Before and After

Gross once-white carpet

New "I hide stains" gray carpet

Furniture I sold on Craigslist

Replacement furniture

Don't you feel like the best part of all those home remodeling shows are the before and after shots? They suck you in for a full hour just so you can see how new paint, carpet and lights can make a huge difference. These are some pictures of changes I have been making around my condo. Last year, I sold all my furniture on criagslist without having any new stuff bought. After living without anything but a bed for almost a month, I replaced my couch and chair with a newer more modern look. The carpet was sooooo gross. It was here when I moved in 5 years ago and should have been replaced then. It has brought a fresh and crisp new feel to the condo. I just wish one of those HGTV shows would have done all this, then I wouldn't have had to pay for it. Bookmark and Share

Eco-friendly Control of Thrips
Poorly developed flowers, stunted plants and silvery streaks on leaves are indications thrips may be feeding on your plants. These tiny insects have file-like mouthparts they use to puncture the outer surface of leaves, stems and flowers and suck out plant sap. They are very small and difficult to detect. Hold a white piece of paper under the plant and shake. Or remove the petals of damaged flowers, place in a sealed jar with 70% alcohol and shake the jar to dislodge and detect the pests. Control is difficult and often not needed as the damage is discovered after the thrips have finished feeding. Provide the proper growing conditions and care for your plants. Avoid excess nitrogen that promotes lush succulent growth these pests prefer. And remove spent flowers that tend to harbor the insects. Manage weeds in the garden and keep thrip-susceptible plants away from weedy areas where the pest populations tend to be high. A bit more information: Beneficial insects like predatory thrips, green lacewings, minute pirate bugs and some parasitic wasps feed upon plant damaging thrips. Invite these good bugs into the garden by planting a diversity of plants and avoiding persistent pesticides. Visit the University of California IPM online for more details on this pest.
