What's your lucky number? Try this simple idea: Decorate a plain pumpkin with house numbers (#214370, #214368). Start with a white pumpkin. Drill pilot holes in the pumpkin to make attaching the numbers easier. Not sure which numerals to display? Use your address number, and place it near your front door to greet guests. Or, add your favorite digits and use it inside.
This porch planter is made from durable materials and built for efficiency. Substitute vinyl siding, synthetic stucco, or other siding materials to create planters that match your home. Cut each part to length and sand with 150-grit sandpaper as you proceed through the steps.
Fall Planting: Once used to decorate salad bars, kale is now everyone’s favorite wonder vegetable. Packed with nutrients, it makes a nice companion to lettuce in salads. Young leaves taste the best, and the flavor improves after frost. You can sow seeds or plant container-grown kale, which matures in about 2 months. Kale is forgiving when it comes to soil as long as it’s well drained and has some nutrients for growth.
Fall Planting: Get the kids to help you grow this swiss chard—they’ll be so enamored with the bright red and gold stems that they’ll be clamoring to eat this nutritious vegetable. The leaves are most commonly eaten, but the stems are sometimes roasted or pickled. Sow seeds in spring for an early summer crop or in late summer for a fall crop. In warm areas of the country, sow in fall for a winter crop. Swiss chard is not picky about soils.
Fall Planting: One look at the cost of bagged salad in the supermarket and you’ll be glad you sowed a crop of leaf lettuce. For best flavor, sow the seeds of several varieties (it also looks more attractive, as you can see in the picture). All take the same growing conditions: rich, loose soil, consistent moisture, and cooler temperatures. Although somewhat frost tolerant, it’s best to cover the crop if temperatures dip below freezing. Or grow your crop in a cold frame.
Fall Planting: gardeners can harvest a crop (or three) of radishes after school starts. Just loosen up some soil enriched with compost, smooth with a garden rake, sprinkle the seeds, and lightly cover with soil. In 30 to 40 days, you’ll be adding these flavorful vegetables to your salads!
Porcelain floor tiles (#397690, #120556) convey the look of wood and limestone in a more practical form. The medley of tile shapes and sizes, all in subtle neutral tones, includes mosaic (#305380) and plank patterns. Mixing patterns and textures adds layers of visual interest.
String lights are synonymous with party lights. Use string lights to illuminate food and drink areas, or to light an open space for dancing. They also look cool wrapped around tree trunks, deck railings or even trellises for an unexpected focal point. Add a bit of vintage flair with Edison bulb string lights or mercury ball string lights draped from a gazebo or pergola.
