Elsewhere: Tree branch coasters

I am going to keep my eyes open for the appropriately sized branches in my garden to make some of these for myself and my friends. I think I can fit some branches through my mini band saw or I could use the new electric chainsaw I receive from Troy-Bilt (review coming soon) to create the basic shapes.

Video: Refurbishing an older container

My latest video as part of Troy-Bilt’s Saturday6 is now available on the Troy-Bilt YouTube Channel and mine.

In this video I explain how to refurbish an older container in your garden using my own 16-year-old geranium as an example. This plant was a housewarming gift when we first moved into our home and I am very proud that through regular refurbishment I have been able to keep it around all this time.

Photo: In the (container) garden for August 8, 2012

A few shots from the container garden taken yesterday evening. I counted at least 6 cucumbers starting to fruit in one container and saw new leaves sprouting from the strawberry plants. The zucchini plants are throwing off flowers like crazy, too. I also glimpsed a few tiny sprouts of oregano and spinach coming up in pot 1 and 3. This is a great sign and hopefully they will continue growing into full-fledged plants.

Video: Garden Tip: Wine Bottle Container Waterer

I have many uses for empty wine bottles in my garden. Witness this wine bottle edging video I posted last year.

(How-to: Wine bottle edging for your garden beds project)

Now, in the heat of Summer, wine bottles find a new use as slow waterers for my container plants. I fill them with water and up-end them into the pot. A bit of soil is forced into the neck of the bottle, acting like a sort of wick, which allows the water to slowly drain directly into the roots of the plants. When working correctly, you should only see a water bubble rising up the wine bottle every minute or so.
