Backyard Gardening V. II

Updates and making your own organic pesticide

These photos are rather old and the garden has grown so much since then but I wanted to share the process!

I have been attempting to make my garden as natural and pesticide free as possible. I came across this great organic pesticide recipe that calls for natural ingredients that promise to keep the bugs away.
Warning: this recipe promises also to stink up your house and make your family love you! (note sarcasm)

What you will need:
*An empty 1 gallon milk jug
*A spray bottle
*A funnel
*A piece of cloth (I used a bandana)
*A large pot (1 gallon or more)
*2 small onions (or 1 large)
*1 Jalapeno pepper
*1 clove garlic
*Natural dish soap

You can find the easy to follow directions here

You can follow my process through these photos...

And, some pictures of my herbs and little garden...
