BAD IDEA!!!!! Fill container with vinegar, sugar and salt to trap wasps ... and ensure that your garden is overrun with caterpillars and other pests. Wasps hunt and kill caterpillars, spiders and other garden pests. Notice that lacewings also got trapped. They eat aphids.

DIY Recycle and water your plants:) ...

Recycle wine bottles to water plants. Watch @MarieOsmondShow April 9th #HallmarkChannel @DidiayerSnyder for other ideas for recycling bottles.
Clever recycled bottle waterer... Plants need a drink too! ;)
fill an empty wine bottle with water to water plants slowly, decorative and a great use of old wine bottles!
Why spend money on some as seen on TV self watering plant globes? Recycling is free. Fill an empty wine bottle with water and stick it into a potted plant to water it while you are away or just because you are too busy to water. Wine bottles are best because of the long thin neck and the glass is heavy enough to stand up to light winds and not come out.
Clever recycled bottle waterer. I surely never have a problem finding an empty bottle ;-)
My personal fav – wine bottle watering. I have personally tested this one out folks. (I knew my love of red wine was good for something other than, well, my love of red wine!) Water plants thoroughly, rinse an empty wine bottle, (or other glass bottle with a narrow neck) and fill with water. Standing next to your planter, quickly turn over the bottle and push the neck down into the soil near the center of the planter. Make sure the neck is at least several inches underground. The water in the bottle will seep into the soil over several days, keeping the soil evenly moist. It works!
Clever recycled bottle waterer. INGENIOUS! (Could use a beer bottle too for smaller plants!)
Cucumber Trellis/Lettuce Shade This takes the space saving of square foot gardening to a whole new level. Plus, it kills two birds with one DIY project — shading lettuce under the growth of cucumbers. And, all it takes is some chicken wire and scrap wood. Photo and tutorial via Florida Vegetable Garden

Cucumber trellis to shade the lettuce garden... I have to remember this for the next garden !
Discover Companion Planting with this Cucumber Trellis | Cucumbers like it hot. Lettuce likes it cool and shady. But with this trellis, they’re perfect companions! Use this slanted trellis to grow your cucumbers and you’ll enjoy loads of straight, unblemished fruit. Plant lettuce, mesclun or spinach in the shady area beneath to protect it from wilting or bolting. Western red cedar frame and sturdy plastic mesh. 48" square.
Cucumber trellis to shade the lettuce garden...GREAT SMALL SPACE GARDENING IDEA!
Cucumber trellis Shades lettuce, good idea for companion planting. #garden
Make a basic wooden frame, staple chicken wire over it. Place the wire frame at an angle on attached legs. You then use as a cucumber trellis and plant lettuce underneath! The cucumber vines won't strangle out anything else and the lettuce grows better with partial shade.
