Spoon Sisters Garden Goodies

The Spoon Sisters is such a fun site.  They have all kinds of interesting gifts and gadgets including a healthy selection of garden-y items.  My favorites are the herb markers but you should check out some of these items as well as the whole site.

I am very intrigued by Trowel and Error: Over 700 Tips, Remedies and Shortcuts for the Gardener.  They describe it as the Heloise for the garden.  Interesting….here is more from the description.

Cure plant viruses with spoiled milk. Steep a natural and effective insecticide out of fresh basil. Place flat stones under squash or melons to hasten ripening. Sprinkle baby powder over seedlings to discourage rabbits. The book is indexed by problem, plant, pest, and solution, and includes a list of tools and common household items — borax, cornmeal, vinegar– that completes the gardener’s arsenal. From urging the reader to take an occasional shower with the houseplants, to giving all-natural gardenside first aid, Trowel and Error is a direct line to the kind of practical wisdom that will benefit every gardener, whether beginner or experienced.

I am adding it to my own wish list.

    I got Trowel and Error as a gift, but I didn’t like the structure of the book much. I didn’t find it easy to find specific info when searching for it, which left me paging through it aimlessly – enjoying the information, yes, but do I remember any of it? Not after setting down and reading the tips for ten minutes, no – the info all blurs together.

    So I’d suggest paging through it before purchasing – you may not like to just amazon it to your home without a closer look.
