Allergy stuff; I found generic Claritin a few years ago, and a spray called NasalCrom. Both have been helping me a lot. Also, there is a generic Mucinex with cough relief that has been good, too. Good luck!
I'm a real tomato fancier, that is my favorite garden plant. We also have thornless blackberries, a Concord grape vine that seems to really slow about producing any edible grapes, and one poor raspberry plant that has failed to produce anything in the 4 years it has been tended and well cared for.
We fight earwigs and other pests in the garden, last year the earwigs killed off my prize peach tree that I planted from a seed about 6 years ago, and had already had good peaches from it.
The bugs and weeds in this part of Idaho are both a real trial for serious gardeners. Some day I swear I am going to plant a weed garden and see if any veggies sudden spring up and try and take over the garden plot.
Take care James in da GRAYDAWG

as far as being mobil the summers here are much to busy for that but we feel a trip coming on . steve
the bus stopped and i got on and thats how it all began
When the weather got good everyone else around here wanted Rick's help in their gardens so we didn't get everything planted and between the slugs, birds and rabbits, we didn't harvest much-and we do have a fence. But it doesn't keep out small, young rabbits, and yes I need to put up net for the birds.
One plant is still breathing, but barely. Will probably pull it up in next few days. Other plant has one gnarly looking tomato on it that is almost full size, but still green. It is in a race to ripen before a really big freeze gets it. We have had 3 little freezes so far, and an old sheet over the plant has kept it hanging on. Poor little plant....
This year has been unbelievable, even by our normal bizarre standards. - 32 F up to + 114 temperature swing this year. Deadly tornadoes - many more than normal. Dust storms, thunderstorms, floods, and severe drought and now, damaging earthquakes. Tomorrow, the plague of frogs is due in about 3:00 pm. And the plague of locusts is scheduled for all day on Thursday.
Already planning next years garden and Pit Stop will be growing mixed Oriental Greens and Mercy gets to support the climbing tomatoes with a new trellis we're going to build.
I should be able to get at my biggest gardening pots now that it has frozen several times.
Last try a wasp got Rick on the left leg-TWICE!--underground nest and he stepped on it
When I move the pots we'll be able to turn the compost when there's a thaw.
Camper is covered now and the next thing that gets wrapped up will be my horse, I have to put his blanket on
The garden has become a family affair. One niece and one nephew don't have garden space so Auntie Lois is going to expand and share.
I got some strawbales and I'll use those for tomatoes and peppers, I've got the big planters out now so I can put tomatilloes and greens in them.
We're HOPING to build a bigger greenhouse, just have to find out the cost of the Fibreglas sheets. I found a nifty plan that looks like a little barn and will fit where my old greenhouse is now (bottom sills are rotting out and I'm afraid it'll collapse)
We have to fix the garden fence too, the dear deer have been paying us visits, even though theres not much to eat out there.
Rick drew the garden plan, now we just have to fill it in.
Too many strawberries so we have to transplant some into planters.
So if anyone drops by mid-end of June will be fed strawberries for dessert.
