Preserving herbs

By |

There are a few tricks but this is definitely the best!

Buying herbs from the store is quite expensive and they will probably not be as fresh as the ones you are growing yourself. Growing is just step one – step two is keeping them fresh once you cut them off. It’s simple: just put an ice cube tray filled with water and self-grown herbs into your freezer – frozen herbs will last for at least 6 months. As soon as you want to use them, just throw an ice cube into whatever you are cooking.

Diapers

Over a certain amount of time unused soil is very likely to become dry – unless you’re using diapers. Just cut their elastic leg edges off and put them in your pots with the absorbent side up. They will keep your soil moist for days!

Eggshells

By |Tags: |

Eggshells are great for gardening and this is mainly for two reasons. First of all, once they start decomposing they supply your soil with calcium which works kind of similiar to a natural fertilizer. Second of all, they keep pesky insects from damaging your plants. All you have to do is wash the eggshells with water, dry them, crush them a little bit and spread them like a circle around the plant. An easy yet very effective trick!
