Killing Aphids with Soap. HOMEMADE INSECTICIDAL SOAP CONCENTRATE 1/4 cup grated soap (I use Fels-Naptha, but Ivory or other real soap - see above - will work) 4 cups hot water Stir soap into water until dissolved. Store in a jar until ready to use. To dilute for plant use: Add 1 tsp. concentrate per 4 cups (32 oz.) of water. Pour solution into a spray bottle. This soap is a contact poison - spray directly onto the aphids. It will not harm your plants.

How to Grow Sweet Potatoes in the Front Yard
Good Info on Growing Your Own Sweet Potatoes. To cure potatoes: starting on harvest day, keep sweet potatoes at 85 to 90 degrees for 5 days. The sweet potato will grow a second skin, which is an incredibly effective seal. After curing, you can leave a sweet potato on the counter for several months without noticeable moisture loss. also see http://www.motherearthnews.com/organic-gardening/growing-sweet-potatoes-zm0z11zsto.aspx

The Secret to Long-Lasting Cut Hydrangea Blooms

The Secret to Long-Lasting Cut Hydrangea Blooms, I LOVE my dehydrated Hydrangeas, but this is nice for fresh cut flowers as well~RP~
For cut hydrangeas: No more wilted blooms with Alum (it's in the spice isle) - Re-cut the stem and immediately stick the bottom 1/2″ of the stem in Alum (this helps the stem suck water) arrange as usual. It’s easy and works!
The Secret to Long-Lasting Cut Hydrangea Blooms: To prevent that “sticky stuff” from forming on the bottom of cut stem (which prevents the cut blossoms from sucking up water), you need the secret ingredient - alum! (Find it in the spice aisle.). When you are arranging your flowers re-cut the stem and immediately stick the bottom 1/2″ of the stem in the alum, then arrange as usual. It’s easy and works! No more wilted blooms!
