Take the strain out of lifting large planters and pots by filling the pot one-third to one-half full with packing peanuts. Be sure to place a piece of landscape fabric on top of the packing peanuts and then layer on your potting soil. To reduce the weight of the pot further, use a potting mix with lots of vermiculite and peat moss.
Sick of creatures munching on your just planted flower bulbs? Keep them out by staking netting over the bed of flowers. Come springtime, simply remove the netting or cut holes in the cloth and let the plants grow through.
Keep tabs on your garden. Create a scrapbook using an inexpensive photo album and add your plant tags and sticks to it each season. Then, make it as detailed as you’d like by adding information as to where the plants were purchased and where the plant was located in your garden. Add your own artistic flair with sketches of your garden or photographs
Donate extra produce to a food bank or charity. Sell it to your acquaintances, at a farmers market, or to restaurants that source locally, which is an increasingly popular trend. Use it to barter for a car wash, hedge trimming, or goods from other hobbyists, such extra seafood caught by recreational fisherman.
Seed pods are more expensive than loose seeds, yet cheaper than many starter plants. In 2015, I bought Miracle-Gro Gro-ables pods for about $1 each. One pod usually produces two or more plants, so it averages out to paying cents per plant.
Just be careful not to space your plants too tightly. Some plants won’t reach their full size — or yield — when crowded. For instance, when one researcher increased the spacing between romaine lettuces from 8 to 10 inches, the harvest weight per plant doubled. (Remember that weight yield per square foot is more important than the number of plants per square foot.)
