Author says she has never spent more than $8 to build a 4'x4' raised bed or $35 to build a 4'x20' one. They buy two 1x8"cedar boards, which are naturally rot-resistant, & cut in half, so that it is 4-feet long. Then use a 3" length of a 1x1" pine stake, cut into four pieces, to nail the cedar boards to at corners. Each box costs less than $10.

Make a Mini Greenhouse from Recycled CD Cases. Materials: Four compact disc cases 1. Remove the front (the clear part) from three of the cases. 2. Tape or glue the three cases in a box shape, and then add the final case on the back, as in the photo. 3. Help your little seedlings thrive by placing the greenhouse over the plant, using the lid as necessary.

Interesting idea for starting plants - kind of like mini greenhouses. Def going to try this
Good idea! Inexpensive Mini Greenhouses - These worked PHENOMENALLY for seed starting this year. It was nice to be able to easily carry them all in when there was a frost warning. I kept the lids on during the day to keep heat/moisture in.
nice idea for starting plants in the spring. we always have issues getting seeds enough light in the house. replace the plastic or Styrofoam cups with the brown paper ones and just poor water in the bottom of the tote periodically for easy watering.--Inexpensive Mini Greenhouses which can be stacked and stored in the summer ...unlike a proper green house.
Interesting idea for starting plants. Little Green houses. good idea
Place your seed starter pots in a clear plastic container as a mini greenhouse. Keep the lid on to increase the temperature as seeds grow and it also keeps bugs out! Interesting idea!

43 Edible Flowers & What They Taste Like
42 Flowers You Can Eat. The culinary use of flowers dates back thousands of years to the Chinese, Greek and Romans. Many cultures use flowers in their traditional cooking — think of squash blossoms in Italian food and rose petals in Indian food. Adding flowers to your food can be a nice way to add color, flavor and a little whimsy. Some are spicy, and some herbacious, while others are floral and fragrant. The range is surprising.... bit.ly/Igpzog

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I start my summer garden in December and January, using a neat trick called “Winter-Sowing.” Winter-sowing is an outdoor method of seed germination (invented by Trudi Davidoff) which requires just two things: miniature greenhouses (made from recycled milk jugs) and Mother Nature. You can winter-sow your way to a beautiful garden, too…for pennies. Here’s how:
