Simple aphid control - something yellow covered in vaseline

Simple aphid control - homemade sticky traps, 2 per tomato plant, use a yellow plastic cup, turned upside down & stuck onto 16 in broomstick-sized dowls with a tack. Push sticks into ground a foot from tomato plant. Coat the yellow plastic cup with Tree Tanglefoot, a very sticky substance that doesn’t wash off. Aphids are attracted to the color yellow, fly onto the cups & the Tanglefoot catches them. (Don't substitute -Tree Tanglefoot is the only thing that doesn't wash off & keeps catching).

Container Veggie Garden Ideas
Survival Gardening in Containers..You don't need a plot of land to grow fresh vegetables. Many vegetables lend themselves well to container gardening. With some thought to selecting bush or dwarf varieties, almost any vegetable can be adapted to growing in a pot. Vegetables that take up little space, such as carrots, radishes and lettuce, or crops that bear fruits over a long period of time, such as tomatoes and peppers, are perfect for container vegetable gardens.

Great gardening idea and looks nice too . . . A sand-filled trough will keep tools clean and sharp, and the oil will keep them rust-free.
Vegetable Garden Good Things Garden Tool Container A sand-filled trough will keep small garden tools from vanishing -- and keep them in good working order. Fill a trough or other container with sand to 1 inch from top. Pour in about 1/4 cup of motor oil (sand should have a slightly moist texture); stir. When returning tools to trough, wipe them with a rag. The sand will keep tools clean and sharp, and the oil will keep them rust-free.

The rounded flowers of the globe amaranth look like brilliant purple clover, though it may come in other colors such as white, pink, and lavender. As well as being a tough survivor in the heat, globe amaranth makes a good plant for drying. Stiffly branching plants to 2 feet (.60 m) tall and 1 foot (.3 m) wide. Profuse bloomers.

Add a few more marbles or rocks so that the tulip bulb is surrounded but not covered (think support). . .Step 3 - Pour fresh water into the container. The water shouldn't touch the bulb, but it should be very close, so that the roots will grow in... Love this idea for the kitchen window in the winter to bring in some color when it's so gray out.

Pink flowers on an all white plate setting
There isn't a more rewarding garden flower than the herbaceous Peony. These perennial flowers range from exquisitely delicate singles to large and lush doubles, with shades from pure white to the deepest red. Here in Litchfield they usually produce their display in June, and their glossy, deep green leaves look good all season. Peonies make superior cut flowers, lasting more than a week if cut in full bud.
fresh flowers for me house some day!
"Garden Fork" Martha Stewart. I need this!

See the "Garden Fork" in our Garden Tool Glossary gallery
Can't wait to use my new Garden Fork". More efficient than a spade at turning over soil and breaking up clods, it is also easier to use in dense or heavy soil. Look for one with a D-handle and tines that are square in cross-section -- flat tines can bend when they strike a rock or a root. The fork should attach to the handle with a closed socket or double straps, one above the handle and one below, and have rivets running through it
