    P-O-T-A-T-O. Unless you’re Dan Quayle.

    And beer is made with barley.

      I didn’t even make that connection. When he applied for the ghost writing position the name on his application was James Danforth Quayle. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I fixed the problem and had to let Danforth go. Back to the job boards, believe it or not there’s barely anyone out there willing to work for beer.

    More garden & DIY hacks:

    Use old shower doors (tempered glass):

    Coldframes
    skylights
    greenhouse walls & roofs
    backdoor awning (used them mottled one instead of clear)

    Our local Habitat ReStore sells them as does some of our thrift stores– clear, a mottled privacy one, smoked glass, etc

    Old windows & storm windows can also be used to make greenhouses

    That AC water waste is pretty slick. I think I may look into more uses for this type of runoff. Not that I have an AC, my apartment would probably exlpode under the strain since my electrical system is 100 years old.

    I love that mini greenhouse! It sort of reminds me of a terrarium.

    I was reading your post and just wanted to see if you’ve heard of the Grow Box? I’ve tried it and it’s actually a bit better and a whole lot less expensive! They hold about a gallon and a half more water. Check it out at http://www.agardenpatch.com
    Happy Gardening!

    Beer acts as bait. Pour it over the fence into the neighbors garden, not your own. BTDT.

    Want to kill slugs? (And who doesn’t?) Sprinkle raw (cheapest) coffee grounds liberally over the garden as soon as you decide that the damage is getting out of hand.

    The damage will stop overnight. Bonus, earthworms like grounds.

    No … used grounds won’t work.

    I like the tire idea, but am wondering what kind/amount of chemicals might be leeched into the soil. Is this something that I should recommend to my landscape design clients?

    • doccat5

      Do not use tires for veggies! Most still contain harmful chemicals can leach into your food crops. Ok for flowers.
