back in the dark ages here Ma used to concoct
various potions to spray on the gardens.
aside from making things stink i don't recall
them being effective for much at all.
i had real negative thoughts about those potions
that used tobacco juice as tobacco mosaic virus
isn't something you want in the gardens.
the sugar in coke was supposed to help feed the
soil bacteria, which in fact it might, but for
$0.40/lb regular sugar granules are a much better
buy if that's what you're going to do with them.
the other trace item of interest in coca cola is
phosphoric acid. can't say it would hurt or help
much at the amounts often recommended to be used.
one of the other commonly recommended things was
cheap beer. we still have an unopened case of beer
in the garage from quite some years ago. i keep
thinking i should open one and dump it in a hole
sometime but then i'd have to herd drunk worms
around... i did make progress on the unopened
beer can front a few weeks ago i did open one loose
one and dumped it out and put the can in the refund
bag. i think we found that one along the road
(some drunk mistakenly threw a full beer out instead
of the empty? dunno. thought it was funny anyways,
$0.10 is $0.10).
i'm glad to say that Ma no longer bothers with
such things and i've not noticed any significant
increase or decrease in bugs of the targetted
kinds that she was after.
