Garlic for a home made brew to say goodbye to aphids and mites in our veggie garden:

Garlic For A Potion – #Inktober 18

If you want to try the potion too here’s the recipe:

  1. Chop up a bulb of garlic.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of oil
  3. Cover and leave for 24 hours
  4. Add 1 teaspoon of liquid detergent to 1 cup of water
  5. Add water mix to the garlic mix and stir.
  6. Strain into a container and label – this is the concentrate.
  7. AddΒ 1 teaspoon of the concentrate to a litre of water in a spray bottle.
  8. Spray the aphids / mites.

NB I found it hard not to add pen lines to the sketch – another challenge achieved!

        Part of our reluctance to use garlic is because we don’t buy it, and we don’t want to use our delicious homegrown garlic on anything other than our food. πŸ˜‰

        I feel the same way about homegrown garlic! Have to admit I bought a bulb of garlic for the purpose – figured it might even work better than homegrown on the pests πŸ˜‰
