I’m happy to report that the ants are gone. I’m not sure if it was the Petite or the toxic chemicals that we sprayed all over the place, but in any case, the kitchen is mine again. I celebrated by baking a batch of mean banana spice muffins. They’ve disappeared much faster than the ants did.
Today, tired of waiting for my own to arrive, I’m heading to Crushpad to play with some other people’s grapes. Check back later for a report and some photos of yours truly learning to sort, crush and press and generally getting covered in grape juice.
