There’s no natural medicine you can better trust than the kind you grow right in your own backyard. Not sure which plants have medicinal properties or how to take advantage of them? This list of 10 healing herbs from Bless My Weeds will get you going.
Cucamelons: grape-sized watermelons that taste like cucumbers with a tinge of lime. wiki - Vernacular names include mouse melon, Mexican sour gherkin, cucamelon, Mexican miniature watermelon and Mexican sour cucumber
Boiled Eggs: Don't throw out the water you boil your eggs in. It contains tons of calcium plants love. Let water cool and dump it on plants. Save egg shells, rinse them out really well, crumble, then mix in with dirt and/or potting soil before planting.
Sprinkle coffee grounds around your vegetables before you water them, you will be activating slow-release nitrogen that will help them grow faster and fuller. Slugs don't like them either! I put coffee grounds and egg shells in my garden all the time.
