Well all our garden was tidy for the beginning of the year and 2 days ago hubby put acid on the slabs, brushed it in and left it for 10mins then jet blasted them off, we couldn't believe the dirt build up over winter, mind you it came off easier than it as before.

Then he did the front slabs under the window on the front garden.

That would only work if you want him to move to rainy seattle lol. We have a big family and are also planting for our neighbors family as well. Both of us love fresh produce. Hence the 20 tomato plants....

What you doing in your garden for 2020?

Same thing I do all year round, trying to kill ants. Anyone got any ideas on how I can do it safely?

I have tried vinegar and borax.

I won't use ant powders because they kill other insects and wash into the stormwater drains and kill the frogs and fish. The stuff also blows around everywhere due to the wind here.

We've got them out already, i've not got a clue besides pure bleach which i run along the outside of the building. I've just had my hubby put Nippon ant powder through the top of the heaves it kills wasps after 2 doses.

i have 24 tomato plants and my family doesn’t even like tomatoes.
i give them away to friends and relatives, but the bulk of them will be grown for the chickens.

@Colin_T we use diatomaceous earth. It would kill other insects as well but if you sprinkle it just on the ant nest a couple times a week it should take care of it
