Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil so that nothing will grow there. I use baking soda in a 6" wide area around all of the edges of my flower beds to keep the grass and weeds from growing into my beds. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. I usually do this twice a year: spring & fall.
Instead of using commercial fertilizers and plant food, why not use some scraps from your kitchen that would otherwise end up in the trash or compost bin to amend and improve your garden soil naturally? Inexpensive and easy, these are my favorite ways to get my garden ready for spring planting. Eggshells, banana peels, Epsom salts, coffee grounds.

Wall Trellis Kit - Can be a DIY. Make a trellis of any shape and put it almost anywhere. Use the silicone glue to bond a number of the anchors to a wall or window. Next, string the wire from anchor to anchor to create a frame. Finally, use the vinyl tape to support plants on the newly created trellis.
Homemade leather cleaner. 1 part white vinegar, 2 parts olive oil. Great homemade cleaner and conditioner for leather. Just mix well and spray on and then buff with a cotton cloth. Or put it directly on the cloth & then rub in. (Worked great on leather car seats) It does smell like vinegar at first but the scent will fade.
