Hello Everyone,

     I hope this week finds everyone well. Sometimes it is easy to get focused on what is happening around us. If you to listen to the outside world, you will live fearful and worried. But, if you choose to think the way God Thinks , you can live above the stress and pressure of the world. God has promised to give us perfect peace when we keep our minds focused on Him.

     Isaiah 55:9. " As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts."

     Have a good and blessed week everyone.

         July 19 - August 4

July 29- August 1,2 -  good for above ground crops. Prepare seed beds, transplant and destroy weeds.

August 3,4 - good for root crops. Kill pest

                      Fire Ants

     Fire Ants are a very large problem in Texas. There are four kinds of Fire Ants that live here with Red Fire Ants being the most cause for concern. Imported Fire Ants spread by crawling, drifting down stream, traveling on moving vehicles or through shipments of soil from nursery or nursery stock. They are not picky. Imported Fire Ants will attack anything that disturbs their mound.

     The best time to attack fire ants is early in the morning or late in the evening. The best way to kill fire ants is a bait, they will take the poison bait back to the queen and feed it to her. When the queen dies, the colony dies. When you apply the bait, do not disturb the mound. Apply the bait and walk away. The colony should die in 3-4 days.
