Make Colored Sugar
Make your own for pennies! Put white granulated sugar in glass custard cups and add the desired amount of food coloring; mix to distribute color evenly then put in oven on low; stir several times while drying. When completely dry store in sprinkle top spice jars.

Use for Corn Cobs
I feed the squirrels cob corn, and I save the empty cobs. When I plant either flowers, trees, shrubs or my garden, I make sure the hole is deep enough to put 3 or 4 corn cobs in the bottom of the planting hole. This helps hold moisture in for the roots and saves on watering, as the cob absorbs the water.

Scrub Up After Gardening
To scrub yourself off after working, put a bar of soap or soap scraps into the leg cut off of a pair of panty hose. You can hang it near the garden hose so the soap can dry off after it's used. Hang it under the eaves, or on a porch, so the soap will probably not dissolve away quickly.
