Hair, There and Everywhere …

Real Human Hair ~ today’s donation from my hairdresser friend ~ is really useful in vegetable beds and gardens, I kid you not.

I sun dry them, snip them up to lengths that I can scatter without too much entanglement, and then just spread them all over. It becomes a barrier/repellent to those slimy slugs and snails and provides nitrogen to the plants.  (Some gardeners say it repels rodents but that I can’t vouch for.)

If you are into organic gardening, try it.  Hey, is this recycling or what?!

  2. Next time you cut your children’s hair or go to the hairdresser, you know there’s stuff to collect & use. 😀
