A secret trick to better squash? When the seedlings are up and thinned, it's time to plant hairy vetch between the hills. The vetch prevents erosion and keeps the ground cooler on hot summer days. It also crowds out most weeds in the space between the hills. But its greatest virtue is that, as a legume, it changes the nitrogen in the air into a form that can be taken up by the squash plants, a process known as nitrogen fixation. by francesca-caas

Place bulbs shoulder to shoulder across the surface of the soil, leaving no space between them. Then top off with more potting soil so the bulbs are just slightly below the surface. Water each container thoroughly, and finish with a layer of mulch. Leave pots outdoors for winter chilling. The more exposure to cold the bulbs get, the better they’ll bloom. In the South, bulbs in containers will bloom better than bulbs in the ground because cold air envelopes the pots, reaching all of the soil. by proteamundi

What a beautiful green roof! Besides looking nice, a green (living) roof has tons of benefits:they insulate (feel cooler at home in the summer and warmer in the winter, thus save money on energy bills!), filter pollution, reduce storm water run-off, and naturally cool the air, reducing what’s known as the “heat island effect.” by henrietta

Homemade Corn Dogs @Caitlin Burton Burton Burton Burton Burton Brunquell  I did this with my kiddos tonight. I didn't have sticks so we cut the hotdogs and made mini-corn dogs.  It worked great. One note though: after drying off the hotdogs, I put them in a bag full of corn meal and shook it until they were coated. Because before doing so, the batter just slid right off the hot dogs.  So maybe add that to the recipe.  KB by graciela

Most bulbs do just as well in containers as they do in the ground. Create pots of spring joy with your favorite tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths by sinking them in the ground so they get winter cold or storing the containers in a cold garage or storage shed. When the bulbs fade, replace them with warm-weather favorites such as callas, cannas, or caladiums for summer-long beauty. by Hercio Dias

Sweet, Crunchy Winter Carrots -   Create this mini root cellar to preserve your root vegetables. To make a nifty, mini root cellar right in the garden, simply bury a bucket and cover it with a straw bale. Keeps them fresh, sweet and crisp as they would be in the ground, but you don't have to go digging for carrots in midwinter! I'm going to try this with potatoes too. Genius! by lemai13

The simplest way to connect with the energy of crystals is to hold them in your hand(s) The more you do this and take the time to tune in or resonate with the crystal's energy, the more effortless and powerful it becomes. Don't try too hard or judge your experience as that shuts down the two-way flow of the energy. Just stay relaxed and curious and see what happens. Trust and know that it is possible to connect with the stone "beings" because it really is!! ♥tami by marta

Love this idea! Place a plastic kiddie pool in the ground & landscape around it. It's easy to clean & looks nicer than having it above ground. Plus, big dogs won't be able to chew it up or drag it around & it wont crack because the kids can't jump on the edges. #DIY #In #Ground #Dog #Pool by cristina

Is there anything better than an ice-cold protein shake after a hard and hot workout? The weather gods have apparently decided to cancel winter in California this year, and just have summer all year round, so this iced shake is a lifesaver. It only takes a minute to make from ingredients we always have in the kitchen anyway, and it has as much high-quality protein as any shake you can buy. by bertha

"A green roof, or 'living roof' really helps regulate the temperature of a house or building, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. You can even graze your goats on them! Indeed: goats can climb ladders, they are quite agile! generally only grass or wild plants that do not require deep soil are used or found on living roofs, and it is better to plan a building from the beginning to accomodate a green roof, retro-fitting is an expensive idea..." by Jinx62
