    Just saw the President confirm that Osama bin Laden is DEAD. I bet he's one very surprised terrorist right now, what with expecting 72 virgins and all.......

    15 April 2011 Compost Bin 15 April 2011 Compost Bin A compost bin is made from 4 by 4 by 8 foot lattice, held in place with standard fence posts, and tied to the post using plastic ties. This structure lasts about five years before needing replacement, due to damage and rotting of the lattice...

    I can't believe it! BIL got married. They were both deep in debt and have made numerous and repeated comments about how "lucky" we are to be debt free - even though they do & have (had, they separated already but that's not the story) much more than us. So a part of their wedding present we...
  4. Household notebooks and home manuals
    I have been reading the posts on household notebooks and organization with great interest. I live in a small one bedroom house. The bathroom is so small that you can sit on the potty and wash your hands in the sink. Lol! However, I have enough stuff for a two story house. I have gotten...

    I am needing to redesign my compost bin. I made one using a trash can with the holes. By the end of the summer last year, I ditched the trash can and just started throwing things in a pile. The trash can just became way too small for the amount that we compost. So, I'm looking to either...

    I made my compost bin today, it was really easy. I think the most important thing is to make sure the lid locks on nice and tight, because you need to roll the can at least once a week. I used DH's power drill to put the holes down the sides, put a layer of shredded paper, then some dry leaves...
  7. Homesteading and gardening
    We started a compost bin a couple of months ago. And already it is full!! It's one of those big trash bins with a lid (tat would almost fit a person inside), DH drilled some holes in it and rolls it around every now and then. So my question is: how fast does stuff compost? I hate to throw out...

    Do you hit the thift bin at garden centers? I love to buy off the markdown section. It's a thrill to revive a plant that looks like it might be gone. I like Lowe's markdown section. I got hanging fern baskets there for fifty cents-- they had been windburnt, but I just trimmed them back and...

    Had three of these in SC, but haven't gotten one here now, as they just started allowing composting in the city a couple of years ago. Easy to build, and cheap! Most places will give you the pallets for free. http://www.digitalseed.com/composter/bins/palletbin.html

    What do you do with it? I'm too lazy to go and take leftovers to the compost bin every time so I tend to take them out every other day. But I still haven't figured out what to do with them and I get tired of looking at a plate full of leftovers sitting on the counter. What kind of a system do...

    I'm curious as to what goes in your recycle bin and if you even recycle. Do you wash out bottles and cans before you dispose of them? Do you throw anything with glass, newspaper, plastic, or metal in the bin or are you more discriminating? Are there certain things the recycle center refuses to...

    I found a bag of old jewley earrings with clip back and odd and ends of buttons with pearls and gold all fake, but real looking stones. The bag was $3.00, there ar e about 20 pieces. Some are scratched though. So I'll figure out another use, maybe paint over it? I thought about using these to...

    I have a couple of questions about composting. I want to start a vegetable garden next year and was told that compost is a inexpensive and organic way to fertilize. But I dont have a clue where to start!!! I know that it needs to be in a sunny place and be turned and watered, but do I NEED to...
