Keyhole Gardening - self-composting, drought friendly garden structure
Keyhole Gardening Unlocking the secrets of drought-hardy gardens... "I love this idea, originally it was innovated because of the droughts in Africa. I learned of it when studying in my Global Sustainability class. Not only is it very efficient, 2 gardens like this can feed a family of 10 all year round & use as little as a gallon of water a day, it's an awesome concept."

HOW TO PROPAGATE LAVENDER FROM CUTTINGS -Garden of Eaden
HOW TO PROPAGATE LAVENDER FROM CUTTINGS - Works with rosemary also ==°°° Taking a cutting from a healthy mature lavender plant will not harm it, and besides - it will need to be cut back hard at the end of summer anyway to encourage strong healthy growth in the spring. Using a sharp, sterilised knife or secateurs, cut a small branch off the lower half of the plant that is about 3-5 inches long. Make sure that the branch is soft and not woody. Strip the bottom half of the cutting of leaves, place in the hole in the soil that you prepared earlier then close the hole with soil. There is no need to use rooting hormones on lavender cutting, but no harm will be done if you are addicted to using it. Water your new plant thoroughly after planting. For the first couple of weeks keep the soil damp, but then water less frequently. At this point water when the soil begins to get dry, but before the plant displays any distress. Too much water will kill your new lavender plant. When attempting to propagate lavender, this is the most common mistake. After about 6 weeks you can move your new lavender plant to a larger pot or into the ground. If planting lavender in the ground, dig the hole about 1 ft wide and about 8 inches (20 cm) deep. Prepare the soil by mixing sand, peat moss or compost, and your native soil. It's most important that the soil drain very well. Fill the hole far enough with your soil mixture that the plant will be at the proper level when the hole is filled the rest of the way. Before filling add a teaspoon full of bone meal or another slow release fertilizer. After removing the plant from the small pot, pour a small amount of root stimulator on the roots, then cover with soil.

Chives are related to onions and remind me of green onion tops-although their flavor is a bit more pungent and tangy. I use them sparingly as a garnish--most often on potatoes with sour cream.

Besides being able to eat locally grown garlic, you can manage your organic garden and be certain that you have top quality, nutrient dense garlic in your cuisine. Garlic is a rising star because of its antibiotic and anti-fungal properties, among other benefits. You want to be certain that the health benefits of garlic are not eclipsed by what was fed to it or sprayed on it.
