Beautiful pix, mudhen!!! Isn't it amazing how the houses our grandparents built will stand the test of time and last forever when the houses of today are literally cardboard and won't live to see grandkids!!?? :? The house my grandfather built in north dakota is the same way...traditional farmhouse!!! Gotta love 'em! :D

Depending on how many you have, but several ways to kill mesquite.

If you want to aerial spray them, the chemicals Remedy and Reclaim mixed does a hell of a job. Cost's roughly $30 or so an acre.

If you want to to IPT (Individual Plant Treatment) with a back pack sprayer or something, some people use straight diesel with a surfactant. Or else you could use Remedy and Reclaim and just basal treat all the trees you wanted killed. Make sure you throughly soak all the trunk about 18 inches up.

Anyway, go to this website. It tells a lot of how to "Beat Mesquite". Its a site from A&M University System. Good info. Good Luck.

You bet ya! I haven't seen a jackrabbit in about 3 years around my place. I recall some years back when I was a kid and would run them down then catch them, but now I wouldn’t mess with them (there are just not many of them now). Now as the cotton tail goes, you would see some every now and then but now they are everywhere. They are not bad enough yet to worry about eating all the vegetation thou. They say that a rabbit and a coyote go hand and hand. If the coyote pop. is up then the rabbit pop. is down. I don’t know if this is true are not thou. Another saying is that a rabbit has something like a seven year gen. cycle.

We also have an overabundance of toads. There are baby toads bouncing around everywhere. When my sister was about three, she had been in the house for a couple hours after playing outside. My mom asked her what she had in her pocket. Her reply, "a baby frog." Kinda took Mom by surprise. :)
