A loyal reader suggested I share tips from the resident agronomist.
The people he worked with always called him the walking encyclopedia!
So occasionally I will be sharing lawn, gardening, food preservation
and cooking HINTS FROM HUBBY!!!!


Ugh, bring in fruit/veggies from the garden or the store,
and the fruit flies tag along.
A natural way to collect these annoying critters
is to make a trap.
Take a short glass and place a piece of fruit inside.
Most fruit will work, but bananas seem to work the best.
Cover with plastic wrap. Most will cling to the glass, but use a rubber band if needed.
Poke two small holes in the wrap over the opening of the glass.
Place glass in area close to the fruit flies.
The fruit will lure the flies in and trap them inside the glass.
Empty glass and change fruit as needed.

Tuesday Tipz

“If you want a happy ending… that depends on where you stop your story.”
– Orson Welles


Color by number books are a great way to learn and practice how to shade. 
The work of figuring out the light/dark areas have been done for you. 
However, sometimes the numbers show through the lighter colors--
I recently read a tip--and I would give credit if I actually remembered where I read it-

Tip--chose a 'number' and go through the picture and white out the numbers in all the areas to be colored. Then color in those areas before moving on to the next color. 
       Most coloring utensils will color over white out, but try a sample on scrap paper first. 
       The numbers will 'disappear' and won't show through!

Monday Make Itz


Here are some updated pictures of the light fixture project.
This would make a great large table decoration, 
or a decorating focal point for different celebrations. 
More flowers/greenery will be added. 
Even though this has been decorated for spring/summer, 
it would lend itself to Halloween or a Harry Potter themed celebration. 
After judging, solar lights may be added and placed in the whimsical garden. 
Another idea would be to put small flower pots where the lights are
for succulents, such as hen and chicks. 

Materials were less than $10.00. 
The battery candles were found at the Dollar Tree.
These flicker like real candles, without the fire. 
The flowers were found in the craft stash. 
The doily was crocheted by my mom.

The top part of the fixture has been removed and will
be reused for another project--stay tuned. 

Light fixture before altering. 

flowers, lights and  flowers added, more to come!
