A new use for CDs

CDs for the garden

Have you been getting lots of CDs for online service in the mail? And, have you been tossing them? Not so fast. Today you’ll learn how CDs can save plants and trees. There is something useful you can do with all those free CDs. Instead of tossing them out, drill a hole in the edge of each CD and thread thin wire, twine or dental floss through the hole. Then hang them on your fruit trees. The silvery, flashy surface will scare birds away. You can protect low-lying fruit plants and vegetable gardens, too, by hanging these “digital scarecrows” on coat hangers (bent into hooks) and sticking them in the ground. Got pesky birds? Small critters that nibble? “The answer my friend is blowing in the wind”. And that’s the On The House tip for today.
