Each time you crack an egg open, instead of tossing the shell into the trash, drop it into an open container that you keep in the fridge. (I've always saved my shells, but my friend Susan suggested keeping them in the fridge - works beautifully.) When the container is full, crush the shells into small bits and sprinkle them around the base of your plants. The sharp egg shells will deter slugs, snails, and other bugs from nibbling on your garden.

Where to cut roses to help them grow bushy and flower more: after blooming cut just above an eye (shown). In early spring you cut the roses all the way down- just above ground at the third eye.

I may have to start looking for glassware so I can make some garden totems/bird baths. Great way to add color in a shady yard where flowers won't grow.
