Easy to DIY ladybug feeders. Bait bamboo with a raisin to lure them to your garden. Aphids are the most common garden pest and are difficult to control by spraying. Luckily, one ladybug can eat dozens of aphids a day, seeking them out wherever they hide. Ladybugs also prey on mealybugs, scale, leaf hoppers and mites. Bait these natural bamboo feeding stations with a raisin or two to welcome ladybugs into your garden and provide food when aphids are scarce.

Bamboo Ladybug Feeder. Just hang this natural bamboo feeder, bait it by adding a few raisins and they will come. It provides them a structural habitat to live on and the raisins provide food after they've cleared the garden of nasty pests. Much better and simpler solution than spraying toxic chemicals all around your home and garden. Outdoor Garden Tips / Ideas

~WHAT IS ROTATION? A Crop Rotation system works on a three year cycle, with different types of crop being sown/planted in the ground each year to avoid any build-up of disease. HOW TO START-PLAN Make a list of all the plants you want to grow in your vege garden this year Divide your list into summer and winter plants Divide your plants into veggie type: 1 - Root & Bulb 2 - Fruit & Seed 3 - Leaf & Stem~

3 year crop rotation chart
The importance of crop rotation, its connection to the Shmita cycle and the dangers of monoculture, cash cropping. Each year vegetables are planted in different beds to lessen disease problems and interrupt the life cycle of pests that are attracted to a particular plant. Crop rotation also allows the soil to replenish after hosting heavy feeders, and alternating deep-rooted and fibrous-rooted crops from year to year improves soil structure.
Simple crop rotation system for growing vegetables.
Crop Rotation Chart: even though we plan on doing a square foot garden where crop rotation isn't totally necessary< I still think it is a good idea.
One solution is to move your tomatoes to the bed where you grew leafy plants like spinach and broccoli. Move the greens to the root bed and the root crops to the fruit and seed bed (tomatoes, corn, peppers). - See more at: http://bitesizegardening.com/2014/06/21/rotate-crops-even-mean/#sthash.zAQjViFF.dpuf 3 year crop rotation plan from fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaid.net

While on a gardening site, I came across the Square Foot Gardening method. As I have horrible soil in my backyard that no amount of amending will help due to large tree roots sucking all the nutrients out of the soil, I was interested in this method of gardening as you don’t even need to use dirt. With the raised box gardens, you use the following mixture: 1/3 Blended Compost 1/3 Peat Moss 1/3 Coarse Vermiculite

Cheap Raised Gardening Bed
Author says she has never spent more than $8 to build a 4x4 raised bed or $35 to build a 4x20 one. They buy two 1x8cedar 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.

Vinegar Kills Weeds -I have seen this all over and wondered if it worked. This gardening site has testimonials of plain white vinegar as a weed killer. Make sure to clean your sprayer after using as vinegar is corrosive and will rust any metal parts.

Diatomaceous Earth is a natural killer of many pests, both indoors and out. i have personally found it excellent for flea control. i used the food grade diatomaceous earth (can buy at a feed store) on my dog as a non-chemical flea powder and a de-wormer. Use externally for fleas and stir 1/4 teaspoon - 1 tablespoon (depending on weight) in your dogs food for worms. Can add essential oil such as lavender for a natural scent, if desired.
