A handy trick is to turn the handle on a tool that you use often into a makeshift ruler. Large handled tools like rakes, hoes or shovels may be used like measuring sticks. Place the handles on the floor, then set a measuring tape alongside them. It’s a good idea to label distances with a permanent marker. This modified ruler will serve you well as you begin working in your garden.
When the fall season arrives, you need to plant autumn edibles. A pumpkin can become a planting container for kale and lettuce. Once you’ve cut its top and scooped the insides out, spray the inside and edges with Wilt-Pruf to keep the pumpkin from rotting.
When mowing your lawn do not cut it too closely to the dirt. If you leave more height to your grass, the roots grow further into the ground, making the lawn stronger and more resistant to drying out. Short grass is more prone to getting dried out and dead grass.

Do you enjoy fresh mint leaves grow and take over your lovely garden but still like them? You can control their growth by placing them inside a pot or container!

A quality garden starts from seeds. The environmentally conscious way to create a new garden is to start with seeds.

As fall arrives, it is the time to prepare for planting fall edibles. A pumpkin makes a great container, and costs less than a clay pot. Simply cut the pumpkin open at the top, so you can remove the seeds and insides. After that, spray Wilt-Pruf along the edges and on the inside of the pumpkin, so it doesn’t rot. You are prepared to plant after this is done.
