A wonderful way to extend the life of
your gloves, while keeping dirt from
getting under your nails. Purchase
rubber finger page turner tips from
your local office supply store. Buy
several sizes and put them on your
fingers. Then slide your garden
gloves over your hands with tips
on each finger and you have now
created the greatest gloves ever.
SAVE THOSE EGG SHELLS
Save the egg shells and when they are
dried out, crush them but don’t make
powder (you need tiny little pieces
of egg shells). Use them as a bug
deterrent. About 2 to 3 inches form
the main stack of the plant make a
circle of egg shells, about an inch wide.
Poor little crawling bugs hate to walk
on something that will cut their little
bitty feet. Try it! It really works!
When the grandchildren were little,
we had a pumpkin patch and the
kids lightly carved their names into
the pumpkin skin and as the
pumpkins grew, their names
grew to maturity.
