I wonder if I could make this by gluing wine corks onto a board? Evenly Space Plants. This dibber, inspired by the one Martha saw in her friend David Rockefeller's greenhouse, is used in the garden beds to make evenly spaced holes for crops such as lettuce and Asian greens. Start drinking wine my friends!

Cantitoe Corners: Martha's Vegetable Garden A Dibble Designed by Martha This dibble, inspired by the one Martha saw in her friend David Rockefeller's greenhouse, is used in the garden beds to make evenly spaced holes for crops such as lettuce and Asian greens.
What a clever idea! If you have the tools and a few spare $$ (to buy the materials), this could be an easy DIY project that would end up saving you so much time when it comes to prepping the soil for planting seeds.

Illuminate Pathways Curb appeal doesn't end when the sun goes down. Highlight pathways and trees with landscape lighting. It improves safety and can yield dramatic effects for your home's nighttime appeal. Get exclusive tips to boost your home's curb appeal! Landscape for Curb Appeal Smooth the transition between the street and your front steps by landscaping for curb appeal. A clear, curved path will move visitors to the home's entry and is pleasing to the eye. Surround a walkway with midsize shrubs and flowers; passers-by will notice plant groupings more than individual flowers, making greater streetside impact. Add Container Plants Turn your home's entry into an inviting focal point by adding a few well-chosen and nicely arranged plants on the front porch. Vary the plant and container sizes, and arrange them on multiple levels. Make a fine first impression with our best curb appeal tips. How to Choose a Container Learn how to pick the best pot for your container garden using these helpful tips. Replace Old Walkways If a concrete walkway is in bad shape or is just dull as dirt, replace it with a fresh path made entirely of stone or brick. Visitors access this front door via square pads of bluestone trimmed with brick. Narrow strips of turfgrass separate the squares, which step up slightly with the change in grade from the street to the house. Hang a Wreath Whether placed on your front door or beside it, a wreath is a simple way to personalize your entry. This living monogram wreath was created using spray-painted cedar boards and chicken wire and was filled with peat moss and succulents.

How to Increase Curb Appeal on a Budget
Being on a budget doesn’t have to mean using ugly containers. If you’re willing to put a little elbow grease into converting a cheap plastic pot into something unique and stylish, then you can have nice looking pots for less than $20. Hunt down garage sales and scour Craig’s List to find inexpensive pots. Then with $10 of paint and stenciling supplies, you’ll be well on your way.
Stylish DIY Container for a gardener on a budget.

I would love to win a collection of Sempervivums from Arrowhead Alpines! I think they would grow great on our hot sunny patio this summer.
A contest win your own sempervivum plants. I'd love to win my own. I've gotten fantastic ideas of how to use them.
Life of the Balcony and Arrowhead Alpines have a very cute promotion to win some hens & chicks of your own.
If you’ve ordered a bunch of sempervivums from Arrowhead Alpines like I did, you need lots of things to do with all those little babies semps make. This was a totally fun and super easy little garden to make. I used a mint tin that I purchased at Trader Joe’s but if you’ve got an Altoid tin around, that would work just as well.
