Saturday Afternoon


I can turn some of my attention to my garden beds now that I’m getting caught up with my outside chores.  It doesn’t look like much but just give it a couple more weeks and most of my beds will be getting very green.  I had to do a little scrambling this afternoon because I lost my organic fungicide recipe that I used last year.  It worked well last year for me.  Well, at least I think it worked well.  I’m sure someone will think I am completely off base or out of my mind but that wouldn’t be the first time that someone thought that of me nor do I suppose it will be the last time.  The recipe that I found was:

  • 1 gallon fresh water
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons organic dish soap

No, I haven’t converted it to metric nor do I have a conversion; you’ll have to do it all on your onesy.  Now I just have to find a good organic insecticide recipe.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

  1. Have you tried planting mint for insecticide? It supposedly keeps all bugs away (but I’m talking perimeter, not just a little patch). Or get an opossum to come live in your yard. Nature’s vacuum cleaners you know, and they love bugs, ☺
