Randy Lemmon's Texas fertilize, fungicide, herbacide and insecticide schedule

Diatomaceous Earth is a natural killer of many pests, both indoors and out. i have personally found it excellent for flea control. i used the food grade diatomaceous earth (can buy at a feed store) on my dog as a non-chemical flea powder, also sprinkled on her bedding, etc.

    i also use a 50/50 (or so) mix of kitty litter and diatomaceous earth to sprinkle on dog poops in the yard. helps humans avoid stepping in them, and helps dry them out for easier pick up. also can be used on any gooey remnants that your shovel missed! (if it gets wet though (like from rain, sprinklers, etc.), it loses it's effect.)

Don't throw out the water your boil your eggs in. This water contains tons of calcium that your plants will love. Just let the water cool and dump it on your plants. I also save my egg shells, rinse them out real well, smash them up then mix them with dirt and/or potting soil before planting any plants. @Debra Slack - this might interest you.
