Is there a recipe for organic fungicide?

I am growing Garlic indoors in potting soil, dirt from outside, and coffee grounds. Fungus is growing.  My Hydrogen Peroxide and water mixture is not able to kill it effectively. I'm pretty sure this is common fungus because I worked on the grounds crew at a golf course for a few years.  Is there an organic fungicide or another solution to this problem? Thanks in advance.

Trombone Tree/Shrub Sprayer

We have low water pressure and a hose end sprayer doesn't reach very far.  I have been looking at Trombone Tree Sprayers in gardening magazines and though there must be a cheaper alternative.  Surely something could be made out of PVC and o-rings and some tubing. The sprayer seems to really be some sort of piston pump, kinda like a bicycle pump with a valve that draws water through a hose where the end is placed in a bucket of the liquid you want to spray.  You push the one tube into the other and is sprays about 20-25", kinda the same montion a trombone player uses. Anyone got plans or an idea on how to make this? Thanks in advance Danneauxs

Expiration date of meds?

Finding a beautiful small oak cabinet, with beveled windows, full with a first aid box, some more first aid stuff, and several antibiotics etc. The first aid stuff is fine! The band aids still stick, etc. The antibiotics, and the fungicide expired during the millennium scare.... But then, people store meds in very different circumstances. The warnings are of course based on legal possibilities, like storage in a leaking cabinet on the south section of the mobile home in South Florida of a hyper allergenic patient..., generally not met in most circumstances! Of course many folks will say: DON'T USE IT!! VERY DANGEROUS, ETC.... But I'm sceptical...  Of course big pharma would love me to take it to hazardous waste tomorrow. OK, I don't need these meds.  But suppose someone very poor, like many of my friends in 3rd world countries, got a bad cut, etc. Over there, you have to pay upfront to see a doc, and pay again to get (very common) antibiotics. They phone me. My question: generally speaking, what is the value of expired meds... Would there be a danger, would significant toxic by products be generated, or is the issue mostly a gradual breakdown of the active compound... Which would mean, double dose... Almost everyone has unused meds in their cabinet. This question is very important and the proper answers could result in saving many lives!
