"Freezing corn on the cob the quick easy way. (And it does retain all of it's fresh corn taste too!)" Read it in doubt, but makes a good enough argument to give it a try next fall. (Note: Only works on the freshest ears, as straight from the plant as possible.)
Freezer Meals: Corn on the Cob A delicious way of easily saving fresh corn for when you need it.
I did this. Bought corn early at the farmer's market that was picked the evening before. I was skeptical but we'll see! "Freezing corn on the cob the quick & easy way. (And it does retain all of it's fresh corn taste too!)" Read it in doubt, but makes a good enough argument to give it a try next fall. (Note: Only works on the freshest ears, as straight from the plant as possible.)

Put strawberry plants in concrete blocks edging a garden. Idea for a raised bed
Use cinderblocks to creat raised bed and face with the rocks I have behind the house. Cover the top with wood to cover the cinder edging and then cut holes. Put strawberry plants in concrete blocks edging a garden, what a perfect way to raise a garden and when the berries wander that block wall will look so pretty and green

How To Make Biodegradable Mini Planters From Toilet Paper Rolls If you plan on starting your own vegetable and flower seeds, you can get a little more mileage out of that toilet paper roll. Make yourself a “mini-planter” that you can plant pot and all! Making this biodegradable mini-planter is pretty simple – scissors and a toilet paper or paper towel roll is all that’s required. You should be able to see what to do from the image but if you need instructions.
DIY toiletpaper roll pots
30 Insanly Clever Gardening Ideas!! Make biodegradable planters out of toilet paper rolls.
Toilet Paper Tubes Mini Planters 1. Using scissors, cut six to eight small slits in the end of your toilet paper roll (if using a paper towel roll, cut the roll into three pieces before beginning this step). 2. Fold the strips down so they overlap. 3. Fill carefully with wet soil, and set in a baking sheet. 4. Plant 1 seed per roll. After germination, just plant the whole thing in your garden! http://earth911.com/news/2012/05/30/7-more-reused-items-to-boost-your-garden/4

Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier

Mosquito Trap Take a 2 liter soda bottle. Cut off the top right below where it starts to narrow for the top, invert and place inside the lower half. Make a simple sugar syrup. Ingredients: •1 cup sugar •1 cup water •2 cups cool water Be sure to seal the two parts of the bottle with the tape. The fermenting yeast will release carbon dioxide. Put black paper around the bottle since mosquitoes like dark places and carbon dioxide. This mosquito trap will then start working.
