A Few Notes on Gardening

Because growing seasons vary depending on which part of the country (or which country) you live, have a chat with your local garden store to figure out what the best plants are for your climate. It's still a little cold up here in New York to plant much, but down in Texas you can probably start going all out in your garden, whether you use potted plants or have a big plot of land.


4. Speaking of fairies, make them their own little stacked garden. / Via

Browse eBay, Amazon, your local resale shop, or Wine Pine to buy crates online, or call up a local winery to see if they have extras. Look for butterfly plants to attract the pretty bugs. Directions (more like guidelines) here.

6. Get off of Twitter and feed the birds. / Via

This simple, acorn-shaped bird feeder can hang anywhere and costs $30 or less to make. Directions here. Option 2: put out a plate and dump loose birdseed in it.


11. Drink lots of beer. Then stick green stuff in the empties. / Via

This one's brilliant, because the plants are self-watering. No more dead things (unless you drunkenly water them with beer). Directions here.

14. Build a fire pit so you can make s'mores all spring and summer. / Via
