Using Vinegar in the Garden
by Anna Moseley from AskAnnaMoseley.Com
I wish I had known this trick when we built our first house, out in the country, because I couldn’t keep the pesky deer from eating our plants!
Deer, as well as other animals, “including cats, dogs, rabbits, foxes and racoons, [don't like] the scent of vinegar even after it has dried. [To keep these pesky] visitors out of your garden [soak] several rags in full-strength white vinegar and place them on stakes around [the] garden, particularly around areas such as vegetables and flower beds. Re-soak the rags every 7-10 days.”
#2 Get rid of bird droppings
This has to be my favorite new vinegar trick! We all love to have fresh cut flowers in the house, and I’m sure I’m not the only one that gets sad when they wilt after only a few days! To “keep cut flowers fresh longer (or even perk up droopy ones) [add] 2 TBS of white vinegar and 1 TBS of sugar to the vase of water.” You better believe I will be using this trick once all my tulips pop up!
