MUST MAKE something like this for the kids next Spring, they are ALWAYS right by me when planting flowers, herbs, veggies & they'd LOVE to have a place of their own to take care of, I'm SURE this will be a "hit" around here for years to come.

mini raised beds

Very smart! Rinse veggies right in the garden and then re-use the water on the plants. Plastic bucket and small laundry basket/colander from Dollar Tree would do nicely.

Homemade Weed Killer 1 gallon of white vinegar 1/2 cup salt Liquid dish soap (any brand) Empty spray bottle Put salt in the empty spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way up with white vinegar. Add a squirt of liquid dish soap. This solution works best if you use it on a hot day. Spray it on the weeds in the morning, and as it heats up it will do its work.

When to Plant

Cotton Candy Grass - Withstands heat, humidity, poor soil and even drought. Very easy to grow, it reaches a mature height of 3-4 feet tall and gets 3-4 feet wide. Grows in all U.S zones.

Place a sponge in the bottom of a planter before adding soil, to keep water in reserve. Really makes a difference in window boxes!

Raised Beds inside the look of this!!!

Remember for Spring ~ Add 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt to a gallon of water and spray your lawn for a lusher, greener lawn. Epsom salt is loaded with magnesium!

A small trellised planter perfect for patios and corner accents. (clematis, tomatoes, morning glory...)
