Sometimes I wrap sandwiches in tin foil to send with hubby for his lunches. I knew that he was on the frugal bandwagon for sure when he started bringing the tin foil back with him, commenting “we can probably use this for something”.
Last year, we had kept used tin foil, balled it up, and placed it in our garden beds to help keep birds away. (They don’t like the reflection). We’ll still do that this year, but I also decided to add it to the inside of our mini greenhouse. The greenhouse sits in front of a south facing window and the tin foil helps reflect light to the plants from more than one direction. That helps keep the plants from leaning towards the light and becoming spindly. Just another frugal gardening trick I thought I’d share. 🙂
