Organic Gardening - Flowers, Fruits, Vegetables



So I chopped down the offending alder, to give Stanley some more sun.  I composted the base of the trunk, and then we had torrential rain yesterday, so he can't complain about lack of water.  Sun today.  I looked up some organic remedies for rust, and one of them was 2 crushed aspirin tablets in a quart of water.  I don't know what a quart is (I'm Canadian) so I just filled up my 1 litre spray bottle.  Sprayed it all over.  I think I may be too late, but anyway ... we can but try.  Here's a picture of the poor thing. Fingers crossed.

Thank you for this! I guess I could have just googled it. But it's handy to know. Cheers! :)

Most juice pitchers & measuring cups (of that size) here have both quarts & liters, so I knew they were close. I did have to Google the exact conversion.
