Save your large egg shells next time you bake, wash them out (or not!) and plant them with seeds. Once the plants are large enough, just transfer the whole egg into the ground. The shell is actually a great fertilizer and the roots will be able to break right through.
Our dog loves it and so do we. He's taught other dogs to use it as well. He figured out how to avoid the hot water in the pipes on hot days, by going up to it and letting it run for a minute before he takes a drink. Before we got the Water Dog, he would tip his bowl over, or it would get full of dirt and mud. This removes the bowl from being a play toy, and assures him of fresh, cool, available water everytime he wants it. He gets excited every Spring when it goes back up....
First, Firmly twist the crown off. It will come off fairly easily. Then take the crown and pull off the lower leaves until you have about an inch or more of the core. You don't need them and they will get in the way of rooting the pineapple. Fill a jar with water and plop your crown into the jar. Place your pineapple jar in an area that gets decent light. then Within two weeks, some nice roots should develop. Then you can plant the pineapple whenever you're ready.
I live in the hot humid south and even the best wood raised gardens don't last. So I decided to try something else that would take the moisture and heat. All of the products I found that were other than wood appeared very challenging to put together and/or required tools I don't own.
This one looked simple enough so i bought 3 of them and gave it a try. Wow, it was so simple to put together. I had one together in about 15 minutes, the only tool needed was a rubber mallet. My 12 yr. old grandson and his 10 yr. sister assembled the other 2 in 30 minutes.
5 blade herb scissors: These are everything I expected and more. They make such quick work of chopping herbs that I went a little crazy with them today. Don't be an idiot like me and run your fingers over the blades...they're sharp! I don't know what I was thinking. The built-in blade cleaner on the guard is PERFECT.
