HOME & FAMILY CARE TIP:
Rid your family pet naturally of ticks and fleas. Instead of using harsh tick and flea powder, rub food-grade diatomaceous earth into the fur of your cats and dogs. Apply outdoors, as dogs usually try to shake off the powdery dust afterwards.
GARDEN AND NATURE TIP:
Liquid Fertilizer. Add egg shells, banana peels and coffee and tea grounds to a sealable container with a little water. After a day or two, put contents in the blender and liquefy. Water plants that thrive in acidic soil: tomatoes, azaleas, rhododendron, camelias, and roses.
FOOD & NUTRITION TIP:
Keep asparagus and scallions fresh longer. Store upright in glass containers in the refrigerator with about one inch of water in the bottom.
