I thought that I would love living in the country, growing our food pretty much for free and having no neighbors. Yes, you can find me out in the garden in my pjs... until I found out about the ticks. The good thing though is that I haven't seen even one snake so far and summer is pretty much half over! The garden is looking pretty good and we have more raspberries than the three of us can eat... now if I could just find something that would take care of the ticks, I was be a very happy gardener!!
