Fresh garlic is a kitchen staple! Did you know that garlic is one of the easiest plants to grow in a garden? A single clove of garlic will produce a beautiful head of garlic. Growing garlic should be one of the first plants every new gardener should tries because it is easy and produces a generous harvest.
Plant lemongrass and rosemary in pots, containers or in flower beds on your balcony or in your garden to have a mosquito free summer! You can use them as herbs in cooking as well. Remember to brush them to release more of their fragrance before your outdoor activity.
Each time you crack an egg open, instead of tossing the shell into the trash, drop it into an open container that you keep in the fridge. When the container is full, crush the shells into small bits and sprinkle them around the base of your plants. The sharp eggshells will deter slugs, snails, and other bugs from nibbling on your garden and add a touch of calcium to the soil.
