This is a great way to make a Fertilizer out of things we use regularly.I use this on my Potted Plants.I crush the empty Egg Shells with the Tea Leaves left over from making Tea---thrice a week. I spread this mixture at the base of my Plants near the Stems.I then mix this into the Soil gently,using a Trowel to gently turn it over .Finally I end by watering the Plants to help this Mixture to seep in.My Plants seem love this Home made Fertilizer and are growing pretty strong,healthy and happy.
1. Remove Berry Stains - If you've been picking berries, or cooking with them, your fingers tend to get stained. A piece of raw potato rubbed on to them will take off the stain. If the problem is really bad, dip the cut potato into lemon juice before using it. 2. Remove Salt from Soups - If you are making soups and stews and find that you have added a little too much salt, add a cut up potato and it will absorb the salt. . The salt enters the cells of the potato by osmosis. If potato is not
part of the recipe, make sure you remove it! 3. Compost for Potted Plants - Chopped and crushed potato makes good compost for plants. Chop the potato up and put it into the hole before you plant flowering plants.
I'm personally testing another use, so watch for Potatoes - Who Knew? Part !!
