Here are a few tips from hgtv.com...
- Don't like getting dirt under your nails when you work in the yard? Try dragging your fingernails across a bar of soap before you go out. It will seal the underside of your nails so dirt can't get in. When you're done, just use a nail brush and some water to clean up. The soap is already there!
- Weed eater giving you trouble? To prevent the string from jamming or breaking, spray it with vegetable oil before installing it into the trimmer.
- Want your husband and kids to help you dry herbs? Give them this project. Dry them in the car. All you have to do is put them on a sheet of newspaper in a single layer and lay them on the seat of your car on a hot day. Close the doors and windows and let them dry. Just make sure you REALLY like the way your herbs smell...
- Create natural markers for your plants with smooth, flat stones. Write on each of them with permanent marker and place them beside the plants.
