Greenhouse bugs

Hi. I have the roly polies in my greenhouse and the like to eat the sprouts from newly planted seeds. How can i control this until the plant gets bigger. Ive tried cinnamon and a soap spray. There is also these very small 'millipedes'. I dont see them eating but they are in the dirt.

home canning

I have a zucchini relish recipe that does not call for a hot water bath or boiling the food before putting it in the hot jars I've used it for years and it works but now I'm seeing all other zucchini relish recipes call for boiling product prior to 10-30 hot water bath. What should I do to ensure a safe product. Have I just been lucky so far as not getting everyone sick?

Best grass for high altitude

We have a cabin in Arizona at 6000 ft. elevation. We are not always there to water frequently. What would be a good grass variety that will regenerate with the monsoon rains and survive a couple of weeks between watering?
