Hello and Welcome! I decided to start this blog for everyone out there who has an interest, or WANTS to be interested, in living a life that is a little more sustainable. I am still learning, and invite you to follow this blog to learn along with me. I will share what I have learned as we go, and hopefully you will pitch in and share what YOU are doing to live a little more off of what you can grow and DO from home. PLEASE BELIEVE ME when I say, if I can learn how to do this on a very small backyard plot in a city, then ANYONE can do this!!
Todays mission...rid the cucumber plant of its spots!
I found out that the white spots on my cucumber plants are mildew-gross! By searching agriculture sites found using good-ol-google, need to remove the affected leaves and spray weekly with a fungicide. No chemicals for us, so I found this recipe for a natural fungicide spray:
1 tsp baking soda, 1 qt water and a few drops of liquid soap.
