A previous pinner said... "My neighbour has a row of roses, which he took as cuttings. I asked how he took them. He simply plunges the cuttings into the ground. But his secret of success is the humble potato! Before planting cuttings, he pushes the bottom end into a small potato, which he believes keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but his row of allotment roses is proof it works." Ideas, Roots, Rose Cut, Outdoor, Small Potatoes, Plants, Gardens, Growing Roses, The Secret

A board, a hose clamp and a mason jar! how easy can it get! I think this would be so cool in the kitchen with herbs in it.

And maybe some glass paint for the bottom third of the jars? pink's and aqua's.. maybe yellow? just bright and cheerful Gardens Ideas, Indoor Herbs, Growing Herbs, Plants, Herbs Gardens, Mason Jars, Flowerpot, Wall Planters, Kitchens Herbs

DIY Fire Pit: I'm repinning this again because we just bought similar bricks at home depot to make our own firepit! Ours will be slightly bigger, as we got the 12" stones instead of the 8" pictured here. And since we got the bigger stones, ours cost $45, instead of the $30 this blogger paid, but I think it's worth it for the bigger fire pit!
