Twig Plant Marker How-To 1. Gather small branches, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch around, in an easily worked but sturdy wood, such as maple. 2. With a vegetable peeler, strip a couple of inches of bark at one end, making a flat surface, and use permanent marker to record the name. Note: If the wood is green and oozing sap, let it dry overnight before writing.

hanging strawberry garden; grow strawberries from elevated rain gutters.
What a great idea ~ Google "growing strawberries in rain gutter" to see sights with directions ~ this is just a photo, but I LOVE the idea! (seeing this gave me an idea of how to use the space in my backyard for gardening that I can't put plants directly on.)
Gutter berries! Here's an interesting way to grow strawberries, fill an old rain gutter with soil, plant the berries & harvest them as the overhang. Much easier than crawling through Rows of berries on the ground and you won't need straw between the rows! More Gardening Ideas here: http://www.budget101.com/frugal/gardening-landscaping-208/
Grow #strawberries in rain #gutters! #gardening #garden #planting #fruits
bonus idea: Recycled rain gutters = elevated strawberry planters. (a) Reminds me of that song: "I'm in heaven, this is heaven..." Yumm... (b) Growing strawberries a couple feet off the ground keeps them safe from slugs snails (which will love to munch on 'em if given the opportunity)

According to writer and naturalist Julie Zickefoose (http://www.juliezickefoose.com/index.php), Birch trees may be one of the best year-round native choices for birds. These fast-growing, short-lived trees are one of birds' favorites! They attract lots of insects, have edible fruits, and make amazing nesting cavities when they become dead snags. Consider adding them to your landscape if they are native to your region!
This time of year, as the temperatures drop and the days are shorter, us gardeners are ready to call it quits. But, if there is ONE thing you can do this fall and early winter, to make next growing season better, it is to MULCH your plants, flower bed and gardens. Mulching adds nutrients to your soil, creates rich habitat for decomposers, and for those in dry areas, it conserves water. So, roll up your sleeves and give it one more push...this spring you'll be grateful you did.

Do you have forested backyard habitat? Even small woodlots can be managed to provide ideal habitat for birds and other wildlife. Promoting native trees and shrubs, leaving snags and downed wood, adding nest boxes, and minimizing deer browse are just some of the ways you can improve forested habitat.

The genus name is from the Greek echino, meaning hedgehog, an allusion to the spiny, brownish central disk. The flowers of Echinacea species are used to make an extremely popular herbal tea purported to help strengthen the immune system. Purple Coneflower is a showy, easily grown garden plant. Pollinators will appreciate it in the summer, and, if you leave the interesting seed heads intact, the birds will thank you come fall. Read more on flowers in the garden: bit.ly/1oIYXBb

Monarch caterpillar populations are declining rapidly, and milkweed is critical to monarch survival as their caterpillars feed exclusively upon milkweed leaves. Milkweed also attracts many species of butterflies, bees, and other insects, making it a true gem to pollinators. Habitat tip: plant milkweed in large clumps to maximize its benefit to wildlife. Find out which native milkweed to plant by visiting YardMap: bit.ly/1q0qEHA. Note: butterflies in photo are a fritillary and skippers.
Butterfly weed has a large range in the U.S. due to its ability to grow in a variety of soils, not to mention it's drought resistant. Butterfly weed attracts numerous native bees, as well as honey and bumble bees. It also provides nectar to butterflies, and is a larval host to monarchs and several other species of butterflies. This is a weed that every yard needs!

Goldenrod provides nectar, pollen, seeds, shelter, and places to lay eggs to hundreds of species of wildlife, including birds, bees, spiders, butterflies, and moths. Insects and small mammals eat the leaves and stems. Many people view goldenrod as a weed, but wildlife gardeners know better. Keep clumps of goldenrod throughout your property, leave them standing in winter and you'll see that they are always buzzing with activity. Find native goldenrod in your area: bit.ly/1q0qEHA
