Why You Should Place Matches In Your Flower Pots

Dear furiends,a8aa0e5d0847c3763aa67dcfa289862a

I discovered this intriguing information about matches at http://gardeningsoul.com/you-should-place-mathces/ They correctly stated that “Indoor plants not only leave the environment more comfortable, they also improve air quality and increase the amount of oxygen in the room. Unfortunately, plants don’t always do as well as we would like, even if you try really hard to take care of them. Even when you water them regularly, they still look sad and wilted.

“Sound familiar?

“Parasites and pests are normally to blame, and unfortunately they’re not always easy to spot with the naked eye. Some people resort to chemicals, but then, you could end up damaging the plants even more.

“Fortunately, there is a very simple trick that can improve the appearance of your plants quickly. Forget about the aggressive chemical products.

“All you need is a simple, easy to find box of matches.

“Take some of them and stick them in the dirt surrounding the plant. Make sure you bury the head of the match in the soil. Your plant will recover quickly.Purr&palm

“The reason is in the head of the matches, more specifically of what they are made of. The phosphorus and the sulfur will get rid of the bugs in a safe and reliable way, and your plant will be able to breathe again.

“You won’t have to buy poisons and chemicals to get rid of them. It’s not always necessary to use aggressive products to solve this type of problem. Sometimes the solution is quite simple. And best of all you can reuse the matches later!

Dear Furiends,20190205_101614

Katsu and I have been busy-busy with pre-garden projects. In other meows, planning our spring garden then starting seeds in these cute little peat pots. I am confident that by the time water is added, I shall be dirty enough to merit a bath!

Baths are always a bonus of taking up gardening. 20190205_101644

Meanwhile, Katsu has managed to stay spotless. Oh, and that strange blueish thing outside the catio is Saphera’s old Bumble (it was 3 years old, not the new one she got last Christmas)… I guess Saphera figured it had endured a long, hard life and deserved time off in the garden…. I will also add that she is now hauling around her Dino Dental Chew toy instead of the new Bumble, so I’m not sure if I’m correct about her intentions.20190205_155726

Our furiend, Angel (below), is still alive and well in freezing Ohio…. Looks like he has a very comfy spot under Ms. Cherie’s humongous piano, but Saphera’s corner of the sofa looks even more comfy to me!

Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Toy

20190205_155653Saphera LOVES her new Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Toy. (So does Katsu… I’ve informed him it’s for dogs, not cats, but since Saphera is our mother-figure, he simply looked at me  as if I was daft.) Saphera carries her toys everywhere and since this is chicken flavored, she likes it even more, which is why I put loved in capitals.

Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Toy was designed to hold up to tough chewers. It gives dogs something to sink their teeth into, while the texture is great for dental health— two benefits in a cute dino shape. The rounded nubs help to clean their teeth and freshen their breath as they gnaw.

20190205_155727Other Benefits:
Long-lasting non-edible dog toy made for powerful chewers to prevent destructive chewing.
Extreme chewing style keeps dogs busy, happy, and satisfied with its savory chicken flavor that lasts as long as the toy.
Action cleaning nubs help clean teeth, reduce tartar, control plaque, and massage gums.
Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Toy comes in Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus or T-Rex shape (chosen at random).
Made with a tough, durable nylon and recommended by veterinarians.

Chewy boxes are the BEST! (both the actual box & content.) You can get supplies for your fur-babies and non-furry pets from Chewy and they always have great prices, as well as a wide selection of products, plus they provide speedy free shipping for orders of $49.00 or more. They also have reasonable shipping rates for smaller orders. You can set up an auto ship so you never run out of your pets favorites (you can skip, cancel or delay these, too – Chewy’s customer Service is tops). BTW, they are speedy, too. I don’t think I’ve ever had to wait more than 3 days after I placed and order, but with this purrticular order, my box arrived in less than 24 hours! My staff likes the fact that supplies, meds and toys for us fur-babies arrives at their front door, so it’s simple for them and Chewy prices are often less than at our local store. Can’t beat that!
