7 Unusual Things that will keep your Garden blooming forever
 
03:34
Healthy soil, just like healthy people, requires a balanced combination of elements. Each of those elements has a key role in the various processes of your plant. For example, iron serves as the ignition for the plants to produce chlorophyll and is crucial for photosynthesis. Here are number of rather unusual things that are known to improve the health of soil and make it nutrient rich. 1.Water from boiling eggs Using the water from boiling eggs may be unusual. All you need to do is reserve the water used after boiling eggs – when the eggs boil, calcium leaches into the water, making excellent feed for your plants. Make sure you let it cool completely before using.  2.Oyster shells If you happen to live in a coastal-area where there are lots of oysters, you can crush the shells to make a slow-release fertilizer to keep the soil healthy. Just use a rolling pin to crush them up, making the pieces as small as possible. They contain calcium-carbonate which helps make the soil more alkaline, so you’ll want to use it around plants that thrive in alkaline-soil. 3.Aspirin Research has found that when water containing aspirin was sprayed onto seeds sown directly in the ground, there was 100 percent seed germination. To use it, simply add 2 aspirins to 2-gallons of water. Pour it into a spray-bottle and then spray your plants every three weeks. it not only helps to boost the immune-system of your plants , but it can stimulate flowering. 4.Eggshells You can make good use of the shells too, as they’re also loaded with calcium. Placing crushed-eggshells in soil that’s around your tomato plants can help prevent blossom-end rot. Sprinkle them around the base of plants to help keep those pesky snails and slugs away, and add them to your compost bin, as their lime content helps to reduce acidity 5.Banana-skins Banana peels are great for putting to use in your garden soil as they make one of the best fertilizers around, as they’re high in calcium, phosphorus, and potassium, as well as a host of other minerals, that are essential to the soil’s health. Chop them up, throw them into your compost-pile or add them directly to the soil, burying them anywhere from just beneath the surface, up to four inches down. 6.Tea You’ll need to save your used tea bags, and make sure they’re made from paper, silk or muslin as bags made up of polypropylene won’t decompose. You can still use them, but you’d have to throw out the actual bag and save the damp tea leaves. Not only can you compost tea bags as fertilizer in the compost-bin, but you can dig loose leaf teas and compostable tea bags around your plants. 7.Coffee grounds. The grounds contain a large amount of nitrogen and can help your plants grow faster, whether it’s tomatoes or grass. They also contain potassium and phosphorus, which means the grounds offer all three of the essential ingredients for fertilizer.

8 Vegetables and Herbs You Can Re grow Again and Again Inside your House or Garden
 
03:38
here are 8 such Vegetables and Herbs You Can Regrow Again and Again in your garden. Do you throw your garlic-bulbs out once they start to sprout? What about your potatoes when they get a little wrinkly? How about ginger-root that sits out on the counter too long? Well, you could be getting a lot more value out of your produce than you may realize! Many popular edibles can be regrown from the scraps you're likely throwing-out. Keep watching for a list of veggie scraps you will want to hang on to, from here on out. 1.Basil Basil is a breeze to propagate. Simply take some healthy, fresh, 4-inch cuttings from a young basil plant. Leave just two sets of leaves at the top of each cutting, and remove the remaining leaves. Then, submerge the cuttings in a few inches of clean-water. It may take between 1-2 weeks for roots to form after which Plant it in a small-pot for the windowsill, or out in your garden.  2.Mint Another herb worth growing from cuttings is mint. Much like basil, you'll want cuttings about 4 to 5 inches in length. Remove lower leaves and place the cuttings in clean-water. Once roots develop, Transfer to a container filled with potting-soil.  3.Green Onions and Scallions Do you love to toss some green-onions on just about everything? Buy them once, and then grow them from the scraps on a windowsill. Place the root leftover from the green-onions in a couple of inches of water.  And in just a few days you'll notice roots form but also the leaves will start to grow. Continue to harvest while in water, or plant in a container of potting-soil. 4.Ginger Root Have you ever bought ginger-root and noticed little buds forming? Plant it! You'll have fresh ginger to harvest soon enough! Soak the roots overnight to encourage growth, and then you can transfer it to a container filled with potting-soil. Ginger doesn't like standing-water, so make sure your container has drainage-holes. ​ 5.Garlic If your garlic-cloves start to sprout, plant them! Garlic is one of the easiest plants to grow over and over again. One clove planted in the garden, in either early-fall or late winter depending on your area, can multiply into a bulb of multiple-cloves. 6.Celery Celery follows the same protocol as many others. Once you use the celery-stalks, save the end that's leftover. Place it root side down in clean water for around a week, then transfer the celery to rich, well-draining soil and watch it really start to take-off. 7.Lettuce Buy a fresh head of lettuce, make a salad, and plop the base of the leaves you're left with in a couple of inches of water. Within a week it will begin to regrow! And 8. Sweet-Potatoes If you love sweet-potatoes, consider growing them yourself! submerging more than half of a sweet-potato in a glass of water and sitting it on a sunny windowsill. Wait for sprouts to form and reach 4-inches or so Once roots form and grow a little, plant out in the garden.

03:24
Good soil means everything for a gardener looking to raise healthy, happy plants. While there are certainly countless chemicals and egg expensive solutions, there are actually many simple things you can do to boost nutrients and maintain a successful garden. Curious to learn more? In this video I’ll show you 6 ways to make any type of soil enrich with nutrients naturally after which you’ll never feel the need to buy those expensive chemical fertilizers. 1. Raw Egg The solution for a thriving plant may be as simple as planting a raw egg. As you prepare your pots with soil, simply include a single raw egg at the bottom. Over time, the egg will decompose and works as a natural fertilizer for the seedlings.  You can also use crushed eggshells which work just as good as whole egg. Eggshell has calcium, nitrogen and phosphoric acid which make them an ideal choice for garden use. So next time you boil or fry an egg don’t throw away the egg shell but instead Recycle them to grow seedlings. When the seedling is ready to be planted outside, place the shell and seedling directly in the ground. The eggshell will decompose over time and help fertilize the soil. 2. Banana Skins Bananas contain a number of nutrients including potassium, phosphate, sulfur, calcium, magnesium and sodium. All of these things can help promote healthy growing for plants. best way to effectively use banana peels is to cut them up into small pieces so that they can decompose faster. This will result in organic matter that helps establish rich soil 3. Ash If you have a fireplace, you'll love this free method for raising pH levels.   you simply scatter the ash around the soil as a way to lower acidic levels. This will make it easier to grow a fresh crop. 4. Leaves Allowing leaves to rot over a garden during winter will provide nutrients for the soil to prepare it for the next growing season. The leaves work to pull the organic matter back down into the soil making it dark and rich.  5. Epsom Salt Epsom salts are especially good for soil. Low pH levels are usually an indication of a magnesium imbalance. To boost pH levels in the soil, dilute Epsom salt with water and spray on the plants. The vegetation will soak up the welcomed nutrients.   6.Use Compost Regularly While using bits and pieces of natural matter can be helpful, combining many pieces of compost will only go one step further toward enriching your soil. There are a number of benefits of using natural compost regularly  it works to improve the soil structure while using less water and warding off common plant diseases. The soil benefits from added layers of nutrients, especially before a growing season.  Now if you liked the video give it a thumbs up and if this is your first time visiting my channel please subscribe for more videos.

Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Ants Without Using Pesticide
 
03:25
There’s nothing like walking into your kitchen first thing in the morning, bleary eyed and ready for your morning cup of coffee only to find that your home has been invaded. Marching one-by-one in a seemingly endless stream, these tiny insects are one of life’s biggest pests and getting rid of them can be a huge pain. Here are 7 natural methods that can be used to get rid of these irritating insects without filling your home, garden or yard with toxic chemical ant killers. 1.Vinegar vinegar works by destroying the ants’ pheromone trails. You actually watch this effect in action by spraying a mixture of vinegar and water in a circle around a group of marching ants. Cut off from their scent markings, the line of ants will almost immediately break apart and the insects will start to wander aimlessly around, well and truly lost without their scent trail to direct them. 2.Fresh Garlic Simply peel a clove or two of fresh garlic and place them near the ants. You can actually watch as the insects seem to bounce off of an invisible force-field around each clove and run away! Eventually, a garlic clove will dry up and become ineffective, so you may need to replace dried up cloves with fresh garlic if ants return. 3.Baking soda. while baking soda is great for humans, it wreaks havoc on ants by disrupting their bodies’ natural chemistry. Create your own natural ant bait by mixing equal parts baking soda and powdered sugar in a container and place it near the line of marching insects to attract them to your homemade bait. The ants will take it back to their nest, eat it and rapidly dwindle in numbers, thus saving your pantry and your sanity! 4.Borax repellent. Mix 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon Borax in a lidded plastic container.  Poke holes in the lid and pour a bit of sugar around the container. Doing so will lure the ants to the container and encourage them to fall into the trap. 5.Minty Fresh Cure: To repel ants in the kitchen and bathroom, place several drops of peppermint essential oil on cotton balls and place them on counter tops, in cabinets and pantry, near the garbage container, and other places that attract ants. 6.Use coffee grounds. Spread coffee grounds on ant hills and along your house foundation. This safe material confuses the worker ants because they lose their scent trails. This causes the hatched young in the ant colonies to have no food and starve. 7.Use bay laurel or bay leaves to keep ants from attractants. Ants are especially attracted to sugar, paprika, and flour. Put bay or bay laurel leaves in your sugar can, flour container, and paprika jar. • Over time, the ant repelling strength of these leaves and lose potency. Replace every month for best results.

How To Pick The Sweetest Watermelon Every Single Time
 
02:40
It isn't summer until you've had your first watermelon of the season. Chances are though, it's been about a year since you've bought your last watermelon. Do you remember how to pick out a good one? Many people have no idea how to select a watermelon. They just knock on this over-sized fruit as if they know what they are doing. Although it can be difficult to know how ripe the interior is just by inspecting the outside, there are several clever tricks you can learn to help you pick the perfect watermelon. 1.Lift a few The watermelon should be heavy for its size, as this indicates that it is full of water and therefore nice and ripe. Try comparing the weight of your watermelon with another of equal size - the heavier one will be the riper. This advice goes for most fruits and vegetables. 2.Look for the field spot. The underside of the watermelon should have a creamy yellow spot, known as the field spot. This is where the melon sat on the ground and ripened in the sun, so the darker it is the better! This one is no wives' tale. If the field spot is white, or even nonexistent, this probably means that the watermelon was picked too soon, and will not be ripe. 3.Inspect the color. A perfect, ripe watermelon should be dark green in color and dull in appearance, rather than shiny. A shiny watermelon will usually be under ripe. 4.Say no to stem If the melon still has a stem on it, move along. This means the melon didn't come off the vine easily so it wasn't quite ripe. You could look for a melon with a slightly indented end. This indicates that the melon came off the vine on its own. 5.What about knocking? knocking is pointless, however you can hold the watermelon like you're cradling a baby and give it a good thwap, you'll feel the vibrations in your bottom hand if the watermelon is right. 6.What about selecting a pre-cut melon? If you're purchasing pre-cut watermelon, there are also certain things to look out for. Choose pieces with bright red flesh and dark brown or black seeds. Avoid pieces with white streaks and an abundance of white seeds. You should also steer clear if the flesh looks dried out or mealy, or is separating from the seeds. Now, What about you? Do you have any tricks to pick a perfect watermelon?

9 Of The Fastest Growing Veggies You Can Harvest In No Time
 
03:47
Not all vegetables take from spring from fall to mature. If you’re getting a late start on your home garden or live in a region with a short growing season, fear not. There are many healthy, delicious vegetables that are quick to harvest. Here are the 9 fastest growing vegetables to get your garden jumpstarted. 1.Garden Cress – 14 Days Ready to harvest in as little as 2-weeks, garden cress can be planted in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Also a garden space-saver, a small (1 or 2 feet square) patch of cress will supply you with an abundance of this tangy herb. 2.Radishes – 21 Days A cool season crop, spring radishes grow best in 50⁰F to 65⁰F weather. Once sown, you’ll see leafy green shoots above the soil in just three or four days. Keep planting seeds every week or two for a constant harvest through spring and autumn. 3.Green-Onions – 21 Days Also called scallions, green-onions are quick-growing plants that can be cut back to their base again and again throughout the season. Once their green shoots reach a height of 6-inches, they are ready for the first round of harvesting. 4.Tatsoi – 25 Days A low-growing mustard green, tatsoi is a wonderful addition to salads and soups. Baby tatsoi leaves can be harvested when they reach 4-inches in length, or you can wait the full 40-days for tatsoi to mature to full size. 5.Lettuce – 30 Days Another cool-weather vegetable that prefers temperatures between 60⁰F and 70⁰F, lettuce seeds should be sown in early spring and late-summer. Of the five types of lettuce – loose-leaf, cos, crisphead, butterhead, and stem. leaf lettuce varieties like green leaf and red leaf are among the easiest to cultivate and are more tolerant of hot weather. Planting new seeds every 14-days will provide a continuous harvest. 6.Spinach – 30 Days Able to survive in temperatures as low as 15⁰F, spinach is a cold hardy-vegetable that can be planted as soon as the ground-thaws. Pluck outer spinach leaves from the plant as it grows or re-sow seeds every 2-weeks for successive harvests. Don’t wait too long to gather spinach because its leaves will become bitter once the plant reaches maturity. 7.Arugula – 30 Days Since arugula seeds germinate well in cooler-soil, they can be planted as soon as the garden bed can be worked after the spring thaw. Sow seeds every two to three weeks for continuous-harvesting. 8.Kale – 30 Days A “cut-and-come-again” plant, kale’s young and tender leaves can be culled continually throughout the growing-season once the plant is about 2-inches tall. Avoid picking the central bud, since this keeps kale growing and productive. And 9. Swiss-Chard – 45 Days A member of the beet family, Swiss-chard can be harvested throughout the season by cutting-off the outer leaves when they are about 3-inches long and are still young and tender. In addition to using the fresh-leaves in salads, you can cut Swiss-chard stems from the leaf and cook them like you would asparagus.

Never Throw Away Wood Ash if You Have a Garden
 
03:32
Each cord of firewood that you burn leaves you with 20 pounds of ashes or more, depending on your fuel source, heating appliance, and wood-burning skill. Wood ash is primarily composed of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium, but also contains trace amounts of iron, sodium and zinc. Because it’s created through the combustion of plant materials, it holds many of the elements needed to support new growth and has long been used by gardeners and farmers as a natural soil amendment. Here are top 5 uses of wood ash in your yard. 1.Neutralize Acidic Soil. Unless you are growing acid-loving plants like blueberries, peppers, and azaleas, you will want to maintain a soil pH of between 6 to 7.5 in your garden beds. This range is considered ideal because nutrients in fertilizers will be readily dissolved in water and better absorbed by the plant’s roots. Acidic soil (a pH below 6) means plants won’t receive enough nitrogen, phosphorus, or potassium. Wood ash contains up to 70% calcium carbonate and can be used as a substitute for lime. As a general rule, never exceed 25 pounds of wood ash per 1,000 square feet of soil and always re-test your soil after applying wood ash. 2.Add it to Your Compost Pile. Wood ash added to your compost will help boost the heap’s potassium levels, a key nutrient for flowering and fruiting. But including wood ash in the compost should be done in moderation – at a rate of every six inches of compost pile – because wood ash is alkaline. Too much of the stuff will raise the pH value of your compost pile. 3.Make Ash Tea. Just as compost tea is an awesome organic, all-purpose fertilizer, ash tea can likewise be brewed to prevent or correct potassium deficiencies. Brown spots, curling leaf tips, yellowing between leaf veins, slower plant growth and reduced crop yield are some of the telltale signs your plants are not receiving enough potassium. To make tea from wood ash, place five pounds of ash in a cloth bag (like an old pillowcase) and tie it closed. Place the ash bag in a 50-gallon garbage bin filled with water and allow it to steep for several days. Once the ash tea has brewed, pour about a cup’s worth around your plants weekly. 4.Fertilize Your Lawn A light dusting of wood ash on the lawn can help promote greener pastures. After applying ashes to your yard, water it well to prevent the beneficial nutrients from blowing away. 5.Melt Ice & Snow One safe and natural alternative to create traction, de-ice, and melt snow is wood ashes. Because wood ash contains potash – or potassium carbonate – a type of salt that is much eco-friendlier than chloride-based salts, it can help break up ice and melt snow when scattered on driveways and walkways.  Unlike rock salt, it won’t corrode surfaces like concrete and metal, harm the paws of your four-legged friends, or damage your plants come spring.

03:46
Homemade Organic Pesticide: Aphids, spider mites, and other pests can cause serious damage to flowers, fruits, and vegetables. These creatures attack your garden in swarms, literally draining the life from your crops and often inviting disease in the process. Many chemical pesticides can prove unsafe for the environment or may make fruits and vegetables unsafe for consumption, however. Thankfully, there are many homemade, organic options for you to turn to in your war against pests. Remedy 1 using chilies & Garlic • Combine 1/2 cup (113 grams) of hot peppers with 1/2 cup (113 grams) of garlic cloves or onions. You may also use both onions and garlic. All the vegetables should be chopped prior to use • Blend the vegetables together in a blender to form a thick, chunky paste. • Add the vegetable paste to half a liter of warm water mixing the ingredients together Thoroughly. • Pour the solution into a plastic or glass container and allow it to sit for 24 hours. If possible, keep it in a sunny location. If not, at least keep the mixture in a warm spot. • Next, Pour the solution through a strainer, removing the vegetables and collecting the vegetable-infused water into another container. This water is your pesticide. • Pour your pesticide into a squirt bottle and spray on the affected plants Remedy 2 using orange peels • Peel an orange and Place the peels into a glass container and pour 2 cups (500 milliliters) of boiling water over the peels, Allowing the solution to sit in a warm spot for 24 hours. • Next, Pour the solution into a strainer, removing the peels and saving the citrus-infused water • Add a few drops of castile soap. Peppermint-scented castile soap may prove especially effective. Mix the solution thoroughly to combine • Pour the pesticide into a large squirt bottle and Spray the entire plant to ward off most soft-bodied pests Remedy 3 Using neem • Combine 15 milliliters of neem oil with 1/2 teaspoon mild soap. Many believe neem oil, which comes from a bitter tree leaf, to be one of the most effective natural pesticides in existence • Mix the neem and soap into 2 liters of warm water Stirring slowly but thoroughly. • Pour the pesticide into a spray bottle and spray on spots where you can clearly see pests or signs of pests. Remedy 4 using tobacco • Mix 1 cup of tobacco into 2 liters of water.  • Sit the mixture out in the sun or in warm location, allowing it to rest for 24 hours. • Check the color of the mixture. Ideally, the pesticide will look similar to the hue of a light tea. If it is too dark, dilute it with water. If it is too light to see, allow it to sit an additional few hours • Add 3 tablespoons of mild liquid dish soap to the solution and Mix thoroughly. • Pour the mixture into a large squirt bottle. Shake the solution inside the bottle once more to combine it further and spray on affected plants.

You'll Be Amazed With What Cinnamon Can Do To Your Garden
 
03:22
Cinnamon is a fantastic aromatic, which makes it great for baking and cooking, but this versatile spice isn't just for the kitchen! With origins dating back to as early as 2700 B.C., cinnamon is a popular spice all over the world for uses in cooking and medicine. Once a very valuable trade commodity, you can find ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks at most grocery stores at a fair price. You might want to stockpile the spice when you see everything it can do in your garden. 1.Cinnamon as rooting agent Cinnamon as a rooting agent is as useful as willow water or hormone rooting powder. A single application to the stem when you plant the cutting will stimulate root growth in almost every plant variety. Give your cuttings for example rose cuttings a quick start with the help of cinnamon powder. Pour a spoonful onto a paper towel and roll damp stem ends in the powder before Planting the stems in fresh potting soil. The cinnamon will encourage the stem to produce roots and more stems, while helping to prevent the fungus that causes damping-off disease. 2.Protect seedlings from disease The antifungal properties in cinnamon make it a great tool for protecting seedlings from rot and disease, also known as damping off. Keeping moisture at bay is key; dusting the seeds with cinnamon and using a doming tactic can protect the seeds until they grow. 3.Defeat fungus When you sprinkle ground cinnamon on soil, it kills fungi. Take advantage of cinnamon fungicide control by making a cinnamon spray for plants. Stir some cinnamon powder into warm water and allow it to steep overnight. Strain the liquid through a coffee filter and put the results into a spray bottle. Spray the stems and leave of affected plants. You can use cinnamon to kill wild mushrooms too. 4.Heal sick plants Try sprinkling cinnamon on a plant wound from cutting or other damage to speed up the healing process and protect it from further damage or disease. 5.Deter ants If you have a problem with ants in your home or greenhouse, cinnamon is a good deterrent. Ants don’t like to walk where cinnamon powder lays, so ant problems will be decreased. Use cinnamon for pests inside and outside your house. Find their entryway and sprinkle cinnamon powder in the path. Cinnamon won’t kill the ants in your home, but it will help to keep them from coming inside. If you have a problem with ants in your child’s sandbox, mix a container of cinnamon powder with the sand, mixing it well. Ants will steer clear of the sand. 6.Keep mosquitoes away from the garden Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon around your plants to keep mosquitoes and other bugs away. They don't like the strong smell of cinnamon, so you can enjoy your garden even at night in peace. Have you tried using cinnamon in the garden?

Never Buy Fertilizer Again Instead Make your Own Organic Fertilizer with just this
 
03:41
Organic gardening is as popular as ever, and the methods we use plays a critical role in our health and the health of the planet. Go no further than your pantry and backyard for materials to make your own organic fertilizer. Here are 9 of my favorite DIY organic fertilisers for a variety of needs. 1.Use grass clippings. Grass clippings make great organic fertilizer as they provide moisture for the soil and prevent weeds from cropping up. Use freshly cut grass from lawns that have not been treated with herbicides. Sprinkle a ½ inch layer of grass clippings on the soil as fertilizer. 2.Use coffee grounds as fertilizer. Used coffee grounds contain good nutrients for plants like nitrogen, phosphoric acid, and potash. They are particularly good for blueberries, evergreens, azaleas, roses, and fruit trees. Use your own coffee grounds or ask coffee shops for their used grounds. 3.Add egg shells to the garden. Egg shells contain beneficial nutrients for plants like nitrogen, phosphoric acid, and calcium. Crush up egg shells in an old coffee grinder and sprinkle them on your garden soil for a natural-fertilizer. 4.Soak the garden with Epsom salts. Epsom salts are great for encouraging plant growth and seed germination. Combine 1-tablespoon of Epsom salts with 1 gallon of water. Put the mixture in a spray bottle and apply it to the foliage in the garden. • The Epsom salts can also increase fruit and flower production for roses, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and indoor houseplants. 5.Banana peels.  Eating a banana helps replenish lost potassium. Roses love potassium too. Simply chop banana peels and throw them in the hole before planting or bury peels under mulch so that they can compost naturally to give you bigger and more blooms. You can also use banana peels on vegetable plants.  6.Molasses. using molasses in compost tea supposedly increases microbes and the beneficial bacteria that microbes feed on. If you want to start out with a simple recipe for molasses fertilizer, mix 1-3 tablespoons of molasses into a gallon of water. Water your plants with this concoction and watch them grow bigger and healthier.  7.Use wood ash or sawdust as fertilizer. Wood ash and sawdust add calcium and potassium to the soil. They can also help to raise the PH of the soil if it is too acidic, making it more hospitable to neutral PH plants like vegetables. Sprinkle wood ash or sawdust to the soil. Use five pounds of wood ash or sawdust for every 100 square feet of soil. 8.Fertilize with worm castings. Worm castings contain beneficial nutrients for the soil. You can buy worm castings from your local gardening store or start a worm farm and make your own. Spread the worm castings over the soil to fertilize it. • Add enough worm castings to cover the soil completely in a thin layer. And 9. Make your own Compost. Put kitchen scraps, tree leaves, and other kitchen and garden waste to work by making your own compost.

If You Drink Turmeric Milk Before Bedtime, This is What Happens To Your Body
 
03:43
Please Subscribe! ▶ https://goo.gl/ksfh7M If You Drink Turmeric Milk Before Bedtime, This is What Happens To Your Body Turmeric is commonly used as a seasoning in food and can also be used as a dye for clothes. Turmeric’s health benefits are vast, but not very well-known. If you are not a curry fan, turmeric-milk is an excellent option. Simply add half a tea-spoon of turmeric to hot or cold-milk. Here are the following benefits of drinking turmeric-milk before-bedtime 1.It is a liver-tonic: Laboratory tests and clinical studies have demonstrated the ability of the curcumin in turmeric to prevent and reverse liver cirrhosis and fatty-liver. Liver, being the chemical-hub of the body, is constantly engaged in the processing of chemical substances entering the body. That includes environmental pollutants, chemical additives in processed foods and drugs taken for other disease conditions. The hepato-protective and detoxifying action of turmeric reduces the impact of injuries to liver tissue by these toxic substances. Increasing the production of bile, it helps remove biliary obstructions too.  2.It is an excellent blood purifier Turmeric has always been regarded as an excellent detoxifying agent. Our body has to deal with an onslaught of toxins that enter the blood through our food and drink as well as the respiratory tract. They can damage not only the blood vessels but all the other tissues that the contaminated blood reaches. Toxins in the blood are the underlying causes of many abnormal-skin conditions and other diseases. Turmeric helps the elimination of blood impurities by improving the function of the liver which is entrusted with the duty of identifying these toxins and finding a way to eliminate them. Moreover, the diuretic effect of turmeric helps flush out these toxins through urine. 3.Improved Digestion Turmeric can be used to help treat a variety of digestive problems, including digestive tract inflammation and reduction of gas and bloating. Just a little daily can help with almost any condition. However, those with gallbladder disease should not take turmeric due to over-stimulation. 4.Heart Health: Curcumin has also been shown to reduce bad-cholesterol (LDL), remove plaque buildups in the arteries, and prevent blood clotting. 5.It has anti-cancer properties The curcumin in turmeric has been shown to kill cancer-cells and prevent their spread to other areas in laboratory studies. It is found to be effective against cancers of the breast, prostate, skin, colon, and lung. Many cancerous growths go undetected and untreated in the initial stages when it would have been much easier to stop them in their tracks. Drinking turmeric-milk regularly may help prevent malignant growths as well as stop their progress in the early stages. 6.Gives relief from a cough and cold Turmeric-milk is a commonly used traditional remedy for a cough, cold, and other respiratory tract infections. Turmeric increases mucus production which naturally flushes out the microbes that have managed to get a foothold in the respiratory tract. The antiviral and antibacterial properties of turmeric can help fight the infections while the anti-inflammatory property helps relieve the symptoms. A cup of warm turmeric-milk before going to bed will relieve nighttime coughing and provide restful sleep.

Put Baking Soda On Your Garden Plants and This will Happen
 
03:27
You probably have at least one box of baking soda in your home – if you’re like so many other Americans, it’s most likely sitting in your refrigerator as a way to combat odors, and you might have another carton in your pantry for baking. But there are so many other uses for it, from household cleaning and health to gardening, you might want to go out and purchase at least a couple more. Here is what baking soda can do to your garden. 1.Get more beautiful blooms. For flowers that thrive in alkaline soil, such as hydrangeas, begonias, and geraniums, you can encourage them to bloom magnificently by using baking soda. Just dissolve a little baking soda in your water before giving them their regular drink. Also to keep your cut flowers fresh for a long time put a teaspoon of baking soda in the vase. 2. Sweeter Tomatoes. Sprinkle a small amount of baking-soda around the base of your tomato plants. The baking soda will be absorbed into the soil and lowers the acidity level of tomatoes, thus gives you sweeter than tart flavor. 3.Give Plants a Boost. Mix together 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon clear ammonia and 1 teaspoon Epsom salt in a gallon of water. Mix well and give each plant about a quart of the solution. This solution will work as a fertilizer, the plants that are looking dull, and growing slowly will perk up, rejuvenate their growth and become lush green. 4.Use it as a Pesticide. Use baking soda to effectively reduce infestations of many insects such as aphids, scales, and the spider mites. It may not kill them all but have a repellent action and halt their progress. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/3 cup of olive or mustard oil. Measure out 2 teaspoons of this mix and add it to 1 cup of water. Mix it well together and spray it on the infected plants. 5.Smelly compost. To keep the smell from a compost pile under control, use a small amount of baking soda which will eliminate the odor and prevent acidity build up – just use it sparingly as too much can slow the composting process. 6.Kill crabgrass and discourage weeds. If you have weeds or crabgrass growing in cracks on sidewalks, edges, patios or garden beds, you can use baking soda to get rid of them. It’s able to kill small weeds that have already sprouted, as well as to prevent new weeds from coming up. It will burn unwanted foliage, and feeds should disappear within just a few days. Just pour a thick layer onto the weeds and crabgrass after moistening it with water. Sweep the baking soda in a thick layer into any concrete cracks. 7.Test Soil pH. Take some soil on a dish and make it muddier. Sprinkle a small amount of baking soda onto the soil. If the combination bubbles, your soil is acidic.

8 Perennial Fruits And Veggies to Plant Once And Harvest For Years
 
03:50
Growing vegetables and fruits in the home garden is rewarding, but many people are put off by the backbreaking work involved at the start of the growing season. Perennial edibles are the answer to this problem. Here are 8 Fruits & Veggies That Will Keep Coming Back Year After Year. 1.Sweet-potatoes. Sweet-potatoes are usually grown as annuals in cooler climates, but the vine can live as a perennial in the same spot for years in warmer areas. Grow sweet-potatoes from rooted cuttings you get from garden centers, or make your own planting material by allowing the tubers to sprout and put out many runners. Although sweet-potato vine can grow in poor soil, it gives plentiful harvest if the soil is loose and fertile.  2.Blueberry. This North American native deserves to be part of every edible garden. Once established, a blueberry plant can provide berries for several decades. Blueberry bushes are acid-loving; they grow best in soils with pH-5. It should be evenly moist and well drained. Occasional pruning keeps the bushes healthy. 3.Asparagus. Asparagus is probably one of the most well-known perennial vegetables. It takes a few-years until it begins producing at its best, but once established you will be enjoying a plethora of fresh shoots every spring. Although it is possible to start asparagus from seed, you can speed-up the harvest timeline by planting asparagus crowns. 4.Alpine-strawberries.  Alpine-strawberries are worth planting as a perennial fruit that also acts as a great groundcover. Similar to cultivated-strawberries, alpine strawberries can be planted as crowns, and make a great edible addition to an otherwise ornamental garden. While not as productive as the cultivated variety, once ripe these berries are deliciously sweet garden treats. 5.Rhubarb. Although most people know of rhubarb in pie form, it is in fact a perennial vegetable with beautiful leaves and an edible stalk. Like asparagus, rhubarb is best planted from crowns and should be allowed to establish for a few years before harvesting. 6.Sorrel. A salad green often grown as an annual, but actually a perennial. Can be harvested as soon as 60-days after planting. When the leaves are cut it just keeps coming again. Be sure to remove the flowers to keep the plant producing leaves into autumn. 7.Daylilies As any gardener will tell you, daylilies thrive on neglect. So much so, they have naturalized across the United-States. While they are primarily grown as ornamentals in North-America, they are grown as a vegetable in Asia, harvested for their daily profusion of flower-buds, which are used like green beans.

8 Surprising Reasons To Use Hydrogen Peroxide in Your Garden
 
03:24
Hydrogen peroxide ranks up there with baking soda and vinegar as one of the best multi-purpose products to have stocked in your cupboards. Typically used to sanitize injuries, hydrogen peroxide can also be used somewhere quite unexpected: the garden. While not strictly an organic solution, hydrogen peroxide is safe for use in any type of garden including vegetables, plus it's easy on the budget. Here Are 8 benefits of using Hydrogen peroxide in your garden 1.Peroxide help seeds grow faster You can speed up the growth of seeds by soaking them in a weak solution of water and peroxide for a few minutes before rinsing and planting. 2.Peroxide works as a rooting agent The key to a strong, healthy plant is a good base, the roots. Give your roots a boost by dosing them with a little bit of peroxide. This can also help revive limp leaves. Spray a peroxide/water solution into the soil around the plant. 3.Peroxide keeps bugs away Skip expensive chemicals at the store and spritz your plants with 1% hydrogen peroxide to keep bugs at bay. 4.Peroxide can prevent infections on cut plants and trees Treat infections on plant leaves or roots with a spray of water and peroxide to disinfect the area and prevent the disease from spreading. You'll want to douse the area with a lot of the water/peroxide solution for the best results. 5.Peroxide helps aerate the soil Plants of all kinds need three basic things to survive: food, water and air. If your soil is too compact that means the roots can't get enough circulation to properly grow. Plus, soil that's too dense is a breeding ground for disease. Apply 2 parts water to 1-part peroxide to the roots of your plant to help aerate the soil around it. 6.Treat your water with hydrogen peroxide Make the water you feed your plants a little healthier, by adding a bit of peroxide with the water in your watering can before applying to your plants and lawn. The peroxide removes chemicals and pesticides from tap water, making it healthier for your plants. 7.Peroxide helps heal sick plants In particular, a peroxide is a great option for treating root rot. If your soil is too compact, root rot can develop. Use 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed with water (one-part peroxide to two parts water) and pour it over the infected roots of your plant. And 8.Use peroxide to disinfect garden tools Stop the spread of disease in your plants and garden by sanitizing your tools. This is especially true after finding and treating a fungus. Jut soak your tools in 1 gallon of water and 2 cups of peroxide. Have you ever used hydrogen peroxide in your garden? let us know in the comments below!

No Backyard? No Problem. 10 Of The Easiest Vegetables You Can Grow In Containers
 
03:30
Grow your own food without an allotment! You can harvest significant crops by growing vegetables in containers and pots . It’s the perfect choice for balcony and patio-gardens, small gardens with limited space or rented homes where you can’t dig over the garden beds. Here are my top 10 vegetable varieties You Can try in containers. You’ll be amazed how much food you can harvest from such a small space! 1.Beets. These are great container crops. To avoid a glut, sow a few seeds every couple of weeks and you’ll be harvesting them all through summer. Soak the seeds in warm water for a few hours before sowing to speed-up germination. 2.Potatoes. Many people think potato plants need lots of room to grow, but what they actually need is deep-soil. They will grow in long containers like barrels or plastic dustbins. 3.Carrots. Like potatoes, carrots need deep soil to grow well, but there are short-rooted varieties that do well in containers. Sow thinly (2-3cm apart) and water during dry periods. Be careful not to bruise or crush the foliage as the smell may attract the root-ruining pest, carrot fly. 4.Eggplant. Any pot which has the capacity to hold up to 5 inches’ depth can be used for growing eggplant. However, without stake you would not be able to hold the plant in the pot, so be careful.   5.Radishes. Crispy, peppery radishes are great in salads and a good crop for beginner veg gardeners. They are trouble-free and ready to harvest in as little as a month. Sow little and often for a continuous supply and water well. 6.Swiss chard. Chard is a stunning leafy green that is related to spinach and beetroot. It’s becoming more popular in the kitchen and its colorful stems make it a really attractive crop too – it even comes in rainbow varieties! 7.Green Onions. Spring or salad onions are a great crop for containers because they don’t need deep soil. They are also extremely easy to grow. 8.Spinach. Spinach is a great cut and come again crop for containers, and full of leafy green goodness. Fill a container with rich compost and put the spinach seedlings in a spot with light shade – too much hot sunlight will lead to bolting. Water copiously in dry weather to prevent the spinach leaves from tasting bitter 9.Lettuce. Grow your own fresh salads with lettuce plants. Sow one or two at intervals so they don’t all mature at the same time. You need rich soil that is kept really moist for lettuces to grow well. Water in the morning rather than the evening, and cut the head when the firm heart has formed. And 10. Herbs. Kitchen herbs are the easiest edible plants to grow and deserve a spot on any container gardening list. Try thyme, chives, mint, sage, parsley, oregano and rosemary outdoors, and basil and coriander on the kitchen-windowsill. What sort of veggies and herbs do you find easy to grow in containers?

This Will Water Your Plants While on Vacation Works Like A Charm
 
03:15
Everyone needs a vacation from time to time. Pets often get put under the care of a friend, neighbour or pet boarding house, but what about plants? Some plants can last a long time without water, but other plants need weekly or even daily care. If you are going away for a trip, you need to ensure that your plants will receive enough water to survive your absence. Here are Some DIY ways worth Giving a Try. 1.Make Bottle Drip System Make sure that the soil is completely damp. If the soil is too-dry, it will soak-up all the water from your bottle before you even leave for your trip. Having the soil already damp before you begin will ensure that the plant doesn't soak-up the water too fast. Pierce several holes at the bottom and on the sides of a plastic bottle and bury it in the soil next to the plant, leaving the mouth of the bottle exposed. Just before you Leave for the trip, fill the bottle with water to the top. The water will gradually drip into the soil keeping your plants happy. 2.Water plants with a wine bottle Carefully pierce a few holes in a screw-top lid of an empty wine-bottle using a screwdriver or nail. Fill the bottle with water and then screw the lid back-on. Now bury it top side down in the soil – the water will drip through the holes slowly watering your plants. 3.Place saucers under pots. Keep indoor and outdoor potted plants on a saucer so excess water is collected and reabsorbed. 4.Self-watering pot using string Take a length of cotton string or cloth and push one end into the soil of your pot plant and the other end into a Gallon-size jar of water. When the soil becomes dry water will be drawn through the string by the genius of capillary action, rehydrating the plant. Position the jug so that it is out of direct sunlight; this will reduce the amount of evaporation, consider putting a piece of duct-tape over the mouth of the jug; be careful not to cover the string, this will help slow down the rate of evaporation. Make sure that the mouth of the jug is above the base of the plant. If the jug is too low, put it on top of a book, a block, or an upturned pot to raise it up a little. This way, the water will be able to drip down the string. The string must be able to hold-water. If it can't hold-water, this method won't work. And 5. Time Share with Friends Form a vacation watering co-op with one or more friends. Make arrangements to take-care of each other’s garden while away on vacation. You'll care for their plants while they're away and they'll care for yours, while you take off. Try and make it easier on them by keeping the hose-handy and ready to go and grouping as many plants together as you can.

Feeling Tired All the Time? Try These Natural Energy Boosters
 
03:43
That feeling when you're utterly drained of energy, and nothing can entice you to get off the couch and get moving. Low energy levels can make it difficult to be productive at work or to engage in everyday activities.Feeling Tired All the Time Fortunately, there are natural ways to get a lift in energy. Whether they are quick fixes that work in the short-term, or lifestyle habits that help you to have longer-lasting energy with longer term benefits, here are top 6 natural energy boosters. 1.Increase your magnesium. magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in our body, including baking glucose down into energy. This means that low magnesium levels can have a very quick impact on our energy levels, causing them to drop.  Magnesium rich food includes spinach, chard, bananas, almonds, Avocado, etc. You can also try taking an Epsom salt bath which not only relaxes your muscles but will make you sleep better at night. 2.Start your day with Lemon water. Lemon-juice is packed with electrolytes like magnesium and potassium, which are essential for energy production. Squeeze juice out of half a lemon and add it to 150 ml of warm water. Add a pinch of salt and drink it first thing in the morning to start your day off with an energy boost. 3.Get plenty of sleep each night. While you sleep, your body repairs itself and the brain restores its energy supply so that you can wake up in the morning feeling ready for the day. Depriving yourself of sleep can drain your body because sleep acts like a charger that charges your brain cells and replenishes your energy levels. • Adults typically need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night. • To sleep better, try having a warm glass of milk with a pinch of turmeric powder before bedtime. 4.Get more Exercise. Physical activity is a known energy booster, and can also help you get a better night's sleep. Physical activity releases ‘happy hormones’ called endorphins. Endorphins helps in elevating the mood and regulation of your appetite, all of which can help to boost your energy levels. 5.Drink plenty of water. Inadequate water consumption can lead to dehydration, which causes fatigue and feelings of low-energy. Help fight fatigue by staying hydrated throughout the day. • Experts recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water each day to stay properly hydrated. 6.Laugh! Laughter is so important in this stressful world. A good belly laugh can raise your blood pressure and boost your heart rate. This means more oxygen-rich blood travelling through your brain and your body, and a quick boost of positive energy. It isn't nice to feel drained, but often it's a vicious cycle. We feel too tired to exercise or eat properly, which only saps our vitality more. The best advice? Use those last traces of energy to get up, have a drink of water and eat some energy food. Go for a quick ten-minute walk, have a stretch, and you'll feel a whole lot better.

8 Plants That Repel Mosquitoes and Other Insects Naturally
 
03:24
No one likes mosquitoes, but not everyone likes using store-bought products, which often contain harmful chemicals. Fortunately, there are a number of plants you can add to your garden and yard to naturally and safely repel mosquitoes. Continue Watching to learn about the many ways in which plants can be used to keep mosquitoes away from your living environment. 1.Grow catnip in your yard if you don't mind cats.  Some people find that catnip is even better at repelling mosquitoes than chemicals. Best of all, catnip is safe. It can even be grown next to plants that typically attract mosquitoes as a deterrent. However, keep in mind catnip will attract cats into your yard. 2.Lemon Balm. The green leaves of lemon balm have the scent of lemon with a hint of mint, which should be no surprise as it’s a member of the mint family. Not only does it offer lots in the way of healing properties, it’s known for warding off mosquitoes while also attracting important pollinators like butterflies and bees. 3.Citronella. While citronella candles are often laden with chemicals, the citronella plant can be grown in your garden for mosquito control. The plant carries the fragrance of citronella in its foliage, and when a leaf is crushed and rubbed onto the skin, the aroma is very pleasant, yet it helps to naturally repel those mosquitoes. 4.Basil. As one of the most pungent of herbs, basil makes an outstanding natural mosquito repellent, giving off a scent without the leaves having to be crushed or touched. Plus, basil can be used in a wide range of dishes and for a variety of reasons. 5.Lavender. Most of us love the smell of lavender, but few realize that it not only offers that fabulous scent, and helps promote a relaxing, calming sensation, but it can keep those tiny invaders from ruining your outdoor dinner party. The pleasant aroma of lavender is offensive to mosquitoes and is best harnessed by planting it in the garden, or in pots situated near doors, windows and entertainment areas. 6.Garlic. While eating garlic-filled foods won’t repel mosquitoes growing garlic can do the trick. Planting it not only helps to deter the nasty rascals, but you’ll have your own supply of vampire repellent if you believe in that sort of thing anyway. Simply add some garlic to your vegetable garden or flowerbed. 7.Geranium. Scented geraniums are yet another popular mosquito repelling plant recommended by countless gardeners. The lemon scented type of geranium is most effective, as it’s similar to citronella, which as mentioned previously, is one of the best for keeping the pests away. Geraniums also have especially gorgeous blooms that can make for an incredibly attractive decorative piece. 8.Rosemary. This gorgeous flowering plant is most commonly used to flavor dishes, but it can also serve as an outstanding mosquito repellent amongst a number of other fantastic uses. You can keep it indoors or out, just be sure it gets full sun.

When will i get my first period- Signs your first period is coming
 
03:23
Please Subscribe! ▶ https://goo.gl/ksfh7M When will i get my first period: Waiting for your first-period is a weird time. You're probably excited and impatient for it to start (especially if some of your friends have started theirs) but also a little nervous or scared about what it will be like. The best-way to get over any stresses or worries is to be prepared and know exactly what to expect. While there's no way to know exactly when you will get your first-period, there are a few signs that you can start looking out for. 1.Look for breast growth or tenderness. One of the first signs that you're beginning puberty is breast growth and tenderness. • Your breasts may grow very quickly or very slowly; it varies from person to person. One breast may even grow faster than the other, but this is normal, so don't-worry. They should even out as time goes on. 2.Look for hair-growth. Another sign that you've hit-puberty and your period is on its way is the growth of hair on your pubic-area and under your arms. This is known as "pubic-hair" and is usually coarser and darker in color than the hair on your head. You may also start to grow finer and lighter hair on your arms and legs. 3.Look for discharge. You may start to notice a white, yellow-tinted or green-tinted discharge in your underwear in the six months leading up to your period. The discharge may become heavier or more noticeable in the week leading up to your first-period, so watch out for it! 4.Look for acne. Acne can occur at any time, so it is not necessarily a sign that your period is coming. However, if you notice a sudden increase in the amount of acne you have over a short-period of time, it may mean that you will get your period in the next few days. 5.Notice cramps. You may experience cramping in your stomach or back or a bloated feeling in your stomach right before and/or during your-period. These symptoms can range from mild to severe, and they may not be the same every-month. • If you experience severe cramps that interfere with your daily activities, you may want to treat them with an over-the-counter pain reliever. Exercise and heating pads can also help reduce your cramps 6.Watch out for moodiness. Some girls also experience emotional changes in the days leading-up to their periods. It is different for everyone, but you might feel unusually-sad, angry, or irritable. These feelings will typically go-away in a few-days. 7.Don't be nervous. While all of this may seem a bit overwhelming, there's really no need to panic. Getting your period is a normal part of growing-up. • Try to remember that it's a completely normal, natural thing and is completely manageable once you get the hang of it! • If you're still feeling anxious, try talking to a trusted older female like your mom, a big-sister, or the school-nurse. They've all been through it before and will have plenty of advice and information on what you can expect.

Believe It Or Not, This Can Grow Tons Of Potatoes in a Trash Bag
 
02:43
Potatoes are a nutritious and delicious starchy tuber, and they're a source of potassium, fiber, protein, vitamins C and B6, and iron. There are lots of ways you can eat potatoes, but they always taste best when they're fresh, especially when you grow them yourself. Growing potatoes in a trash bag is practically a foolproof way to grow potatoes and it only takes a few easy steps to do it. Step 1. One week before planting, place your seed potatoes in a warm spot. When sprouts that are about one-quarter-inch to one-half-inch form, they’re about ready to plant. Cut large seed potatoes into chunks that are approximately two inches wide. Each piece should have at least two sprouts. After cutting the seed potatoes, allow them to sit at room temperature for three days. Step 2. Using a pair of scissors, cut a few drainage holes in the bottom of a 30-gallon plastic trash bag. Roll the sides of the bag down and fill it with about one-third potting soil. Now, place the trash bag in an area of your garden that gets full sun. Step 3. To plant your seed potatoes, first, dust them with agricultural sulfur to protect them against fungal disease. Plant them by burying them with the eyes pointed up about two inches deep in the soil. Water thoroughly. Step 4. When your potato plants are six to eight inches tall, add more soil and straw to the bag. There should be just enough soil so that the top few leaves are poking through it. As they continue to grow, keep unrolling the trash bag and adding more soil accordingly. They should stay well watered, but not soggy. • Now the fun part: harvest time. One clue that your potatoes are about ready for harvesting is that the leaves will yellow and the foliage will die back. At this point, you should stop watering and simply leave them alone for a few weeks so that the skins toughen up. To harvest, slit open the side of the bag and release the potatoes. You can start few other batches at regular interval to enjoy continuous harvest. Growing your own potatoes is not only fun but you’ll know exactly what went into your potatoes at every stage. Along with Trash bags, Potatoes Are Also grown in barrels, buckets, commercial growing bags and even in cardboard boxes.

Never Throw Away Lemon Peels, This Is How To Reuse Them Again
 
03:18
Next time you eat an orange or a grapefruit, or squeeze a lemon or a lime, save the peels! There are so many ways to use these peels. Lemon peel contains 5-10 times more vitamins than the juice itself, including vitamins C, A, beta-caroten, calcium, magnesium and potassium. This is what you can do with your lemon peels. 1.Coffee Cup Stain Remover. Put some lemon peel into a coffee stained mug, add some warm water and allow to sit for a few hours. Pour away and then scrub and the coffee stains should disappear! 2.Microwave Cleaner. This is a really simple natural microwave cleaner. Add some lemon peels to a microwave safe bowl filled halfway with water. Heat the water on full power in the microwave for five minutes giving it time to boil and the steam to condense inside the microwave. Safely remove the bowl and wipe away the residue with a towel. 3.Clean your tea kettle or coffee pot. To clean mineral deposits in your tea kettle: Fill the kettle with water and add a handful of thin slices of lemon peel. Bring it to a boil then turn off the heat. Let is sit for an hour, drain, and rinse well. 4.Citrus Zest. Using a fine grater or zester grate the citrus peels to create a fine zest. This zest can be used to add flavor to all sorts of dishes, and is great for use in baking. You can even freeze it to keep for later. 5.Lemon Olive Oil. This is a super simple way to add citrusy flavor to olive oil. Simply add 2-3 tablespoons of finely grated lemon zest to a cup of extra virgin olive oil, place in a glass jar and allow to stand for two weeks, shaking occasionally. Pour the oil into a strainer and discard the zest and you’ll be left with delicious lemon flavored oil. 6.Deodorize the garbage disposal. Use lemon peels to deodorize the garbage disposal and bring that amazing citrus smell to your kitchen. Fake lemon cleaners have nothing on the real thing. Simply put a peel or two down the disposal, flip the switch on with the water running, and done. 7.Make a scented humidifier. If your home suffers from dry heat in the winter, you can put lemon peels in a pot of water and simmer on the lowest stove-top setting to humidify and scent the air. 8.Citrus Vinegar Cleaner. Vinegar is an incredible natural cleaner but has a pungent smell that not many people like. Infusing citrus peels in the vinegar gives a fresh aroma that masks the nasty smell and adds extra cleaning properties!  9.Trash Can Freshener. Throw some lemon peels into your trash can to kill bad odors and freshen up. And 10.Freshen your Fridge. Place a lemon peel or two inside your fridge to absorb smells and bring a bright citrus scent inside your fridge. Lemons have amazing benefits so why not grow some lemons.

6 Amazing Things That Happen When You Eat Kimchi Everyday
 
03:36
Consuming fermented foods like kimchi can be an important part of good health, particularly when it comes to gut-health, which is said to be the foundation of physical, emotional and mental well-being. Fermented foods are foods that have gone through a process of Lacto-fermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food creating lactic-acid. This process preserves the food while creating beneficial enzymes, B-Vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids and a variety of probiotic strains. Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish made up of a fermented blend of cabbage, garlic, chili peppers, scallions and other spices that can take on sour, salty and spicy flavors depending on the particular recipe. So why should you start adding kimchi to your diet? Here’s a closer look at the many reasons.

Colon Cleanse at Home | weekend remedy to Remove Tons of Toxins from your Body
 
03:32
colon is responsible for removing any remaining food in your body once all the nutrients have been absorbed. You depend on your colon to help regulate your bowel-movements and your digestive-system The need for colon cleansing is based on the theory that undigested meat and other foods, medications, and chemical or substances that we ingest cause a buildup of mucus in the colon. Over-time, this accumulation of mucus produces toxins which circulate throughout the body through the bloodstream, ultimately poisoning the body Before starting any colon cleansing treatment, ask your doctor for instructions, especially if you are taking any medications or suffering from any health condition 1.Water The best thing you can do for colon cleansing is drink a lot of water. It is important to drink at least 10-12 glasses of water a day. This will help your body flush out the harmful toxins and waste in a natural way 2.Lemon-Juice Lemons are good for the digestive-system because they have antioxidant properties and are full of Vitamin-C. For this reason, lemon-juice is great for colon cleansing. Mix the juice of one lemon, a pinch of sea-salt, and a little honey in a glass of lukewarm water. Drink this mixture in the morning on an empty stomach. This will give you more energy, better bowel-movement, and better skin condition. 3.Apple-Juice Another great thing for colon cleansing is fresh apple-juice. If you drink apple juice all the time, it can help bowel-movements, break down toxins, and boost the health of the liver and the digestive-system 4.Yogurt Eating fresh yogurt all the time is a good way to keep the colon healthy. Because yogurt is a probiotic food, it can bring good bacteria into the gut and help digestion. It can also fight inflammatory bowel disease. This is especially true of yogurts that have live and active cultures.  5.Aloe Vera Aloe-Vera is known for killing toxins and acts as a laxative. This makes it a great colon cleanser. Aloe-Vera gel can also treat other health problems, like headaches, skin infection, diarrhea, gastric pain, and constipation.  Add the juice of one lemon to fresh Aloe-vera gel and put the mixture in the blender to make a few ounces of smooth-juice. Drink it a few times a day for a few days. 6.Ginger Ginger is a common ingredient that can lessen bloating, help the colon work properly, and keep it free from waste and bad toxins. It helps digestion by making the digestive juices flow. You can use ginger in any form, such as grated, as a juice, or as cut up pieces for colon cleansing 7.Fiber-rich Foods Eating foods that are full of fiber will also help cleanse the colon of bad-toxins. Fiber will keep the stool soft and help bowel-movement, which helps the body force out waste products. Foods that are full of fiber will also get rid of any kind of intestinal problem. There is a lot of fiber in cereals, whole grains, nuts, beans and seeds.  NOTE: The materials and the information contained on Natural ways channel are provided for general and educational purposes only and do not constitute any legal, medical or other professional advice on any subject matter.

8 Foods That Have More Iron Than Meat
 
03:09
Whether you’re a lifelong vegetarian or are actively transitioning to a non-meat diet, a common concern is making sure you still consume plenty of iron. According to the National Institutes of Health, the recommended dietary allowances of iron for adults is 8-15 mg per day While meat is often at the top of the list of recommended sources of iron, there are plenty of non-meat options that contain the same amount of iron, or more, than meat. 1.Spinach. Dark leafy greens, especially spinach, provide a powerhouse of iron. Three cups of spinach contain about 18 mg of iron—that's more than an 8-ounce steak! You can meet your daily recommended dietary allowances of iron with just one hearty spinach salad. 2.Broccoli. Not only is broccoli jam-packed with iron and other key nutrients like vitamin K and magnesium, it’s also high in vitamin C, which helps encourage iron absorption in the body. 3.Bok Choy. Whether you steam or sauté this tasty Chinese cabbage, you’ll be getting a healthy dose of vitamin A, in addition to 1.8 mg of iron per cup.  4.Swiss Chard Just one cup of Swiss chard has 4 mg of iron, more than a 6-ounce hamburger. Swiss chard also contains valuable nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, C, and K, and B folates. 5.Baked Potato One large baked potato contains nearly three times the amount of iron as a 3-ounce serving of chicken. Top it with Greek yogurt (a high-protein substitute for sour cream), steamed broccoli, and a bit of melted cheese for a tasty weeknight dinner. 6.Legumes. Legumes are a group of plants that include beans, peas, peanuts, and any other dry fruit that is contained in a pod or shell that can also be consumed. Legumes tend to be very high in iron, with hyacinth beans containing 5 mg of iron per ½ cup serving and winged beans containing 4 mg of iron per ½ cup serving. Green beans, white beans, and lima beans all have at least 2 mg of iron per serving. 7.Sesame Seeds Just one tablespoon of sesame seeds contains 1.3 mg of iron. And it's super simple to incorporate them into your diet, too. Sprinkle sesame seeds over a salad for added flavor and crunch or mix them into a dressing, sauce, or salsa before pouring over a dish.  And 8. Lentils Just one cup of lentils has more iron than an 8-ounce steak. Lentils are also a solid source for dietary fiber, potassium, and protein. You can add lentils to your salad, or try soup—make it in bulk, then freeze the leftovers for later.  NOTE: The materials and the information contained on Natural ways channel are provided for general and educational purposes only and do not constitute any legal, medical or other professional advice on any subject matter.

Your Fruit Trees Will Produce 10 times More Fruits if You Do This
 
03:16
If you’ve done everything you can and you still aren’t getting the yields you want, try some of these tips to boost your garden’s health and increase the amount of fruit your trees and bushes produce. 1.Go with Dwarfs. If you don’t want to wait several years to get fruit from your garden, consider planting dwarf varieties of your favorite trees.  Dwarfs don’t grow as tall or as wide as a full-size tree so they begin to bear fruit within the first 2-3 years. These smaller trees also don’t require as much space, making them perfect for gardeners who want to grow their own fruit but don’t have a lot of land. 2.Prune as Needed. Fruit-trees ideally need to be trained in their first few years of growth into the shape you want them to maintain throughout their productive lives.  Pruning should be done at the end of winter, before the tree comes out of dormancy. 3.Root-Suckers and Water-Sprouts. it is important to recognize that not all growth is good-growth. The production of flowers and fruit require a huge investment of nutrients and energy from your plants so you want to be certain that these resources aren’t being wasted where they aren’t needed. Root-suckers and water sprouts are two such wastes. New shoots that grow from the rootstock of a grafted fruit tree are known as root-suckers. These growths often look like a new plant that has taken root at the base of the existing parent. On the other hand, Water-sprouts are vertical shoots that grow straight-up from the established limbs of trees. While these growths aren’t nearly as undesirable as root-suckers, they can still be a waste of nutrients if they aren’t properly controlled. 4.Encourage Pollination Among your native plants, make sure something is blooming each season. Beneficial animals like bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, and bats are a few of the top-pollinators. For this reason, it is important to keep your garden hospitable for wildlife.  Avoid overuse of pesticides which can kill beneficial-insects. 5.Know Your Soil. Plants are a lot like people in that different varieties and species have different tastes.  It is important to know what balance of nutrients and trace minerals is best for each plant. Soil-pH can also play a big part in maximizing fruit yields. If you aren’t sure what kind of soil you have, it’s always better to test samples from around your trees and shrubs.  Once you know what’s missing, you can amend the soil to boost future fruit-production. 6.Harvest Everything. This is perhaps the easiest advice to follow when it comes to growing successful fruit trees.  Still, it bears mentioning.  Unharvested fruit left-on the branch at the end of the season actually signals to the tree or bush that it made too much that-year. During the next growing season, the plant will actually produce less as a result.  So make sure to pick-all of the fruit that your garden grows and let your plants know that you just can’t get enough!

How to Change the color of your hydrangeas like magic
 
03:03
Hydrangeas, the popular garden shrub with delicate flowers in pinks, whites and blues, is more fascinating than it first appears. Why? Because the blossoms on this beautiful plant have the ability to dramatically change color. Maybe you’ve already noticed a perplexing color change in your own shrubs and couldn’t figure out the reason. Well, the secret behind their chameleon-like qualities is pretty simple – it’s down to the pH of the soil. And, now you know that, the ability to change hydrangeas to suit your garden is well within your control. It’s no more difficult than a school science experiment, although it does require a little more dedication and patience. If you want to change from pink to blue, you’ll have it a little easier than those who want to switch from blue to pink. However, if you have white or cream hydrangeas, sorry – you’re stuck with them, their color can’t usually be altered. If you’re lucky, at the end of the season you might see a little pink tinge but that’s about it. Changing Hydrangeas from Pink to Blue. To Change hydrangeas from pink to blue you’ll need to make your soil more acidic. This enables the aluminum in the soil to be released to your flowers, helping them take on a blue hue. Firstly, check the pH of your soil to see how easy it will be to lower to the required level – you’ll be looking at a pH of around 5.2 to 5.5 for blue blooms. If your soil’s pH is pretty high, you might be better off accepting your pretty pink blooms. Otherwise, you can acidify the soil by adding certain substances to it. While there are special products on the market that lower pH, a natural way is always the best. Using an organic mulch will help acidify the soil, and is also quite beneficial for microbial life and improving the quality of your soil. Try one made of pine bark, pine needles, sawdust, citrus peels, vegetable peels or coffee grounds. If you’re seeing no results the following year Add a tablet of aluminum sulfate to the watering can used for watering the hydrangea. This will result in blue flowers. Changing Hydrangeas from Blue to Pink. Changing from blue to pink means you’ll need to stop aluminum in the soil from being available to the hydrangeas. By all accounts, this is a little more difficult than going from pink to blue, but it can be done! You’ll need to raise the pH level to prevent the roots taking up the aluminum. Aim for a pH of about 6.0 to 6.2. While conventional methods recommend using lime to slowly raise the pH over a few months, natural options like ground crab or oyster shells, crushed eggshells or hardwood ashes are also very effective.

7 Warning Signs You Are Not Drinking Enough Water
 
03:49
We’ve all heard that the human body is primarily composed of water and that we need to consume a certain amount in order to survive. Your muscles and kidneys are composed of 73% water; your blood is composed of 83% water; your lungs are 90% water and your brain is made-up of 76% water.  We lose water when we breathe and daily through urine and sweat so replenishment is crucial. Here are 7 Warning Signs You Are Not Drinking Enough Water. 1.Your Urine is Dark Yellow This is often the first sign that you are not drinking enough water. Generally, urine should be a light yellow-amber color. When a person does not consume enough-water, the kidneys excrete a “higher concentration of waste products in the urine, including dead blood-cells, toxins, proteins and other products that need to be removed from the body”, resulting in darker-urine. 2.Your Urine Output is Reduced Most people urinate between 6-7 times within a 24-hour period. When you don’t drink enough water, there is less-fluid available to replace the fluids being excreted from the body. The kidneys attempt to retain as much fluid as possible to prevent dehydration. If you urinate less than 6-times a day, consider your water-intake and increase if necessary. 3.Constipation Dehydration is one of the most common causes of constipation, and constipation can often be resolved by increasing water-intake. If you are not fully hydrated, your body will try to absorb water from wherever it can, including your colon.  A sufficient amount of water in the large intestine is crucial for soft, easy-to-pass stools. Naturally, a lack of water will lead to harder-stools that are difficult to pass. 4.Thirst and Dry Mouth Believe it or not, feeling thirsty for water is a sign that you are already slightly dehydrated.  A dry-mouth often occurs with thirst and signifies that the mucus membranes in the body need hydration. The only way to resolve thirst and a dry-mouth is to drink water throughout the day. 5.Fatigue According to a 2011 study, mild-dehydration can cause fatigue, tiredness and low-energy. When you’re dehydrated and the blood-volume decrease, the heart has to work harder to push oxygen and nutrients through the body. Next-time you start to feeling tired, skip the coffee (which is dehydrating!) and drink a glass of water instead. Coffee, tea, soda and sports drinks are not substitutes for water. 6.Joint-Pain Water acts as a lubricant to the joints, allowing two bones to slide over each other as the joint-moves. When the body doesn’t receive enough water, the joint becomes nutrient deficient leading to damage of the cartilage-cells. If you are chronically-dehydrated, your cells will eventually reach a tipping-point and the cartilage will degenerate beyond repair.  If you suffer from joint-pain, be mindful of your water intake and increase if necessary. 7.Weak Immune-System Dehydration increases the concentration of toxins in the blood, which can weaken the immune-system. Optimal-hydration is essential in assisting in the elimination of any illness byproducts and helps the immune-system ward off infection.

You Will Never Throw Away Eggshells After Watching This
 
03:32
Please Subscribe! ▶ https://goo.gl/ksfh7M You Will Never Throw Away Eggshells After Watching This: The U.S. food industry accumulates 150,000 tons of eggshell waste every-year. Chicken eggshells, which are the primary type of eggshell waste accounted for, are made up of 93 to 97 percent calcium-carbonate, in addition to calcium, nitrogen and phosphoric acid. These nutrients make eggshells an ideal choice for garden use. Here are 6 reasons why you should not throw away eggshells 1.Recycle eggshells to grow seedlings. Eggshells can be used to grow small seedlings indoors. When the seedling is ready to be planted outside, place the shell and seedling directly in the ground. The eggshell will decompose over-time and help fertilize the soil. 2.Use eggshells to improve compost. Gardeners frequently add lime to compost to correct acidity problems in garden soil. Lime is made-up of calcium-carbonate, which is the main nutrient in eggshells. Rather than purchase lime, recycle eggshells to amend compost. • Crush eggshells and add them directly to the compost. To decrease the decomposition time, dry the eggshells in an oven and grind them using a blender before adding them to the compost. 3.Recycle eggshells as fertilizer for the garden. Eggshells contain calcium, phosphorus, sulfur and potassium, which help make plants healthy. • Rinse eggshells. Allow the eggshells to dry, and place them in a bowl or large container. Grind the eggshells using a pestle, which is a hand-held tool used for mashing or grinding substances. If you do not have a pestle, grind the eggshells in a blender. The smaller the eggshell pieces, the faster they will break down in the soil. Add the shells to your garden and mix them into the soil. 4.Add eggshells to the bottom of garden containers and pots. The eggshells will add calcium to the soil in the containers, provide drainage and deter cutworms and slugs. • Place crushed eggshells in the bottom of empty pots before adding soil. Do not grind the eggshells, but crush them by hand so the shells are in pieces. 5.Use recycled eggshells to deter snails and slugs. The abrasive, sharp edges of the eggshells keep snails and slugs from crossing the shells to get to the plants. • Crush eggshells into pieces. Do not grind the shells, but crush the shells by hand. The shells should have sharp, rough edges. Scatter the crushed eggshells around plants affected by snails or slugs. For best-results, place the eggshells in a circular-pattern around the plants 6.Treat Irritated Skin: Eggshells are sharp. As such, you would think that rubbing them on your skin would irritate the skin, not heal it. And while it's true that a handful of eggshells rubbed directly on your arm would not feel good, a treatment made of shells and apple-cider-vinegar can help treat inflamed or cut skin. Simply leave some crushed-up eggshells in a bowl with vinegar until the shells dissolve (it will take a day or two), and then rub it on your skin and start feeling better! Eggshells are high in calcium, and calcium is a time-honored remedy for skin problems from acne to rashes.

7 Micro Greens That Can be Harvested in few Days
 
03:27
Microgreens or “vegetable confetti” are greens that are harvested just a few weeks after propagation. Like sprouts, micro greens are easy to grow in your kitchen or beside a sunny window in your home. Unlike sprouts, micro greens are grown in soil. You can grow herbs, salad greens, vegetables and edible flowers as micro greens. Some micro greens can be harvested in just a couple of weeks, whereas others will take a month to grow. Here are some popular microgreens anyone can grow indoors. 1.Beet: You can get beets that give microgreens with red and purple stems. Getting ready in about 15 days, they are such a delight to grow and to use in any dish to add visual appeal. Bull’s Blood and Detroit Dark Red are popular Beet microgreens varieties. 2.Garden cress: Cress sprouts are a staple in the egg and mayonnaise sandwiches of the English. The micro greens with a peppery taste can be used in soups and salads as well. They are harvested within two weeks of sowing. American cress and Upland cress also has a similar taste and flavor. 3.Mustards: You have several mustards to choose from besides the regular green ones. The Osaka Purple and Red Giant give greens with purplish stems and reddish leaves respectively. Irrespective of the color, they pack as much pungency as you would expect from mustards. Growing 1 ½ to 2 inches, they become ready for harvest in 14-16 days when the first true leaves appear in most of the plants. 4.Radish: One of the quickest growing among micro greens, they can be harvested within 12 days of sowing the seeds. Sango, Red Arrow, Japanese Daikon, and Triton are popular for their contrasting leaf and stem colors. 5.Onion/chives These are monocots and have a grass-like appearance, with the first leaf of each sprout tipped with the empty seed coat. They take a month to reach the micro green stage. If they are harvested by snipping off just the top 1-2 inches, you can continue to get a few more harvests. Wheatgrass is another example of monocot micro greens that can give more than one harvest. 6.Orach The bright red color of the Fire Red variety of Orach is extremely striking, but it tastes rather mild, like its relative spinach. 7.Kohlrabi:  Another member of the brassica group ready to be harvested in 14 days. The leaves are dark green with light purple stems. Now, On the other hand, carrot, cabbage, broccoli, chard and spinach give milder micro greens and a mixture of them can make a veritable salad on their own. This is your chance to grow some plants that you wouldn’t normally have in your garden. Komatsuna, mizuna, red amaranth and Tatsoi are worth a try if you can source their seeds.

Plants You Can Grow From Cuttings and Leaves That gives excellent Results
 
03:31
Growing new plants from cuttings is a great way to increase your stock in a relatively short time. Rooted cuttings are often sturdier than seedlings, and come to maturity faster, many of them bearing flowers and fruits much earlier than seedlings. Plants grown from cuttings are exact clones of the parent plant, so you know exactly what you’re growing, which is not the case with seed-grown plants. When selecting a stem from the mother-plant, you should look for young, green growth. Young stems will always root better than more mature, woodier stems. Cut just below a node (the joint where a leaf meets the stem) with a sharp pair of scissors. As an added precaution against contamination You could also sterilize them with rubbing alcohol. Plants send out new roots from nodes, so by exposing some of the node's interior, you increase the chances of your new plant sending out a root from that node. While the new plant need leaves to provide energy through photosynthesis, too many leaves will compete with the plant's efforts to send out new roots. Leaving only 2-leaves is a good option. Following plant cuttings give excellent results. 1. Rose. Take 10-inch long hardwood cuttings of pencil thickness in fall and plant out in the chosen location. Water the cuttings thoroughly until winter. 2. Hydrangea. Take 4-inch long tip cuttings carrying 3-4 pairs of leaves. Remove the lowest pair and trim the stem closer to the node. Insert into moist rooting medium and cover with plastic sheet. You can trim the larger-leaves by 3/4th to reduce water-loss through evaporation. 3.Geranium. 6-8 inches long cuttings can be rooted, but it helps if the parent plant is allowed to wilt slightly prior to taking the cuttings. Withdraw water for a week and then take the cuttings 12-hours after watering the plant. The rehydrated stems take root more easily. 4.Snake-plant. 2-3 inch sections of the leaf can be used to make new plants. You can thus make a large number of plants from one parent plant. The only problem with this method of propagation is that the new plants will not carry the original variegation. Sections of rhizomes should be planted to retain the variegation. 5.Rex Begonia. All you need to grow these big-leaved beauties is a single leaf. Make a few slashes on the prominent veins on the underside of the leaf and lay it on a moist bed of peat-moss and sharp sand in equal proportions. Weight the leaf down with a few pebbles so that the cut edges remain in contact with the bed. Keep in a warm, well-lit place and watch the new plants appearing at these cut edges. Some of the other popular plants that can be grown from cuttings include: lavender, Comfrey, Philodendrons, Holly, Fuchsia and many others. Almost all herbs can be grown from cuttings and can be even grown in water. Check out my other video on herbs that can be grown in water on your kitchen window-sill.

How To Grow Ton Of Mushrooms Even If You Have No Garden
 
04:16
Mushrooms grow quickly compared to most fruits and vegetables, and don't take up precious space in your garden. Most hobbyists start out with oyster mushrooms because they are the easiest to grow. Mushrooms are a healthy addition to any diet, as they are low in calories and fat, high in fiber, and contain high amounts of potassium and selenium Mushrooms are best grown indoors where the temperature and light conditions can be more readily managed. Things You’ll Need to grow your own oyster mushrooms are: • Straw (Wheat Straw Works Best) • Robust plastic bags, medium or large size • Oyster mushroom spawn (which you can get online or You may need to find your local supplier) • Spray bottle and water Method. Before you begin, wash your hands and clean all your surfaces well. It’s very important to be hygienic when cultivating mushrooms, as you do not want to grow the wrong types of fungi. Once you’ve got all the materials, the first thing you need to do is pasteurize the straw. this essentially means heating the straw in water to around 70-75 degrees Celsius and holding it at that temperature for around 45-60 minutes. Pasteurization kills the bacteria. Before you put the straw in the pot, cut up into small pieces, around 1 to 3 inches in length. Once you’ve pasteurized the straw, take it out of the heating pot with tongs and let it sit in a clean tub while it cools down. It’s important you don’t put the mushroom spawn into the straw until the straw is at room temperature otherwise you will kill the spawn. When the straw has cooled down, pack your robust plastic bags with straw quite tightly, and then distribute some of the mushroom spawn throughout the straw. put about three or four pieces of spawn-covered dowel in each bag. The straw should not be dripping wet, but it should still be damp from the pasteurization. At this stage, sterilize a skewer or a nail by pouring boiling water over it and jab holes in the bags every 3 inches or so. This lets some air in, but not too much. The mouth of the bag should be closed with rubber-band or tread. You now have to find a home for you mushrooms. Keep them out of direct sunlight. They like some indirect light and grows best at around 15-20 degrees Celsius. Now you wait while the mushroom spawn develops into mycelium and begins taking over the entire bag. Mycelium looks a bit like white furry cobwebs, and you should start seeing it develop in the first couple of weeks. It’s important that your bags of straw stay moist, but not dripping wet. spray some water if required. About 4 weeks later the mycelium should have spread across the entire bag of straw and your mushrooms should start forming. cut some slightly larger holes in the bag if necessary. The mushrooms will decide that they want to grow out of one or more of the holes you’ve created, and they’ll usually grow in one or two clusters. Now comes the fun part. The mushrooms essentially double in size every day, so within a week or so you should have good-sized oyster mushrooms. Mist them with water two or three times a day over this period – again, not so they are dripping, just so they are moist. The mushrooms should be harvested while their rims are still curled over a little and pointing downwards. If their rims seem to be turning upward, it’s probably time to harvest. To harvest the mushrooms give them a twist at the base. This ensures that you leave the very bottom of the mushroom still in the bag. You want to leave that part behind as it is needed for the subsequent flushes of mushrooms. If you keep the mushrooms moist and in suitable conditions, you should get three or four flushes of mushrooms, When your bags stop producing, the straw can be used as mulch for the garden. Alternatively, you can distribute some of your straw into new bags of fresh straw and the growing process begins again.
