Penny’s Tips

Hi everyone! Penny here and I am starting a new feature called Penny’s Tips.

I will give you a tip of something you can do with a penny. Now please don’t go telling me in the comment section any tips because I already have 11 tips ready and I don’t want to have to go all tortie on you with tortitude.

My first tip is to add some to cut flowers because the copper will act as at as an acidifier preventing the growth of bacteria.

Pennies made before 1982 are made of 95 % copper and those made 1983 and later are mainly zinc with just a light coat of copper.

Please note these dahlias are poisonous to cats so I just posed for this photo and mom put them back in the dining room ( no cats zone) . For the ASPCA  list of more poisonous plants , click here.
