Happy National Oatmeal Day!
Happy National Oatmeal Day! Well known for its fantastic fiber, antioxidants, and nutrients, oatmeal provides great health benefits. Oatmeal can also be an easy, inexpensive addition to your garden care routine. When establishing new plants, oatmeal can help to stimulate root growth which ensures a strong and healthy plant. You can also sprinkle it around already established plants to provide a source of iron for the soil. Oatmeal can also act as an aid for pests such as snails or slugs in your garden. It will attract them to devour the oatmeal which will swell inside their tiny stomachs and well, you know what happens next. Be careful not to be too generous when sprinkling the oatmeal, as too much can attract the wrong critters such as rodents.
Happy Monday everyone!
