about.

i bait more aggressively in the late spring and summer.
