This just goes to show how one little thing you say (or more to the point, write), even in passing, can make its way around the world in a heartbeat. Blogger Cindy McNatt from Dirt du Jour recently posted a little ditty about a tip she read years ago from Jen Vandervoort at Muddy Boot Dreams, another gardening blog.

"Jen discovered that when pleading, begging and negotiating with neighbors who party on the patio until late at night doesn't work, watering your garden with fish emulsion in the evening does. Just a tip to file away for days when youre desperate to have some quiet." Gotta love it!

You heard it here third. Pass it down.
