Diatomaceous Earth or DE is not a poison and it is 100% organic. It works by getting into insects joints and grinding down their shells and body. DE is a silica that is very sharp to the insects. It is basically the fossilized remains of microscopic sea life. I show you how to use it for your seed starts. The goal is to keep it dry and get the insects to crawl through it.

Join our FB group Grow It Cook It Eat It. While onions are out of season for me, here is how you caramelize your garden onions and make my take on French Onion Soup. Absolutely delicious! I like to keep things simple. Practice now and use your onions later in the year, for soup your family and friends will enjoy.
