I have never had problems with fruit flies….. Until this Fall.
I made this concoction and within 5 minutes I had captured (aka killed) one! Fast results! I don’t have many to capture but I want to nip the problem right away.
I will post another picture in a few days to show the results.
Fruit Fly No More Recipe
In a tall glass or quart jar mix together:
2 tblsp apple cider vinegar
2 tblsp sugar
Fill almost to the top with water. Stir gently.
Set jar where fruit flies seem to gather the most.
Let me know how it works for you!
The new chicks are all laying their “pullet” eggs.
Look What Happened Here Today!
I got ambitious and some help from my daughter, April, and did some canning.
Accomplished 7 pints pears, 7 quarts pickles, and started on the Crock pot Applesauce which I will can later tonight.
Ran out of Dishwasher detergent so decided to try making some. Results: let’s just say Goodbye Cascade!
2 parts borax
2 parts washing soda
1 part citric acid
1 part salt
Lemon essential oil
Combine all ingredients and store in an air tight container.
Use 1 tablespoon per load as needed.
Add one drop of dishwashing liquid to the powder before closing the soap container in the dishwasher.
Here is this mornings essential oil diffuser recipe:
3 drops Tangerine
2 drops Spearmint
2 drops Lemongrass
I like essential oils but I also love learning about herbs. I am always on the lookout for new herbal recipes to try to further my natural alternative healthcare education – you know….. for when the s*&t hits the fan! Be prepared is my motto!
Today I began the process of an Echinacea Root Tincture. This tincture takes 6 weeks to prepare. So on August 28th I will be able to bottle the tincture for use.
Echinacea assists in stimulating the body’s immune system by helping to increase the white blood cells to fight off infection and illness . It is one of the first herbs to use at the sign of sickness or wounds. Of course one needs to take care of themselves the best they can too. Eat well.
6 WEEKS IS A LONG TIME……
