19 Surprising Ways Epsom Salts Can Improve Your Life

With no warning at all, there I was back to my 8-year-old self, flat on my back with a raging migraine. Why then, after all these years?<8>
In reading up on the latest findings on what might cause my migraine headaches, I discovered the importance of magnesium to overall health—and some surprising other uses, too!

How to Get Rid of Rabbits Ruining Your Lawn and Garden

As adorable as these creatures are, rabbits can wreak havoc on a lawn and garden. Garden centers, home improvement stores, and online resources offer commerical products to help gardeners protect their plants from rabbits.

But here’s the problem: commercial repellents are expensive, they require repeated applications, and some of them may contain chemicals that can pose health hazards to pets when ingested.

The solution is to find cheaper options that are equally effective to get rid of rabbits that are ruining your lawn and garden.

Rabbit repellents basically work in two ways to keep rabbits out of your flower and vegetable garden and off the lawn—they produce a smell or taste that is repulsive for rabbits but without harm. Homemade repellents are not only less expensive, but a safe alternative to commercial products …

9 Ways to Wage War Against Mosquitoes—and Win!

Mosquitoes are nasty creatures. They bite, they transmit terrible diseases to people and pets and from what I read, have no redeeming value in the ecosystem.

Malaria, transmitted by the female mosquito, infects some 247 million people worldwide each year, and in 2018 killed 405,000 people.

Mosquitoes spread yellow fever, dengue fever, Japanese encephalitis, Rift Valley fever, Chikungunya virus, and West Nile virus.

If that’s not reason enough to hate them, they can turn a beautiful backyard, deck or patio into a nightmare area not fit for humans during mosquito season. But it doesn’t have to be that way provided you are diligent to take control of your home and property …

Join a CSA for Your Health and Your Wealth

Being a savvy consumer means a lot of things. It can refer to a person who knows how to get the lowest price on whatever he or she is buying. It can also mean finding the best value—the highest quality product for the most reasonable price. Or, it can refer to someone who shops ethically, according to his or her values.

However you define “savvy consumer,” becoming one requires research and education about the products that you buy according to your individual priorities. When it comes to shopping for food, today’s savvy consumers know where their food comes from, and, if they do things right, they save money, too.

Growing our own food is certainly one way to go—and don’t we all wish we had an abundant garden at its peak right about now! Well hang on, because I have good news.

It is quite possible you can piggyback onto an abundant “garden,” right there in your local area, with an owner willing and anxious to share its bounty. Seriously! All the details in today’s post.

Grow Your Own Food One Square Foot at a Time

For years I’ve tried to grow decent vegetable gardens. Except for one especially bountiful year, my harvests have ranged from disappointing to mediocre. And my efforts were certainly not cost-effective. Only that one year did my garden produced enough to share with others. I’m still trying to remember how I did that.

So far, I’ve been unable to duplicate the results but that’s about to change. Can’t wait to get started! …

See you there. Love, m xo 🍅🥒🌶🌽🥕🤞

How to Make Non-Toxic Natural Pest Control

Recently, a friend sent me an S.O.S. asking if I knew of any natural pest control to rid an apartment of fleas—a method that would not be toxic to small children. Treating their pets and animals would be the first step, but surprisingly these folks have no animals. The truth is that flea infestations often occur simply […]
