One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Speee-i-ders!

I put an S.O.S. out to my mother.  We are badly in need of some hedge apples.  The spiders are everywhere.  In the kitchen, on the counter, in the bathtub, in the shower. Ugh. Here my son rescued us from this man eating female that was on my kitchen floor (shudder).

The other day, while picking more tomatoes, I almost got my head into a orb weaver web.  That spider was ginormous!  Ugly too (shivers).  I went back out to take a photo, but it was gone, and no matter what I moved in the garden, it didn't come back out for it's photo shoot.

Oh no! My family would be terrorized by all of those spiders! They don't bother me too much. But, I have been devoured by mosquito's this year and they are still getting me. Even in the house! My youngest daughter and I seem to attract them while my husband gets nary a bite.

Ick !

don't like spiders. I hear that horse apples (or hedge apples, depending on where you're from) work pretty well to deter bugs...didn't know about spiders though.

We have some in our yard...I should bring some in the house!
