Pucker Up

VinegarWeeds_Post

Weeds. My nemesis. No matter how many I pluck, a million more pop up somewhere else just to taunt me. Kind of like the gopher in Caddyshack.

Pucker up, weeds.

Well, it turns out, vinegar has become my new best friend. Not only does it unclog drains and take the sting out of bug bites – it helps win the battle of the weeds.

Just put vinegar into a spray bottle and spritz the offending plants* in driveways, sidewalks, mulch and gravel. SHAZAM! All withered up the next day.

Vinegar. For your yard and for your salad, naturally.

*Don’t overspray onto foliage you want to keep.

How Do You Like Them Apples

Ok. A show of hands who’s found a bug in their food – after taking a bite? Because of that, it’s been years since I’ve been able to stomach brussel sprouts. Luckily the worm was still in one piece.

How do you like them apples.

If you can get past the tomato worms and such, the stuff out of your own garden tastes so much better. But if you don’t have the time or space for that sort of thing – or don’t have a green thumb, your local farmers market is a great place to go for that fresh, home grown yumminess.

Organic fruits and vegetables may not look as pretty, but sure are full of flavor. When you purchase from your local farmers, you’ll know that you’re getting seasonal and tasty fruit and not mealy old apples like the ones from the chain supermarket – where you don’t know where they came from. Or know if they were picked pre-ripened, or if they’re sprayed with chemicals to keep them fresh, or how long they’ve been in transit.

In going to the farmers market not only do you support local growers sustain their business but also help ensure farms for our children in the future. If nothing else, it’s also a great place to get to know neighbors in your community.  So whenever you can, try to get locally grown produce. This way you know where it comes from – and that includes the worm.
