So with summer halfway through I've provided some great links to keep your kids busy
And some projects for space saving gardens
But what about those pesky bugs and weeds? Here are a few homemade/DIY projects for you....

You know I love reusing wine bottles. Did you know you can use them as a fly trap? Love this idea... expect for that bit about "the last few drops of wine", I don't think there are usually any drops left in my bottles. ;)
Simply Dixon ~ Wine Bottle Fruit Fly Trap
Kill all those weeds with some of your typical household items.
Full of Great Ideas ~ Nature Weed Killer
This one requires you to search for a few ingredients you may not have on hand but definitely worth it so you're not spraying down with a bunch of chemicals.
Surviving the Stores ~
Homemade Mosquito Repellent
Martha offers up several idea for dealing with those pesky pests.
Martha Stewart ~ Dealing with Pests
