Simple pleasures of life .........
Just some tips for you garden lovers out there :)
When starting your garden seedlings indoors, plant the seeds in egg shell halves. Simply crack the shells around the roots of your plants & transplant them outdoors--the shell is a natural fertilizer!
Take four or five empty eggshells and put in 4 cups of water. Let stand for 24 hours. Water the plants with this mixture. It will help revive sick house plants.
Nicotine Spray: To help control caterpillars, aphids and destructive worms. Take one handful of tobacco and place in 1 gallon of water. Mix and let stand 24 hours. Dilute the solution to the color of weak tea. Do not spray on tomato, pepper, eggplant or any other plants that are members of the Solanaceous family, since nicotine can kill them.
Have a wonerful day...........
