    No, I don't have either plant. Silverfish are very common here in FL and look nothing like roaches to me either! I will probably try the cucumber trick so I don't have to worry about my toddler...

    We bake pretty frequently year round, but I don't notice an increase in spring, so I am surprised you all do. Our baking frequency increases in fall.

    Silverfish

    How do you get rid of silverfish? We don't have a horrible infestation, but I see them inside the house pretty regularly and other than just killing one at a time, don't know what to do about them.

    You can look in hardware stores that carry antique hardware, get doorknobs off old doors that aren't in use, and look online. Maybe you can find something like that on eBay.

    Mazda 5

    Instead of getting a regular minivan, we are now thinking we will buy a Mazda 5--the mini-minivan. We figure it will work great for 2 kids but will also work for 3 if we decide to have another.

    That sounds really nice, monnie! It's a beautiful day here so we'll probably be spending most of it outside, enjoying the new spring. I'm still waiting for my husband to finish making breakfast ;)

    I would use manure or compost instead of fertilizer. You get the same effect but it's better for the Earth. I would do it once a year as part of your spring work.

    We have not yet started saving for our child's education. We have a great deal of debt we need to pay down first and then we will hopefully be able to make up for lost time.

    I'm going to try this too! It's kinder to the earth and less expensive than the fire ant killer I usually buy in the store. I detest fire ants and am dealing with a huge bite on my foot now.

    How are the spring chores coming? We are able to keep up during the winter so that helps us, but I know many of you have much bigger jobs in the spring after the snow melts.
