Spring into the season!

USA Weekend (Feb.11-13,2011) offered some "old-time" hints that will help you get ready for summer!

* Grow the perennial herb comfrey (no, I've never heard of it either!) and add it to your garden's compost mix to add lots of fertilizer-friendly nutrients.

* Add a teaspoon of baking soda to your shampoo and massage into your hair, then rinse. This should bring out the natural lighter tones in your hair...great for the summer!

* If you haven't already packed away your sweaters for the year, sprinkle whole cloves over them...this repels moths and they roll right off when you unpack in the fall (has to smell better than cedar or mothballs...ugh!).
