DIY: Simple & Stunning Living Succulent Wreath This post is sponsored by McDonald’s. My opinions are my own, especially my opinion that they have the best French Fries, because they totally do. Close your eyes and envision this scenario with me. It’s a random Monday afternoon and you have work to do, yet you are home with your: A. One B. Three C. Heavy Petal » Handmade Garden Projects I’m happy to be taking part in a virtual book tour for Handmade Garden Projects, a new book from Timber Press and author Lorene Edwards Forkner. I had the opportunity to meet Lorene and tour her wonderful Seattle garden last summer, and I was thrilled to see many snippets of Lorene’s very personal and whimsical garden appear in the pages of Handmade Garden Projects. Lorene Edwards Forker’s Lil Loafer hideaway/garden folly – love this idea! Lorene’s garden isn’t perfect—and I’d argue that any garden that can be described as such is therefore disqualified, anyway—but it has HEART. It’s full of charm and wit.
Easy vegetables to grow Planting a garden doesn’t have to be a huge undertaking. But the fear of failure keeps many a gardener-wannabe from spending time and energy on planting backyard crops. Knowing the easy vegetables to grow for your region — in addition to when and where to plant them — is the best way to ensure success. When planning your crops, try to space out the planting of foods that have a short harvest season. An ideal garden will always have something to put on the table, rather than an abundant period and then a dry spell with nothing growing. Some of the easiest garden goods for first timers are yellow squash and zucchini, potatoes, radishes and tomatoes.
DIY Smoker From A 55-Gallon Drum Use a 55-gallon food-grade drum with an open head. (Some drums are treated with epoxy to prevent rust, but meat smoked in such a barrel is toxic.) You can buy a new drum at an industrial-supply store for $150 or less or a used one online for a mere $20. Make sure that the drum and lid are untreated, and buff their insides with a scouring pad or fine sandpaper.

( will looks great with cardboard ) hope and honey: how to make a custom rose trellis when we first moved to our house (three years ago today!), there was a tangled but beautiful rose bush precariously pulled back against the porch with a flimsy and small metal trellis. it did not take long for this mess to spill over the gravel, shortening the driveway by more than half. the thorns grabbed at our clothes each time we rolled our bikes past. we were also unable to keep disease and pests under control in this state. the trellises available for purchase were either the wrong size or too expensive. in order to keep this bush, we needed a low-cost diy solution. building simple cedar frames filled with mesh fencing ended up being the answer.
Building a Greenhouse" If you want the biggest tomatoes in your neighborhood next season, need somewhere to over-winter your orchids or love the idea of having your own blooming flowers year round, a backyard greenhouse may be just right for you.

Garden as if your life depended on it, because it does Spring has sprung — at least south of the northern tier of states where snow still has a ban on it — and the grass has ‘riz. And so has the price of most foods, which is particularly devastating just now when so many Americans are unemployed, underemployed, retired or retiring, on declining or fixed incomes and are having to choose between paying their mortgages, credit card bills, car payments, and medical and utility bills and eating enough and healthily. Many are eating more fast food, prepared foods, junk food — all of which are also becoming more expensive — or less food. In some American towns, and not just impoverished backwaters, as many as 30 percent of residents can’t afford to feed themselves and their families sufficiently, let alone nutritiously. Here in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina where I live it’s 25 percent. Across the country one out of six of the elderly suffers from malnutrition and hunger.
