Spring is coming and this is the 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!)

Alternative Gardening: Adding calcium for tomato plants Tomatoes need calcium to achieve their full flavor potential, and calcium is often greatly lacking in our soils. 95% of a dry eggshell is calcium carbonate. When planting your tomato plants crush up (to powder) about 4 or 5 egg shells and put them in the bottom of the hole. Then plant your tomato on top. They'll provide calcium and prevent blossom end rot

A better way to grow cilantro...my cilantro in the garden grows so fast and flowers early so I'm going to try this on the back patio garden.
How to grow cilantro - Try this method for a fast, continuous crop
A better way to grow cilantro for a fast, continuous crop Wouldn't it be nice to have fresh cilantro growing right outside your kitchen door? Whenever you wanted to fix salsa or guacamole, or a Middle Eastern yogurt sauce for your lamb kabobs, there the lacy, sweetly pungent leaves would be, ready to harvest. But if you've ever tried to grow it, you've probably noticed that cilantro yields a fast crop; plants are barely up before they try to flower and set seeds. So those tasty leaves aren't around long, especially in warm weather. More about cool-season crops To keep leaves coming, you can sow seeds every two weeks for a continuous cilantro crop. Or, even better, try the method we perfected in Sunset's test garden last year: Grow cilantro as you would mesclun. Sow seeds thickly in a wide, shallow container; then, as soon as plants are 3 to 4 inches tall and sporting a couple of cuttable leaves, use scissors to cut off some foliage for cooking as shown. Shear from a different section of the container every time, rotating the pot as you go and never letting plants in any area mature. By the time you get back to the first section harvested, new leaves will have appeared. Cilantro growing tips 1. Select a bowl-shaped container at least 18 inches wide and 8 to 10 inches deep. 2. Fill the pot with a fast-draining potting soil; mix in an organic granular fertilizer. 3. Before seeding, moisten the soil using a fine spray from the hose. Because the seeds are fairly small, mix them in a bowl with sand (3 parts sand to 1 part seed) so they'll disperse more evenly. Sow the seeds, then cover lightly with soil. 4. Gently mist the soil so as not to displace the seeds. 5. Place containers in full sun or, if you live in a hot climate, light shade. Seeds should germinate in 7 to 10 days. 6. Harvest at least weekly to keep leaves coming. Using this method, it's possible to harvest four crops of cilantro from a single pot.

the world's most perfect fertilizer + pesticide is epsom salt. This is so true- every other week- 1 gallon of water, 1 TBSP of miracle grow and 3 TBSP of epsom salt- I promise a great garden all season. My green thumb friend Jennifer posted this, it must be true!
Epsom salt is an all in one organic fertilizer AND pesticide. Use one tablespoon per gallon of water. Epsom salt is composed almost exclusively of magnesium sulfate, Epsom salt is intensely rich in minerals that are both crucial to healthy plant life. For use as a pesticide: sprinkle on and around plants rendering them foul-tasting to garden pests. *Note - adding 1 Tbsp of Miracle Grow to the mix
