1.) If you have some of these sitting around....
Then you need one of these.
This is a home made gnat catcher. All you need is:
-a pint jar or glass or vase (something small)
-apple cider vinegar
-piece of paper
Place a small amount of liquid in the bottom of the jar. I use 2 parts vinegar to 1 part water.
Take your paper and make a cone shape. Make sure the hole is large enough for them to crawl into but small enough not to escape. Take the overlapping edges and trim your paper. I set my jar in the window sill near my produce. This works wonderfully!
2.) If you have plants that should look like this but are having a hard time coming out of a dry spell (even though you water every day). Then try this trick:
My Grandma Angle taught me to reach for the Epson Salts. I know, it sounds crazy...but it works.
I put about 1/3 c. Epson Salt into the bottom of a watering can. Fill the can with water and douse the plant with the mixture. You will be amazed what it will do for your plant in just a few short days.
Hope you enjoy these 2 helpful hints. :)
