Fourth of July Party

We hope you’re all ready for the holiday, but in case you’re scrambling for some last minute party ideas, here are a few of our favorites:

  • Use red, white and blue bandannas as napkins for your silverware. Tie together with a piece of twine.
  • Create favors for your guests with sparklers. Simply write their name on a tag and tie together with the sparklers with red, white and blue ribbon.
  • Create “apple pie in a jar” favors in mini mason jars. Your guests will absolutely love to bring these home!
  • Create an American flag spread with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and white chocolate.
  • Paint mason jars with red and white stripes as well as blue with white stars. They can be used as festive vases!

Whatever you’re up to for the Fourth of July, stay safe and have fun!

Garden Pests

Pests can wreck havoc and have a devastating effect on yields. See below for tips on how to deal with common problems:

Squirrels: No amount of netting with keep these guys out for long. Gardeners have complained that after a few days of laying out netting, squirrels start chewing through it to get to their vegetables. Try sprinkling cayenne pepper around your plants or making a mixture of vinegar and cayenne to spray. Don’t forget to reapply! You could also try planting mint around the perimeter as they don’t care for it.

Rabbits: Netting might work for them, but the biggest successes we’ve seen have been from planting marigolds around the perimeter of the garden.

Birds: Netting is a sure fire way to keep birds off of your plants!
