Sherri’s Favorite Garden Spray Recipe

Garden Spray Recipe :

Hot pepper flakes ground and ready to use!
Hot peppers ground and ready to use!

1 gallon of water, 3 Tablespoons of hot pepper flakes, 3 drops Thieves dish soap.

Grind your hot peppers (or dried flakes if that is what you have) add the ingredients into a pan and simmer for 15 minutes. Heating the liquid helps to infuse the oils from the hot peppers into the water– making for a stronger spray.  Let the mixture sit for about 24 hours to absorb the juices from the hot pepper flakes – then strain and add a few drops of Thieves dish soap to the gallon of mix.  (This is a must if you want it to stick to the plants).

Spray at night after everything is nice and dry from the sun. Most of the problems have settled in as well by now. Remember though this will kill the good as well as the bad. With that being said,  don’t reach for the spray until you have to. In most cases nature will do its job if you give it time.
