|Static Shock Slide!|
Grandma sent us these wonderful quilts she found at a yardsale! One for My Girl and one of Soon to be My Boy (in July he debuts). They are so beautiful and My Girl went crazy for hers, she demanded to put it on her bed and went to bed without a fuss for the past couple days just because of this quilt!
The Root Spiral has SPROUTED!!! Those are radishes, I have red onion planted in it and like 5 carrots too. Mostly onions and radishes. I was so excited to see it sprout which means my root spiral is successful so far and it looks like the herbal spiral in the future.
I also had to replenish my rosemary cleaning spray and made some homemade air freshener. Here's the recipes for them.
7 large bushy rosemary braches
1 Qt of water
1. Simmer the 2 in a pot for about an hour.
2. Strain through cheesecloth (I don't have cheesecloth, I use a cloth dish towel. Whatever you can use to make sure the plant bits don't get in with the liquid)
3. Put about a 1/4 tsp of natural dish soap (this makes it cut through grease)
4. Pour into a spray bottle after its cooled.
Lavender Air Freshener Spray
(This recipe I got from a book at the library, 1,001 Old-Time Household Hints: Timeless Bits of Household Wisdom for Today's Home and Garden by the Editors of Yankee Magazine, p53)
5 Tbs lavender flowers
1/2 teaspoon mace (I didn't use this)
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves (I used whole allspice)
1/4 teaspoon saffron (I didn't use this)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (I didn't use this)
1. Simmer in a pot with water for 60 minutes
3. Put in spray bottle.
This is the first time I have made it and I have only used it once or twice but it smells great. Amazing when its simmering!
