In a bucket or pail, mix two cups of cement with 1 cup of water to create a thick paste. spread the cement mixture onto each leaf. Allow the cement to dry then Flip the mold over, and remove each leaf.
I'm definitely going to do this this summer. Can't count how many times I've had to rescue a bee or bee like creature struggling after falling into the birdbath (luckily I saw it) but this looks like it will fill the bill and prevent future drownings! Good idea!! :)
I adore this idea. I'm going to become a guerrilla gardener!! :-) How to make seed balls. Seed balls are great for reclaiming derelict areas with thin or poor soil, making them ideal tools for guerrilla gardening. Especially useful for tossing into empty or neglected lots. Best thrown just before a rainy spell to ensure germination
This small greenhouse are 100% recycled, We combined some old building bricks and three roof windows and cleverly assembled them. Then we add a little soil, planted the seeds of our choice and let them grow. In this way, the beautiful greenhouses protect the seedlings from weather and keep them warm until they are planted in a flowerbed or vegetable garden.
I love Squirrels if you'd ever took the time to watch one you'd think they were very smart and crafty animals just make sure when you feed them they don't have access to your house or roof of the house that's all.
Sometimes, when a plant is not in flower, it isn't obvious what the plant is. You can use the color, shape and habit of leaf growth to help identify the plant in question. Here are some websites that will help you identify them.
Growing lemon trees from seeds is fun, especially for children, and although they flower as quite young plants, it takes a number of years before they fruit. In the meantime, they make attractive, highly fragrant container plants.
Green Onions/Leeks and Celery/Romaine Lettuce/Cabbage have the same process. I would like to add that you will get better luck from organic produce, as GMO produce in general does not reproduce on their own.
The whole system only took about 30 minutes to install. I had never dealt with any plumbing at all before and it was extremely easy. The snap nozzle at the end of the hose is great and quick if I need to use the other end of the hose for something else. It's great!
I love the new walkway that my husband helped me create using the Quikrete Walk Maker. It took awhile to get a rhythm but once we got it, it went pretty fast. I am glad my husband helped! It would have taken me MUCH longer to mix and pour the concrete by myself!
Growing your own food is the most gratifying and rewarding act on the planet. Plus, starting food from seeds is easy, inexpensive and fun. But planning a garden can be daunting and many gardeners do not know where to start. so here is ten Vegetables that are Easy to Grow from Seed
Growing Your Own Forage Blend is Easy You don’t have to be a Master Gardener to grow your own Chicken Forage Blend. All it takes is a little know-how and a short list of supplies. the instructions from this blog will only show you how to grow one 17 inch flat of the seed blend, but if you understand the concept of successive gardening, you can schedule multiple sowings two weeks apart for a continuous supply throughout the growing season
Squirrels love digging up freshly planted bulbs. Spread a layer of mulch to hide your bulbs. If that doesn't help, weigh down a piece of mesh or chicken wire over the soil to keep critters from digging. It should be safe to remove the protective mesh or wire after the bulbs start to sprout out of the ground.
I was getting tired of the squirrels eating the birdseeds so I decided to get them a feeder of their own. This squirrel feeder is so cute and was bigger than I imagined. We hung it on one of our trees the day we got it and I looked outside this morning when I woke up and there was one the squirrels using it and enjoying his corn cob! I saw another chair squirrel feeder at Lowe's but this one looks so much better!!
You give it sufficient amount of water to completely soak the soil and you water it no more than 3 times a year. Cactus are xerophytes and they will die if over watered. I read a story about a man who was growing cactus in New England, he used to read the weather reports for Phoenix, Arizona and when it rained there he watered his cactus.
