Organic Gardening...homemade pesticide

 Have you tried making a homemade pesticide?  I gave this concoction a try last summer, and was surprised at how well it works.  And, it's so much better for us!!!

Organic Pesticide

1 liter water
1 tsp dish soap
1 to 2 tsp hot pepper
mix together and spray on leaves
Did you know that ants won't cross chalk?  Try drawing a ring of chalk around your pots.   I like to get creative and do a whole drawing around mine.  It makes for a happy sidewalk!!!

This is great advice! We just started tending to our yard after being in our house for 8 months! But I definitely don't want bugs on my brand new gardenias or herbs!
