This is the story of our adventures -- every day and extraordinary; our dreams -- tiny and grand; our gardens -- ornamental and sustaining; this is the story of our journey.  We are a family of four living a mindful, simple life here in Los Angeles County.  We are green, conscious, and forward thinking.  We keep an eye on the past because some of the best things have already been done and bear repeating.  Walk and talk with us, have a glass of wine, taste a peach or a tomato, blow some bubbles and watch them drift up over the canyon ridge.  Enjoy!

Cinnamon. That is our latest line of defense.

LOL!! Well good luck with it! :) When I tried it I just ended up with the same amount of ants AND a mess haha.. they trudged right through it. Dang it!

I have the mess too! BUT they won't trudge through it. So far they have gone around, but not through. If I could find a way to put it around the entire perimeter it MIGHT work.

I'm convinced it's water they are after.
