Camp Wander: The Wonderful Worm Tower - Square Foot Garden Friendly! (composting)
Worm tubes: drop in kitchen scraps and compost directly in your beds. The worms will then deposit their castings in the garden beds.
Worm Tubes! ~ Worms go into the tube, eat through kitchen scraps, and then out into the garden to deposit their castings. **Note ~ I'm going to combine this idea with taking my kitchen scraps and "blenderizing" them to break down the "chunks" and then dumping them into the worm tubes. It's easy. No composter, tools, OR smell. Breaks down really fast. Like fast food for worms. Putting a few tubes into each of my 3 x 15 "Square Foot Garden" beds.

Driftwood planter. Or use a mesquite log and some TEXAS native plants.
A hollowed out tree limb as a planter. What a great idea! You'll have a great looking flower pot, it'll add interest to the garden and you're recycling a downed tree limb too! What a great idea! ~I have the PERFECT tree trunk in mind, I just have to find a way to get it out of the woods. hmmmmm....

Plant tomatoes around a 5 gallon bucket for irrigation solution
James Bryan had a bright idea that resulted in a robust, high-yielding tomato plant
started may 28th planting 4 tomatoes around a garbage can with holes drilled in the bottom rim and a second row up about 10 inches… buried the can to where the top holes just barely were above the ground… put in two shovels full of compost… then I fill the can up with water every 2 days and try not to water the leaves… these four plants are now 5 ft 4 inches in less that a month and a half and loaded with green tomatoes and about a hundred sets of tomato blossoms…James Bryan had a bright idea that resulted in something brilliant... #Tomatoes #gardening #organic

Herb Garden Idea but great for all plantings for my front porch!
Tower of Herbs - 5 terra-cotta planters - Soilless potting mix - Assorted herbs - parsley, oregano, basil, chives - plant mint in top pot, since it can overwhelm other herbs. - Place largest planter in the location for the herb garden. Center 1 smaller pot within, upside down (with at least 6 inches of space around the inverted pot); fill with potting mix. - Repeat to create a second layer with 2 smaller pots, with 4 inches between them. Place final pot right side up on second inverted pot.
A visual how-to on building those beautiful flower pot towers. Let's put one our front porches this year! Great for an herb garden outside the kitchen door!
