Spring into Small Projects
Last year was the never-ending-constant-hatching-seriously-icky mosquito paradise environment in my rain barrels & I resolved to end it this year & early in the season.
I just purchased some window screening - which, we all know, keeps mosquitoes out of the house - cut it to cover over the wide open, very full rain barrels & we - for complete lack of proper planning - duct taped it to the barrels... Now, we did at least think to use UV resistant/outdoor duct tape, so it should last at least a year... but man, they are U-gly!
I do have high hopes of (eventually) putting some fencing around these & growing some sort of vine up the fence - sweet peas? beans? clematis? maybe something that is green year-round??
Small project #1 done!
