Grow food, not lawns - raised bed garden in front yard
Front lawn of an old farmhouse converted into a vegetable garden- Homesteading and Survivalism
Dona Miller You can use one side of the yard for the kids things and teach the kids how to work in the garden . It may come down to this eventually and good training for the kids. Thye always want something to do and need to put down the electronic stuff for awhile and get exercise. Put a fence around your yard if neighbors complain or move where you can. it is coming to this.
What if everyone planted FOOD instead of grass? Would the world be a much happier place?

Brilliant way to root cuttings!
Antiques Gardens, Cut Stem, Gardens Water Ideas, Gardens Book, Hardwood Cut, Lee Gardens, Gardens Ideas Water Gardens, Roots Cut, Cold Weather
How to root cuttings: == I see, haven’t been pruned; they are dormant and leafless and need all stems cut back to 3 to 4 feet in height. Gardening lull or not, I can’t just toss those cut stems away, putting them to waste. Each stem can make a whole new tree, and fairly easily. So I set up a little propagator for rooting some of these “hardwood cuttings.” Being leafless, the cuttings lose little water so have no need for the high humidity demanded by so-called softwood cuttings, which are cuttings taken while plants are actively growing and leafy. Any cutting, hardwood or softwood, does need its bottom portion, where roots will form, cozied in moisture and air. Some people just plop stems into a glass of water. That works for easy-to-root plants, like fig, as long as the water is occasionally changed so bacteria don’t build up and the roots get a fresh charge of aeration. Roots formed in water are morphologically different from those in soil, so the eventual and inevitable transfer to soil must be done with care, with attention to root breakage, aeration, and moisture. Here's my propagator for cuttings, in this case with figs. My cuttings will root directly in soil, or a “soil” of some sort, actually a soil-less soil similar in makeup to most commercial potting mixes. That soil is nothing more than a mix of equal parts perlite, a “popped” volcanic rock, and peat moss. The perlite is for aeration; the peat moss is to hold moisture. (Coir, a byproduct of the coconut industry, or leaf mold could be substituted for the peat moss.) Now here’s the cool part: After filling a large flowerpot with the rooting mix, I scooped out the center and put into the hole a smaller flowerpot. That smaller flowerpot has to be terra cotta and unglazed. It also needs it’s drainage hole plugged; some moldable wax, saved from when my daughter had braces, worked well. (I knew I had saved that wax all these years for something!) Rapping the large pot and pressing lightly on the soil ensured good contact and a continuous capillary connection between the water in the inner pot and the surrounding soil between the inside and outside pots. I slid the cuttings into the circle of soil with only one or two upper buds showing. Until leaves appear, and there’s no rush, the only attention the pot needs is to keep the inner reservoir of soil filled with water. Once leaves appear, the cuttings need light.

Coolest. Science. Project. EVER. Stole this idea from Miss Julie, my beloved girlie and the coolest First Grade teacher in North America. The twins and I tried this last Fall–simply open up a pumpkin–get a sturdy variety like Iron Man or Alladins. Fill 3/4 with soil and water sparingly. Too much and your little ecosystem …

Heinz comes in the most convenient sizes, but its flavor—not too harsh, very bright—is the reason it trumps every other label on the shelf. There’s just one problem: I can never decide whether to store it under the sink or in the pantry. ($3 for 64 oz.) —S.R.
