I think I can figure out what makes this one secret... The hush that comes over one who is contemplating going through the gate and venturing into the seductive darkness just beyond the shock of light green...That is a secret place for sure... where any number of magical, secretive, breathtaking things may occur! and. . . when you return you must keep the secrets!!! #gardening #landscaping

this little garden is calling to me!! - Barnsely House #garden designs #modern garden design #garden interior design #garden decorating

tiny stone cottage or shed in France-- I would just like to have my very own chickens in the future

Grow these next year

Cut the bottom off a plastic pot to contain invasive plants & bury in the ground. I have been doing this for a few years & works great for containing plants that tend to spread, but that I still want to plant in the garden. This also works good for planting a plant in an area that tends to get filled with roots etc. from other plants. I will use a larger pot so that the plant can spread it's roots and grow deeper roots, but keeps other tree roots from choking out the one I planted.

Know your soil - do a Mason Jar Soil Test. I did this years ago when I first started gardening. I ended up adding sand to my garden spot. I have had poor soil conditions for the last 10 years or so and have added organic material and composted material to improve my soil condition. The mason jar test is a great place to start.

How to Grow Asparagus

When I was in the Master Gardener program we used the water crystals in planters and I knew it was the same thing in diapers, but it never crossed my mind to put a diaper in the bottom of one. Someone else said, "The trick to amazing potted plants - diapers. I did this in my hanging baskets last year and they rocked all season."

I Want to grow this next year!
