Poll: Do you grow any of your own fruits and vegetables?
Today's poll asks: Do you grow any of your own fruits and vegetables?
Tips For Ordering From Garden Catalogs
January is the month most garden catalogs arrive in our mailboxes. Each one is chock-full of compelling descriptions and colorful, larger-than-life photographs of perfect plants.
Growing Monster Vegetables
Have you ever wondered how people grow those gigantic vegetables that you see at the county fair? You've seen them-the scale crushing pumpkins that weigh in at 1,000 pounds, the 6 pound carrots and the cabbage heads twice the size of basketballs.
Caring for a Bougainvillea
I've had a Bougainvillea for 2 years as a houseplant. It's tall, has lots of leaves, but does not flower. It looks sickly, how can I better care for it?
Curling Leaves on a Anemone Coronaria Bulbs
I have planted some Anemone Coronaria Bulbs in pots indoors. They started out with full leaves but now they are starting to curl and seem a bit dry. They were in a window in sunlight but, possibly too cold? Any advice would be helpful.
Epsom Salts for Roses
I've heard that Epsom salts are good for roses. How much of it should I use and how often? Do you have any other suggestions for care of roses?
What Is This Tree? (Ornamental Plum Tree)
I have several of these trees growing in my yard. They are volunteers, meaning they just grew up on their own. I live in the Pacific Northwest (Western Washington near Puget Sound). New ones grow up around the largest tree so I'm assume they are from seed from the tree. They have some white flowers in the spring and the fruit shown in one of the pictures is about the size of a jumbo olive and olive shaped or plum shaped.
Angel (Southern Belle)
Angel (Southern Belle) is 9 months old. Sept 1, 2005 I came home from a painful bunch of needle shots for nerve damage. "Another stray" I said at my door. So again I let one in. This one though is NOT LEAVING ME!
Coffee Creamer Cartons
I like to recycle things and I have found that the containers for coffee creamers are great for elbow macaroni.
Uses for Cereal Bags
One thing I do as an avid recycler is to use the empty bag inside the cereal box for crushing graham crackers to make crust. I use crackers and dried bread to make crumbs for meatloaf.
Photo Toy Box
My son has a boy in his class that is moving and we want to give him a wooden toy box with photos for a going away gift. What do you suggest to use to put the photos onto the wood so they would be permanent and it would not hurt the pictures?
Cranberry Walnut Bread
I would like a recipe for cranberry walnut bread like that sold at Starbucks.
Can You Dye Carpet?
I have tried everything to clean my carpet but still have stains. Has anyone ever dyed carpet? Have you had good results? Please help, as I can't afford to replace it right now.

For decoupage, use a diluted solution of ordinary white glue to seal in the decorative paper you have applied to your object. It dries to a nice, shiny surface.
Faded Mock Crocodile Purse
