    My dh and I have been mulling this over. We would like to buy some land, but it is so terribly expensive here. We know of a few families that have expressed interest in more land for gardening than their backyards can accomodate, so we were thinking that this might be an option. I know in...

    Make a wreath - Here's a neat idea! You will need one worn out garden hose. Cut the hose into one 4 foot (or so) piece. Loop into a wreath, tie together with wire to keep circular shape and decorate with a garden theme. You can use old gardening gloves, seed packets, small gardening tools...
