The potato tower, this is my next garden project. The idea add a 4 to 6 inch level of dirt as the plant grows. The buried portion will turn into root and add more tubers. In theory, you can gain a yield of 100lbs for a single pound seed potatoes (in practice the yield should be around 40lbs). The trick is you need the right kind of potato, The regular russet, red, and yukon golds won't work for this. (See comments for more info.)
Soaking seeds before planting is an “old time” gardener’s trick that many new gardeners are not aware of. When you soak seeds before planting, you can significantly decrease the amount of time it takes for a seed to germinate.

The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. Its green, its cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric.
Newspaper will take 18 months to decompose, by which point grass and weeds underneath will have long since died, keeping your flower beds pristine!
Recycled Pallet Garden Planter
great idea, use burlap to hold in soil (instead of those stiff coconut husk liners)

Disney world does this! Lowes sells the 4 to 6" round PVC pipe with holes already drilled. Purchase an end cap, fill with rock, soil, and plant. Put these in the center of a very large pot to stabilize, and add amazing height and color to a container that has trailing plants (no end cap or rock needed if you are placing in a container)

GENIUS…Line a pathway with rocks painted in glow in the dark paint. During the day they “charge” in the sun and in the evening they reflect the stored light. Rust-Oleum Glow in the Dark Brush-on Paint. Do this for the front yard sidewalk
glow stones--you can put them in your yard, along your driveway, wherever, and they glow at night after soaking sun all day.
