    Giant Lily-of-the-Valley

    Dress up your windowsill with these beautiful, fragrant flowers. A few people are rediscovering the magic and charm of forced lily of the valley. Although a few mail-order sources still carry pre-chilled “pips” (what old-timey florists called the dormant bud with roots attached), you can do just as well by forcing your own lily of the valley. You will need to act quickly, before the ground freezes.

    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
