    I haven't ever had as much luck growing tomatoes as I have this year, and I'm pretty sure it's the result of double digging, adding amendments, watering regularly, and getting the dang plants in the ground at the right time.  You can see more of my garden here.  Now I have my first ripe tomato of…

    G&T Jelly
    by cluracon

    Glowing, quivering and looking more like an alien invasion than something you should put in your mouth, gin & tonic jelly (jello for those in North America) packs a real punch.

    (PURPLE) Robo-Beetle!
    by M.C. Langer

    Do you want a pet for your home, and you don't like puppies or cats? I made a beetle using a purple plastic case and pieces of dead computers. The legs are from the frame of a PC screen filter. For the movement, I use a toy motor with gear box. The eye is a red LED inside a roll-on deodorant bal…

    Orange Dreamcicle Cupcakes (photos only)
    by shesparticular

    Orange Dreamcicles are one of those awesome treats that just scream summer. The combination of slightly tart orange and sweet creamy vanilla just can't be beat, and making them inside fresh orange rinds makes them extra special (and delicious). If these photos have your mouth watering and you ne…
