Microwave Bread , Cinnamon to kill ants and Recycled water

Hey guys,

Since this seems new to the community here is the "tips" I said I would post. As for the Microwavable Bread It seems a little strange at first but it falls under the guidelines of "don't knock it until you try it". Friends of mine have thought it was strange have loved it (this by the way is bragging).

If you do try it let me know what you think.

Microwave Bread

2 cups of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 cup of milk
1 egg.

Mix all ingredients together in a glass bowl and stick it in the microwave for 5 minutes or until solid. Eat while hot.

If you like sweeter bread add some more sugar into it.

There are also several recipes similar to this on the internet if you want to check them out.

Cinnamon to kill ants.

I have had success killing small ant mounds by covering a good amount of the mound in cinnamon powder. I don't like using poison around my dogs so a friend of mine turned me to this. Supposely it works by killing the queen so it takes a week or two but after wards the mound is gone and they don't return.


Recycled Water.

Ok not sure if this really qualifies as "recycled" but it's something easy to do which has helped me save some on watering my plants. I keep a small bucket in my kitchen sink and collect any non-soap water in it. Once full I store in a 5 gallon bucket and use it to water my plants. It's pretty simple but it's helped with watering my garden. I also dump any coffee and tea into it since most of my plants enjoy the extra acidity this provides.

I love to garden and have been told by people that they do not save any money really gardening because the amount of money they do save goes back into paying their water bill. Maybe this idea could help someone out.
