Stop Honeysuckle in Pike County

Over just the last 4 years, I have noticed that Honeysuckle has really taken hold in Pike County. I think I am going to blame it on people like me, who live in St. Louis and have farms up in Pike County. Someone must have brought up some plants for their farm….and the birds did the rest who dined on the berries.

It is important that we get rid of this invasive species before all of our wood are choked with them. The good news is that it is the last thing to lose leaves and the first to get them. Someone told me that you can paint the trunks, after you cut them down, with white vinegar.  There are strong things that you can find at the hardware store that you paint on trunks after you cut something down.  I think a nice herd of goats can also do the trick.

Farm Living!

Over the weekend I had a group out to our farm to enjoy the lovely weather, each other's company and great food/drink. I don't have very much time to do overnights at our farm, so this is a treat for me. It also keeps me in tune with how the farm serves guests. My friends gently encouraged me to look into hooking up to County Water which runs in front of our property. We currently have well water that is infused with sulfur. I am a little hesitant to make the change since the smell of our water is rich with memories. What will come next?  Central heat and AC? A TV? More than 1 bathroom? A dishwasher? A disposal? Internet? If I make it too comfortable, people may want to stay longer! I actually used our out-house this morning….a two-holer!
