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.
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.

A sharp stream of water will knock the little buggers off the plant, although a hose nozzle may be too strong - especially for tender plants like peas. Another effective alternative is insecticidal soap. The soap washes off the aphid’s protective waxy coating and causes dehydration, thus killing the insect. Insecticidal soap spray is economical, nontoxic, and environmentally safe both indoors and in the garden.
