Don’t Pitch the Pop! Pour It in the Plants!

Happy Labor Day! There’s nothing like a holiday weekend to get us out of the house enjoying the unofficial end of summer. So invite your friends and family over for a backyard cookout, and when cleanup time rolls around, treat your garden to the leftovers liquids. Plants appreciate some liquid refreshment every now and then, so instead of pouring leftover drinks down the drain, serve ‘em to a plant instead—that liquid is chock-full of health-giving nutrients! Here’s a list of your garden’s favorite refreshing beverages:

  • Beer
  • Juice
  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Soda pop
  • Whiskey
  • Wine
  • Flavored water

And here’s a picnic for your potted plants that’ll keep ‘em goin’ strong until the end of the growing season.

Mix 2 tablespoons of brewed black coffee, 2 tablespoons of whiskey, 1 teaspoon of fish emulsion, ½ teaspoon of gelatin powder, ½ teaspoon of baby shampoo, ½ teaspoon of ammonia, and a gallon of water in a watering can, and water your potted plants with the mixture once a week to keep them happy, healthy, and full of flowers!
