    Mosquito trap - No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there. FLIES LOVE THIS!!! Have caught 1000's of flies!! Mom and dad

DIY 3-compartment compost bin

If this really works...how totally awesome???!!!! Garden Tower Project » The Homestead Survival vertical planter with a worm tower in the center really works. You add kitchen scraps into the center tower which creates a compost tea that drips out the bottom which you add back into the plants. Each hole can grow a different plant. 50 plants in 4 sq. ft.- Strawberries, lettuce, herbs, flowers... endless possibilities! Look at ALL the combinations!

Rubber door mats also work as pretty molds for concrete stepping stones.
