|These tiny creepy worms!|
|Burning old art and paper|
After losing so many of them...over the years with terrace container gardening...luckily my anger and outburst of burning my old paper paintings was a blessing in disguise!
With obsessively painting there were so many , and as I continued to paint, there was less space ,so I burned them, and with my love for symbols, just did not want to throw the ashes. I had read about people adding mulch, newspapers to soil for gardening but never tried this till a few years back.And it works!
It works wonders!
|making a mushy mixture of ashes|
1) Tear the papers in tiny pieces, this helps them burn faster. This tip helps for the final product you get as tiny pieces bring a great mixture.
2) Avoid glossy magazines
3) Burn in space that is free from hazard too life. See that children are safe and protected and also if they see you do very carefully explain about risks of fire.
4) Do not put dry ashes in plant containers.It will form a layer over the soil and rot. also the plants will not get water due to this layer and they will wilt , and don't say I didn't warn you!
5) Always make a mixture of ashes , mix some water and make this a mushy , more of a liquidy mixture and not thick dough.
