Melting Ice with Beet Juice??

Who needs that yucky, salty de-icer when you can just pour some beet juice on it!

Save animal paws, trees, plants and our water systems from the impact of road salt by clicking Beet Juice Mania to watch a video about how it’s done!

Hey, why don’t you let me know how it works?

It hasn’t snowed much in Peterborough, otherwise I would have tried it out myself…

SEEDS ARE ALWAYS FREE

Took a walk around town and I got some Echinacea (Purple Cone Flower), Columbines and Cosmo seeds by dead-heading plants in my neighborhood.

My Nonna also preserves tomatoes for sauce all year round. When she took Basil from our gardens, I shook out the stalks to get seeds for next year’s plants.

Collecting seeds for next year’s plants is so easy. I’ve got myself a binder with all the seeds in different baggies labeled with the year, what it is and where I got them from. Here I am, starting my own seed library!

Nature’s bounty.

PRETTY FRIGGING AWESOME.
