Unusual yet Amazing Home Gardening Tips
I have been gardening in wonderful Toronto for many years now. It’s safe to say that I have made many mistakes as well as learned many things during my journey. I have obviously learned very important rules to follow when it comes to gardening. Although, I have also found out some very interesting and usual tips and tricks you can utilize when gardening.
I thought it wouldn’t be very kosher of me to go about and keep all of this information for myself. Thus, I decided that I would go out and write a little overview of the few unusual yet useful tricks I have learned form slaving away in the garden throughout my free time.
Lets Keep it all Natural
One of the things that annoy me and many fellow gardeners are those annoying markers that are put onto plants. Many people naturally will forget which plant is which. This is definitely true if you have a very large garden and are planting lots of wonderful plants which you haven’t really had the time to look into very deeply.
The result of this is usually having a garden full of sticks of ugly markers which have written on them the name and description of the plant it is marking. No-one likes seeing your beautiful garden looking like an artificial laboratory experiment. Hence, I have used a solution which makes everything looking beautifully sublime and natural. You simply get some really nice pebbles or flat rocks as markers. They look beautiful and are natural all the same, they also don’t stick out like a sore eye. Simply write down the marker and put the marking face-down into the dirt and it will seem like there are no markers at all.
Save Water and Give Nutrition
I’m not sure about you all, but I love to make some boiled vegetables for my family every now and again. Of course, I like to do a lot more to the vegetables than just boiling them as I’m a chef and I know how off-putting a bland meal can be. Well, that’s beside the point I’m trying to make though.
When you are boiling any type of vegetable you will often need quite a lot of water to get the job done. Most people will instinctively just through all of the boiled water down the drain when they are done using it. However, with all the precious water you can save yourself a lot of time and money by simply using the water to water your plants in the backyard.
When boiling vegetables, many of the nutrients get transferred to the water. This makes the water much more nutritious that regular tap water of any kind. In addition, it is a lot more natural and wholesome than some kind of sketchy fertilizer solution. Simply use the water you used to boil the water onto your plants for some much needed nutrition supplementation for your plants. In addition you won’t have to go around watering your plants every morning, as you would have done that the night before. It’s a very nice idea indeed, I would like to thank Ace for sharing this with me.
