Can I use a solar panel, a lawn garden battery and some sort of copper wire to warm my garden soil for earlier planting?
I have a cloche set up but want to keep my soil warm at night inexpensively.
I want to build a vertical strawberry garden using a plastic 55 gallon barrel. How do I cut and shape the little oval holes in the side of the barrel? I see these in photos but don't know how to get them to retain the shape.

It's spring! That means that it's time to be excited about doing some gardening and helping plants grow grow grow. To help get you in the spirit we're going to be having a Garden Contest coming soon. We don't have any further details about prizes and dates and such just yet, but it's not too far off in the future. So if you have any garden Instructables you've been thinking about publishing, hold off until the contest begins. UPDATE Garden Contest will begin this Wednesday. Prizes include some sweet and handy tools for the garden including a camera that helps you make timelapse movies of your plants growing!

Painted garden plastic pot using yogurt?
Is there some genius out there who can devise a hand (or foot) powered leaf and twig chopper? I'm groing old cutting this stuff by hand with scissors or shears. It must be rugged, and able to chew up wet stuff as well as dry, brittle or stringy. Mother Earth needs you!!

Hello, I was thinking about ripping out all the rotted wood in my backyard garden and replacing it with basically a waist high garden area to grow herbs and I stumbled upon papercrete one day. I've never used papercrete let alone concrete in general. I was just wondering if I could get some general help on where to start. I'd like to make this out of papercrete block and papercrete mortar if all possible but I don't know what amount of newspaper, water, and portland concrete I need... or even how to make molds. -Jimmy

There are some fairly good large printed pictures of say, a large Frangipani or Rose in the stores at a reasonable price. If I could treat them in some way to withstand the weather on a South facing wall (Oz), they would be perfect for a garden art work. What do you think? Can it be done?

I have 8 glass rods, 1 inch diameter and 4 to 6 feet long. Believe it or not, they were rods in the master closet of a 60's house we purchased 10 years ago. I still can't think of anything to do with them, but would love to make some kind of garden installation. We are VERY skilled. Any ideas greatly appreciated.

I'm organizing a community lead market garden project within Wales (UK) to help those most in need within our community. We have little to no money for this project as almost 90% of the volunteers are unemployed, privet funding for our project is hard to come by we have only found about £400, so we are intending to use as much recycled stuff as we can. I really need plans for a con and tire or wattle cob storage shed/ shelter for myself and my volunteers to hide out in when the weather turns bad And also some plans for a soda/plastic bottle green house. If you can help please do as i've not done anything like this before!

I threw some hay off my lawn and some green weecds into a garbage can, some sugar and yeast and formented it to slug beer but the slugs did not like it. It then fermented further to vinegar, and a crust of green "Mold?" covered it. seems to have protected the vinegar from further fermentation. I tried a second bigger batch ( morning glory weeds) with less sugar but after a few days of good fermenting it went rotten and stinky. So there are probably thresholds for sugar content. Would the yeast be a way of adding fertilizer to organic gardens? Yeast can (I think) convert urea and nitrate to protein. Perhaps some green stuff has enough sugar to work without sugar addition. vine prunings? maybe. The first batch, i put bleach in to kill off microbes before I added water and yeast. Perhaps hydrated lime would work instead of bleach and also get the ph good for yeast fermentation. This might be a cheap way of liming your garden. (Here in victoria, hydrated type s lime is cheaper than limestone for garden addition. (But it contains more calcium!) The "yeast tea" or vinegar tea could be used on the garden and the weeds could then be transfered to normal compost or used as mulch. It might be an alternative way of using diseased materials of composting seedy weeds to kill the seeds. Brian

I got a barrel but am unsure what was in it. If I take it to a car wash and hose it out, will it be safe to use?
I am setting up a rain barrel collection system to water my vegetable garden. It is a very large white barrel. I received it from the composting/recycling center at work and they weren't sure what was in it. They already used a pressure hose to rinse it out. I am planning on taking it to a car wash and spending quite a bit of time hosing it with soap and then rinsing. Is this a good idea.

I came up with a 'fantastic idea'; I made it, I took photos while doing so, I uploaded my photos, and had just started to write up the steps...when I decided to use the Instructables "Search" so I could root around previous submissions to come up with a great title for my 'great submission'. That's when it happened, I found a submission really similar to my new unique and great idea. So this is the dilemma --do I post or do I abandon? Thank you!
