Garlic Chives from Sprouted ClovesSprouted garlic cloves?  Turn them into chives for cooking!

I love garlic and keep a lot of it on hand for cooking and using medicinally.  A raw clove of garlic a day is great for your health.  Sometimes I don’t get an opportunity to use it all up before it begins to sprout – so instead of throwing into the compost pile I’ve started growing it.

DIY Green Gardening Projects for Spring

Get Dirty!

Spring has sprung, and we’re all getting in the mood – the gardening mood that is.  It’s time to gather our seeds and our gardening tools, and get some dirt on our hands.

Have you decided what you want to plant this spring?  How about adding some delicious herbs to your garden landscape.  Not only do they add some tasty flair to your favorite dishes, they’re also lovely to look at.

Don’t have a ton of space for planting a vegetable garden?  Don’t worry, you can still grow some veggies in a one-pot vegetable garden.  This is also an excellent way to get your feet wet if you’ve never grown your own food before.  Try it – you’ll be amazed at how simple, easy, and tasty vegetable gardening can be.

If you’re short on cash, want to reuse some of your old stuff, or just want to add a unique look to your garden, then get creative with planters.  Don’t know what to do with that old run-down wheelbarrow?  Don’t chuck it in the garbage, grow some greens in it!
