Off to the Craftsman's Classic Spring Show ~ Garden Tip #6

This is the last post I will be doing for a few days, I am off to the "Craftsman's Classic Spring Show" in Greensboro, North Carolina. The show dates are April 3rd - 5th and I am hoping it will be a great show! The show in Richmond was somewhat slow, but given the economy it was to be expected. I am just hoping this will be a better one! The promoters of this show are wonderful, do advertising on TV, Radio, in the newspapers and of course, via email. So everyone please wish me luck!
Okay, here is Garden Tip #6 and it's about Lawn Preparation ~ another this includes another item you would never think to use for this particular function, but besides good for aching and soaking, plus a laxative (grandma used to use this), read on to find out what it is.
If you want a happy and healthy lawn, you have to give it some relief from pollution, (this is where the surprise ingredient) comes into play! So do this ~ apply lime, the pelletized type if possible, gypsum and here's the surprise ~ Epsom Salts, just as early the spring as possible. Use a hand-held broadcast type spreader. But remember this please ~ do not, however apply any lawn preparation mixture more than two (2) weeks before fertilizing your lawn!
Here is what you will need and again, remember it will do a 2500 SF lawn
50 lb. bag of lime (again pellitized if available, it's much easier to use than the other)
50 lbs. gypsum
2 lbs. Epsom Salts (you should be able to find this at your local drug store ~ ha, this has many other uses for the garden I will be talking about as the posts continue.
Your lawn will love you and you will love how your lawn looks if you follow the tips I have been posting daily! Put your home's best foot forward with a shiny, squeaky clean, green lawn which is what you will have using these mixtures and tonics I am posting. I am going to take a picture of my lawn, with a before and after shot and will post it in the next couple of weeks, after the effects of using these tonics and mixtures work their magic!
I will post about the Craftsman's Classic Spring Show in Greensboro when I return, in the meantime, hope each of you have a wonderful "green, natural and healthy" week!
Oh, I almost forgot, don't know how I could, visit my website, I am having a 20% off Sale on all the beautiful Vintage Chenille Yummy Confections in my bakeshop! The sale will run thru April, just in time for Easter and Mother's Day! It's the perfect " calorie free" gift for Mom!

Mimi's Rose Sale & Garden Tip #5 Pre-Emerge Weed Control for your Lawn

Now is the time to get rid of all those weeds in your yard, like crabgrass and any other unsitely weed, even though it's green, get rid of them using this Tonic! Do this as soon as possible in the spring, and apply any pre-emerge weed control Before 12 Noon and water with your 20 gal. hose-end sprayer. Remember this tonic recipe will cover a 2500 sf lawn. The following tonic will "Shine Up" your Landscape!

Please remember to use the 20 gal. hose-end sprayer you marked with the word "Warning" on it in red with nail polish and use this sprayer for insect or weed control only! If you didn't do this, then read this post and follow the directions please!

Here's the Pre-Emerge Weed Control Tonic ~ again you aren't going to believe how simple it is and what's in it ~ so here's the "recipe". This will really "Zing" the weeds!

Pre-Emerge Weed Control Tonic for Your Lawn:
1 Cup liquid dish soap or children's shampoo (this removes the seed shell protection from the weeds)
1 Cup of Hydrogen Perioxide
2 tbsp. Instant Tea
You can also add your favorite liquid pre-emerge control to this tonic.

If you prefer to use "dry" pre-emerge controls, you can add 1 Cup of "Dry Laundry" detergent to the purchased "dry" pre-emerge controls. This will also remove "seed shell" protection from the unsitely weeds in your lawn!

Again, apply this with the 20 gal. hose-end sprayer, marked with the word "Warning"before 12 Noon.

Also, just an update on a Sale I am having on my website ~ all the Vintage Yummy Confections Bakery Items are on sale now and will run thru the Month of April, 20% OFF. Many are priced under $10.00! These are the prettiest cupcakes, cakes and tea cakes you will find anywhere on the web. Here is a previous post about these yummy bakery items! Go look at the menu when you have a minute. Each item is on sale 20% off the regular price. There are lots of "freshly baked" goodies, they are truly the perfect "Eye Candy" and would make a wonderful gift for Easter or Mother's Day!

I hope everyone is enjoying the Garden Tips and will find them helpful and useful! I love sharing this kind of information with everyone. Watch for another tip on Lawn care tomorrow!

Have a wonderful day!

Anything Pink Sale at Mimi's Rose ~ Insect Prevention for your Lawn

Here's the next in a series of posts on lawn care, gardening and just general things you can do in these areas to ensure everything is pest free and beautiful.

Today's post is about how to control bugs in your lawn. Yes, every lawn has bugs. To debug and disease-proof your lawn there are two tonics to help you control insects. So read on about how to get rid of them, again using things which are readily available in your home, or easily purchased at the grocery store!

You must do this before anything else ~ read and heed this please:
Take a 20 gal. hose-end sprayer and pain the word "Warning" in red on the jar with red nail polish. Then add an orange golf ball (it's like an agitator and use this sprayer only to apply the pest or insect control at their recommended rate, the tonic recipe is below!

To debug and disease- proof your lawn, before you apply any chemical insect control, mix this tonic in your 20 gal. hose-end sprayer. Then followup within one hour, with an application of Dursban or Diazinon at the recommend rate.

1 cup of Fels Naptha Soap Solution*
1 cup chewing tobacco juice**
1 cup antiseptic mouthwash

*How to make the Fels Naptha Soap Solution:
Shave 1" of the Fels Naptha Bar Soap into an old nylon stocking and place into a gallon of boiling hot water, along with 4 oz. of children's shampoo or liquid dish detergent, remember don't use an antibacterial dish detergent, use the inexpensive kind. You can save what you don't use, because there are many more mixtures or tonics you can use this for and will find in other posts later. Here is a link where you can purchase Fels Naptha Soap, if you can't find it at your grocery store: http://www.soapsgonebuy.com/Fels_Naptha_Soap_p/dial1001.htm Here is another link for more great uses for this soap. I remember my grandmother always having and using this soap! http://www.soapsgonebuy.com/category_s/8.htm This soap is great for many things, even Poison Ivy Control. This link tells you about Fels Naptha and the many uses it has!

Before you apply any chemical insect control, mix the "Insect Control Tonic" recipe below in your 20 gal. hose-end sprayer and apply after 7 PM.

**How to make the Insect Control Tonic:
1 cup liquid dish soap
1/2 chewing tobaco juice
2 tbsp. Witch Hazel
4. tbsp. Instant Tea

IMPORTANT***** In recent years soap manufacturers have added degreasers and antibacterial ingredients to their products. These are VERY harmful to your plants and most likely will burn or kill them. When a home gardening technique calls for liquid dish soap be very careful that you use only Ivory or Fels Naptha Solution. You can also use the original liquid lemon type detergent which has no additives, just be careful that it does not contain a degreaser or is antibacterial.

Tomorrow's post will be about 'Weed Control" for your Lawn, along with another tonic to use! Stay tuned for more!

Don't forget about my "Anything Pink Sale" at my website, which ends tonight at 12 Midnight, EST. Looking for pretty pink things, check out my website for some pretty pink things like gorgeous fabrics with roses, Easter Bunnies, yummy chenille cupcakes and more!

Have a Great Sunday, thanks for stopping by my blog, hope these garden tips will help beautify your yard!

Mimi's Rose Garden Tip Junkee Tip #3

Here are some great lawn care tips, things you might never think of:
1. Wear golf shoes when working in your yard or garden
2. Water before 2 PM, between 5 AM and 8 AM is best
3. Pick all the grass clippings and use as mulch for your garden
4. Apply your weed controls between 1 PM and 3 PM on a bright, sunny and non-windy day
5. Apply any disease controls after 7 PM
6. Mow after 7PM for both you and your lawn's comfort and health
7. Make sure you mow only with a very sharp blade (might want to buy a few extra blades)
8. Make sure to hose down your lawnmower after you are done

Okay, now for some great fertilizing, snack and all-season tonic recipes!

In the spring, use this fertilizer recipe remembering this will do a 2500 sf. lawn

3 lbs. of Epsom Salts per 2500 square ft bag
50 lbs. of your favorite dry lawn food ( apply this at half of the recommended rate)
use a hand held spreader on the medium setting.

The Snack Tonic:
It's an instant snack which will get your lawn up and growing in the spring and the fall, which is when you need aggressive roost action and thatch breakdown. Mix the following ingredients in a 20 gal. hose end sprayer and apply after your first application of dry lawn food in spring and after your last application in the fall.
1 Can Beer (doesn't matter what kind)
1 cup liquid dish soap or baby shampoo
then fill the balance 20 gal. hose end sprayer with ammonia

The All-Season Tonic:
After applying your "Snack Tonic", every 3 weeks, early in the morning, within two days of mowing your lawn, feed everthing in your garden with this "All Season Tonic", again mixed in your 20 gal hose-end sprayer:
1 Can Beer
1 cup Ammonia
1/2 cup liquid dish soap
1/2 cup Liquid Lawn Food
1/2 cup of molasses or corn syrup (yes, you are reading this correctly)

Make sure to clean your sprayer really well, the molasses or corn syrup may clog up your nozzle on the sprayer, so take extra care to clean properly after each use.

I will continue to post more great Snacks, Tonics and mixtures on a daily basis for your gardening pleasure and health!

Mimi's Rose Gardening Tip #2 ~ Natural Insect Control

Okay, here's the best recipe for insect control for all of your flowers, including those beautiful roses we talked about yesterday.

I can guarantee you the bugs won't be happy with this mixture! Add it to a quart of water and spray directly onto the foliage:

5 Drops of Liquid Dish Detergent (not dishwashing detergent please)
5 drops of chewing tobacco juice (recipe below) ~ see there are good uses for tobacco!
2 drops of antiseptic mouthwash (Listerine - brown or original )
1/2 tsp of Thuricide Bacillus Thuringiensis, also called "BT" ~ this is a bonide
Organic spore which attacks insect larvae. Great for organic growers. Works for soil grown plants, so it's family and environmentally safe!

Here is the recipe you will need for the "Chewing Tobacco Juice":

To make this "juice" place 3 fingers of chewing tobacco in an old nylon stocking and stock in a gallon of hot water until the mixture is dark brown.

Note: You should use a separate 20 gallon hose-end sprayer and put the word "warning" on the jar with red marker or nail polish, then put an orange golf ball in there, this will work as an agitator and use this sprayer for applying pest controls only, don't use it for any other applications at all, only for "Insect Control" for any applications, i.e., lawn, flowers, gardens, etc.

You should be able to find Thuricide Bacillus Thuringiensis, also called "BT" at your local Home Garden Center, if not you can order it as I did from this website, Master Gardening, it comes in a concentrate form. As with any and all herbicides, the smaller the size the better, and store in a safe location away from your kids and any other inquisitive members of your family.

What's the tip for the day on Saturday?? Weed Control for your lawn! The ingredients will surprise you and cost a fraction of what the "weed & feed" bagged items from your local Home and Garden Center do! You will be amazed what the ingredients are to control weeds in your lawn!

Again, please share your comments, recipes you may have for "Natural or Organic Gardening" with us here!

Have a wonderful weekend. The next post will be on Saturday, just in time for the warm weather and help to get you started with beautifying your garden and lawn!
Don't forget about Friday Flea Market ~ Anything with pink on my website is 20% off and will end on Sunday, March 29th at 12 Midnight EST!

Gardening Tips for Beautiful Roses!

I have this wonderful book, which I have been looking for for months and finally found it! It has great gardening tips, which I am going to start sharing with you, especially since many of us will be planting gardens this year!

This post will be about Roses, all colors and kinds! So here is some great information on how to have the most beautiful and healthy roses without tons of work! I love them, but don't want to be a slave to them!

The secret to beautiful roses during the growing season ~ keep your roses clean, well trimmed and fed regularly. When purchasing roses look for healthy rose bushes, if they are packaged, make sure the buds are not dried out, the sprouts aren't long and yellow, and lastly the top wood isn't black or brown!

When you select a location for your roses, it should be a sunny location. The soil should be light, crumbly and rich with leaves, peat moss, cow manure and other organic matter.

If your soil is clay or hard, add 3-4 handful of gypsum to the sides and bottom of the hole. Also add 2 Cups of Epsom Salts sprinkled dry on the soil each spring. In the bottom of each hole, add a handful of Epsom Salts and bone meal whenever you plant a rose!

Plant your roses per the instructions which come with them, water them well! Then use this "Special Start Up Meal". You will be surprised what the ingredients are and many of them are already in your home. I try to use natural items when gardening, and resort only to chemicals when I have to!

1 tsp. Whiskey
1 tbsp. Liquid Dish Soap
1 tbsp. Hydrogen Peroxide
1 tsp Vitamin B-1
add this to 1/2 gallon of warm tea water

Feeding is very important and should be fed every 3 weeks because they work so hard to continuously bloom and produce large thick stems to produce the large abundant blooms you will have, if you follow these procedures! After you have fed the "Start Up Meal", three weeks later, feed this "meal"
15-30-15 Liquid Fertilizer mixed in a solution of weak instant tea
1 ounce of Liquid Dish Soap to each gallon of water

The third "meal" consists of these ingredients and are added to a gallon of Warm Water:

1\2 ounce of Liquid Fish Fertilizer
2 tbsp. instant tea
1 tsp. saltpeper
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. iron
1 oz. dry red wine

Each rose gets a Quart.

If you follow these instructions, you are sure to have the most beautiful roses on the block!

Check back tomorrow for Gardening Tips for Insect Control for Roses! I will be posting on a daily basis, since many of us will be planting our own vegetable gardens this year and will share some great information on how to do it "naturally"!

Let me know how your roses are coming along! If you have any ideas for natural gardening you want to share, please post them here!
Watch for more "Gardening Tip Junquee" posts from Mimi!

Today is the Day to Support Our Troops!

Thank you for stopping by today in honor of our troops, please be so kind as to leave a comment, so our troops will be able to read the lovely comments and thank you from each of you! This is what this post is all about, "Thanking Our Troops"!
It's finally here ~ I have been doing a lot of research on organizations, websites and government websites where you can find out all kinds of information on ways to "Support Our Troops"!

I found this wonderful poem which was written by Ms. Francine Pucillo and wanted to share it with you! Please visit her website, she has written some beautiful poems!!

Prayers now rise to heaven
For all in life who serve
Battles for their country
As freedom is preserved

Each one of you our heroes
Who sacrifice each day
Life and soul with dignity
Such courage you display

Hearts are always with you
In any place you dwell
Saluting you with honor
With love unparalleled

Each day a special blessing
Upon those we call "our brave"
Our countries greatest freedom
With memories engraved

Thank you for this honor
You give with pride each day
Those of all our "seasons"
Will never fade away

For each of you our promise
Of all our freedom saved
Each battleground now sacred
By footsteps that were paved.

Ms. Francine Pucillo©2003 Please visit her website for more beautiful poems

I have been in contact with my niece Megan, and was hoping to have a picture to post for this event, but unfortunately they are not allowed to take pictures ~ so I will try to describe this very special young lady to everyone ~ she is about 5"3", dark brown hair and big beautiful brown eyes with a slender build and a big heart! I remember when she was little, she would look at you with those "big brown eyes" and my heart would melt. Then other times when she may have done something she was not supposed to and knew it, she would "cut" those big brown eyes at you, knowing she was in "trouble", but she was and will always be my "other daughter" and I am hoping each of you will find it in your heart to let her know how much we all appreciate what she and her fellow troops are sacrificing for us.

I think the poem states exactly how I feel and I am hoping each of you feel the same! Doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with the war, it's about supporting each and every Soldier, Marine, Navy or Air Force personnel who truly give of their lives on a daily basis, so we can enjoy freedom and safety in the United States of America! My hat is off to the Troops and to each of you, and for that I say "Thank You"!

I have also found out one of the most requested items is a AT&T International Phone Card ~ make sure they are for calls from the Middle East to the United States of America.

Other items which are high on the list are:

Pre sweetened powdered drink mixes ( Crystal Lite, Gatorade, KoolAid…)
Hot Chocolate mix in single serve packets
Coffee ( ground, vacuum pak or small cans
Beef Jerky ( small packages)
Foot Powder (Gold Bond etc)
Eye Drops (for desert environment)
Lip Balm ( Blistex, Carmex, Chapstick etc.)

These items are in addition to the ones I put in the post when I announced this event.

Here is Meggie's address where you can either email or send a "care package" if you like. She is aware of this event and asked me to tell everyone thank you for showing your support and truly appreciates anything you would send, including an email. I know she would love to hear from you!

PFC Megan Donnelly
47th CSH
COB Speicher
TF Tikrit
APO AE 09393

email: redangel539@yahoo.com she loved to hear from you!

You can also email any troop, even if you don't know them at this addy, thanking them ~

I know at times, I don't hear back from her for days, and it's because of the email system they have! At first, I must tell you, I was worried because I didn't hear from her and of course, thought the worst. But she is doing good, trying to adjust to being in a desert or "Sand Box" as it is referred to by others.
I am sending her a gorgeous chenille quilt, some Puffs Tissues with Lotion, candy, toiletry items and a few other things (which I won't mention, because I am not sure if she will be able to read the post or not), so I want some of the items to be a surprise! My box will be going out on Monday and am hoping it will arrive in time for Easter!

I have found some valuable information on shipping from USPS:

Before you send a letter or package to one of our troops overseas, make sure you’re aware of certain restrictions. Every country has customs regulations regarding incoming mail. Although there are specific restrictions for each five-digit Military Post Office ZIP Code™ (APO/FPO), generally, the following are prohibited in the region of Operation Iraqi Freedom:
Obscene articles (prints, paintings, cards, films, videotapes, etc).
Any matter depicting nude or seminude persons, pornographic or sexual items, or nonauthorized political materials.
Bulk quantities of religious materials contrary to the Islamic faith. Items for the personal use of the addressee are permissible.
Pork or pork by-products.
For packages, print on one side only with the recipient’s address in the lower right portion.

Use the service member’s full name. The Department of Defense cancelled the Any Service Member program so mail must be addressed to someone specific.
Include the unit and APO/FPO (Air/Army Post Office or Fleet Post Office) address with the nine-digit ZIP Code™ (if one is assigned).
Click-N-Ship® customers should be advised that the Postal Service and the Military will continue to add and update valid APO/FPO addresses for your online labels.
Include a return address.
For packages, print on one side only with the recipient’s address in the lower right portion or print a postage-paid label online with
Click-N-Ship®. (Please note that ZIP Codes 093XX and 964XX are currently unavailable for electronic labels. We apologize for the inconvenience.)

Tips on Packaging from USPS Website:
There are certain factors to consider when sending packages to our troops overseas. To make sure package contents arrive in good shape, take these into consideration.

Extreme Temperatures: Desert temperatures typically exceed 100 degrees.

The Box: Select a strong box with room for cushioning. On recycled boxes, cover all previous labels and markings with a heavy black marker or adhesive labels.

Cushioning: Cushion contents with Styrofoam or bubble wrap to keep items from shifting. We recommend fragile items be double boxed, with cushioning inside and between the boxes to absorb shock.

Batteries: Battery powered items will sometimes get turned on during shipment. Remove and wrap the batteries separately.

Sealing: Tape the opening of the box and reinforce all seams with 2 inch wide tape. Use clear or brown packaging tape, reinforced packing tape or paper tape. Do not use cord, string or twine.

Include a card describing the contents: Improperly wrapped packages can fall apart during shipment. Including a card inside, listing the sender’s and recipient’s addresses plus a description of the contents, helps in collecting the items. Here is a picture of the box you can get from the Post Office, it will save you on shipping, it's approximately $2.00 less expensive than the regular flat rate large box and also has a Logo on it which says "Support American Troops"! Here's a picture of the box and can be found here: http://shop.usps.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10001&catalogId=10152&productId=36604

I salute the families of the troops and send you my sincere gratitude!

Lastly, to my niece, Megan, I am so proud of you, you have grown into a wonderful young woman and I am proud to say you are "My Niece"! I love you with all of my heart, be safe and we anxiously await your return home!
