My garden this year can only be described as delightful.
I have never used that word to describe anything before but it really is the perfect way to describe my garden.
If you google the word, the definition pops up as de·light·ful-causing delight; charming.
“a delightful secluded garden”
It’s even more perfect than I knew, although I am still working on the secluded part but as things in my garden grow taller, my neighbors are becoming less visible.
I have been pretty lucky this year because I have a ton of colorful flowers that are bursting with new blooms daily.
I can credit those colorful and full plants to this Homemade Miracle Grow Recipe below.
Mix these ingredients and pour onto plants as you would normally use Miracle Grow, for me this is about every 7-14 days.
This really depends for me on how bad the mosquitos are in my backyard.
I can only stand them for a few minutes without needing to slather myself in that poisonous bug spray that so many people are trying to avoid these days.
I get why some people are against it, it is not without its own dangers but I will spray poison on myself to avoid torture anytime, trust me the spritz of deet is going to cause less harm than being traumatized by those blood-sucking country puppies.
I am all for using natural and homemade stuff for my family when it works but in this case, a spritz of vanilla or essential oils, will not keep the mosquitoes away from me.
Maybe in your perfect little life where your hair doesn’t frizz and your weight doesn’t fluctuate the mosquitoes aren’t as ruthless but here in Ikeepsitrealville, those little fellas are relentless.
I would love to have a natural, organic solution to this problem but I have not found an effective one just yet.
I have been testing out different things in hopes of creating a working DIY Mosquito Repellent but so far I haven’t had any luck.
Although I haven’t been able to replace everything in my home with homemade things, I try to go organic when it makes sense, use fewer chemicals when possible, and create my own homemade versions of things I buy when possible.
This way I can see what goes into the product and in this case, I like knowing the ingredients that make up my homemade miracle grow since it goes into my plants, of course, I want the best.
I also have been known to add egg shells, coffee grinds, banana peels, and fish to my plants.
Some people add ammonia to their homemade miracle grow recipes but I have read conflicting reports on the effectiveness and have even read in some articles that it has been reported to have killed plants, I just don’t want to take the chance.
For now, I will stick with this Homemade Miracle Grow Recipe and continue to watch my garden in delight.
I will be posting a garden tour soon so be sure to subscribe and share this post on social media so your friends will know how to make their own Homemade Miracle Grow, too!
