      DIY Veggie Basket- This is a neat basket to put your fresh picked veggies in. Once they are in the basket just turn the hose on them to rinse them off. Or something fun for the kids to carry their "prizes in". LOL Great idea!

    OK - now we're talking, PVC pipe structure with potted plants (squash or cucumbers) growing on it. You can walk under to pick. Nothing on the ground to get buggy or fungus, and you control your soil. Brilliant!

    Mason bees don't sting, don't swarm, and don't make honey. But they *do* pollinate plants way better than regular bees. Put up a mason bee house, order some bees, and enjoy your harvest.

    Very smart! Rinse veggies right in the garden and then re-use the water on the plants. Plastic bucket and small laundry basket/colander from Dollar Tree would do nicely. | protractedgarden
