Since it will not rain today after all, I will venture out into the back yard and finish up some gardening projects that weren’t completed last weekend.

The most important one is to give some TLC and some Rx to my beloved’s kaffir lime tree.

Since we’ve moved to Houston, it’s been the target of some kind of microscopic creature that mines the leaves and turns them all gnarly. And since it’s the leaves that you use for cooking…that’s not good.

But, hooray! I got some advice from a citrus tree professional last weekend and I’m going to spray the tree with this hideously expensive stuff he recommends. The nice part about it is that it’s all-natural and whatever drips off the tree can filter into the lawn and make it happy, too.

I still don’t like gardening, but I guess this is a start.

So sayeth the StickMonkey.
