Summertime is perfect for spending time in the garden! Whether you're growing food and flowers or shrubs and trees, all plants need care, compost, water, and a bit of love to grow just right. We want to know everything about your garden, big or small - how you choose and care for plants, build a window box, take advantage of local conditions, construct an auto-watering system, or simply make your garden beautiful. Collect your best gardening skills, advice, creations, or tips and tricks, then put them in an Instructable for our Get in the Garden Contest
and win an amazing indoor composter fromNatureMill
brings composting to the home user. It is essentially a miniaturein-vessel system
. Waste is collected right where it is generated-in the kitchen. A computer controls the temperature, air flow, moisture, and mixing to accelerate the process and eliminate the backbreaking work. Everything is fully self contained in a modern, attractive container. Just a few square feet of floor space is required. No special plumbing or electrical connections are needed, other than a standard electrical outlet. There is no need to handle and transport the rotting material.
Best of all, NatureMill
provides home gardeners with a source of rich, organic fertilizer. And there is something uniquely satisfying about witnessing the entire food chain: from the garden, to the dining table, and back to the garden again.
So, want to win a PRO model of the NatureMill
composter and start making compost from your household scraps? Then share your gardening knowledge and help out all the other people out there who are still working on their green thumbs. As usual, we interpret the theme broadly - no matter the size of your garden, if it involves anything green and growing we want to see it!
