The benefits of WOOD ASH in the garden. Good to know!
Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier
BEST Weed Spray. I made 3 gallons for around $4.00 last year after seeing a pin. Worked better than Round Up killed the weeds/stray grass on first application. One gallon of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, 1/2 c table salt, 1 tsp Dawn. Mix and pour into a smaller spray bottle. (you can purchase 3 gallon size Apple Cider Vinegar in the canning section of a good hardware store - cheap!)
DIY Drip Bottle Irrigation - I LOVE this idea for so many reasons: 1.) It uses bottles I already have around the house 2.) It gets the water to where my plants need it most - the roots 3.) I can add plant food and/or fertilizer directly to the water on an as needed basis and 4.) I spend less time in the garden actually watering!
