How To Make A Wine Bottle Tiki Torch for Under $4.00

Inspired by the this Recycled Wine Bottle Torch post and annoyed by mosquitoes this week (how is it that they’re already out and there’s been only a few weeks of spring?), we hit up the hardware store and threw together a $3.48 recycled wine bottle torch filled with citronella. While it’s not as classy as the real thing (nor as safe), it keeps the bugs at bay and looks pretty good. And it was quick and cheap.

They'll eat the combo while munching the leaves, and die within a day or so. Repeat as necessary..

Keep wasps and bees away this summer. Put about 10 cloves in a lemon and set out. They do not like the scent. Cut off the ends so they sit flat. I like the bees but will try this in fall to get rid of wasps!

Pomanders

Today we got around to making pomanders. The fruit was purchased a few days ago, but there was finally an hour or so that we could sit and let the fragrances of the citrus and spices waft about. We usually see this done with oranges, but for years we have preferred using lemons and limes. They don't spoil nearly as often, and oranges are just too good for eating!Begin with nice, blemish-free fruits. If you'd like to hang it from a ribbon, tape or band off sections where the ribbon will go…

get rid of squash bugs-lay boards on the soil at night; the squash bugs will tend to congregate beneath them, and you can destroy the pests the next morning. Planting radishes, nasturtiums, or marigolds among your squash plants may help repel squash bugs

My sister wrote me last year asking for advice about her new vegetable garden in St. Louis. They have loads of little bunnies. Apparently they're extremely persistent and have been known to eat even jalapeño peppers! She was worried they will eat her yummy new lettuces, carrots, radishes, and considering their track record, even her tomatoes. So I wrote this post to help her and all the rest of you who have bunny problems! Many of these solutions will also work for deer, raccoons, coyotes…

she suggested I put it on the brim of my hat and around my hairline. I don’t think she realized just how bad the bugs are. I put the cider vinegar on a paper towel and wiped my whole face, back of my neck, ears and hands with it.
