Get Inspired: Garden!

GREAT gardening article:

Today.com, “Gardening 101: Everything you need to know to plant a thriving garden” (posted 3/18/16)

There is so much information in this article (how to, choosing plants, tools), but these natural pest elimination  recipes are great – make your own:

Insect repellent: In a large pot, mix two heads of crushed garlic, 3 cups of crushed mint leaves, 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper and 12 cups of water, and bring to a boil. Let the mixture sit overnight and then strain it into a couple of spray bottles, adding a few squirts of dish soap to each. This should yield 12 cups of liquid.

Weed killer: This is as easy as filling a spray bottle with white vinegar and adding a teaspoon of dish soap. Be careful when spraying this solution because it can kill your plants too.

If you love to garden … or … need some encouragement, this is the place to be!
