Elsewhere: Gardening requires lots of water…

Certainly true in my case. (LAUGH)

Video: Container Vegetable Garden Update 005

In this update, Douglas talks about bolted lettuce, strawberry runners and the cucumber that..er…might not be…uh…a cucumber, but a watermelon instead. Well, the flowers ARE very similar, even if the fruit is not. (LAUGH)

Update: Bourgogne Live (France) links to my wine bottle waterer video

I noticed that my video from a few weeks ago on using wine bottles as waterers in your gardening containers was getting quite a view views, so I took a moment to hunt down where they were coming from. It seems that the Bourgogne-Live web site in Burgundy, France had embedded the video in one of their stories.

It is very cool to see this page and think of all the French people wondering «Qui diable est le curieusement vêtus Amérique nous dire sur le jardinage?» (“Who the hell is the oddly dressed America telling us about gardening?”) (LAUGH)

Here is a screen shot from the page. You can see it directly on their site by clicking Une bouteille de vin pour sauver les plantes de son jardin de la canicule or the article below.

Elsewhere: Pretty Garden Shed Idea

I came across this lovely “garden closet” on Pinterest the other day. It is certainly worth keeping this around for ideas when you are building your own garden shed.

Elsewhere: Planting tall grasses and other plants in galvanized tubs for privacy barriers

Here is an excellent idea I discovered on Pinterest for creating easy privacy barriers for your home, restaurant or other business. I would also suggest you mount these galvanize containers on some sort of caster system so you can easily move them around when needed. Once planted they would be quite heavy and you might as well build in some flexibility form the very beginning.

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.
