Get your garden started early by planting your seeds in eggshells indoors before the weather permits outdoor growth. There are several reasons why eggshells are the perfect pot for this, but the biggest is that they are cheap (free really), full of calcium to give your seedlings that extra boost, and easy to plant in the garden when ready (the shell can stay on!).
The next time you have green onions, don't throw away the white ends. Simply submerge them in a glass of water and place them in a sunny window. Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately and can be harvested almost indefinitely. We just use kitchen scissors to cut what we need for meals. I periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them fresh water.
Potato Towers, Bins and Containers. How to Grow and Harvest Potatoes With Minimal Space. When do you get started on your vegetable garden each spring? I used to wait until it was time to plant, but we have a short growing season where I live. That means I don’t get nearly the yield that I’m hoping for. #garde
Got Pallets? Hate weeding? Dont feel like turning up a bunch of grass? Use a pallet as a garden bed - staple garden cloth on the backside of the pallet fill with dirt and start growing! You can also place your pallet on the ground in a rocky location rather than a grassy area, this way you will not need the garden cloth to stop the weeds and grass coming through. @Charity Scantlebury Scantlebury Scantlebury Kornele-Digby
Don't have much space to grow your favorite plants? Try building a vertical garden like this one, designed by Susie Frazier. Using salvaged wood, threaded rods and bolts, and a handful of mason jars, you can construct a simple hanging planter to add a lot of green to your game. See original article for instructions.
