          How should I decorate my dorm with an $850 budget?

          Monday, January 17th, 2011

          The dorm building used to be a hotel so I have my own bathroom and kitchen to decorate too. The dorm allows pets so I brought my cocker spaniel so I would like a cute way to incorporate her bed and crate. I can replace any of the furniture with my own so I bought a glass, L shaped desk so I can have my computer on one side and I have room to write on the other. My school allows candles and I love candles. I usually choose scents based on the season so now I’m looking for cinnamon, apple, pumpkin, vanilla, etc.

          I kinda want my room to feel like a garden but I don’t want all the bright random colors that most decor aimed at dorm dwellers feature.

          I can paint my dorm as long as the paint is low or no VOCs.

          We have medium colored laminate wood floors and I want espresso furniture.

              Garden Girl TV: Vertical Gardening One(How to Grow Vertically)

              Friday, December 17th, 2010

              Patti Moreno, the Garden Girl, shows you techniques to get more out of limited landspace, by growing up. Check out her website at www.gardengirltv.com This video is available through closed caption(cc) enjoy in any language. FULL TEXT Vertical Gardening Part 1 As urban gardeners, we have a limited amount of space to grow our vegetables and flowers. What I have done is I have employed verticle gardening. Right here as you can see, I have a variety of different cucumber plants. Now, a cucumber is vining crop, which means that with vertical support like this one, you can train it to grow up and the fruit, Take a look right here, can grow perfectly fine on the vine. Different types of crops that work well in a vertical garden are watermelon and pumpkin. Let us go take a look. Here, as you can see, my pumpkin plants are thriving. Pumpkin plants are also vining crops. Now, in the country, where you have a lot of space, you can just let this grow along the ground, but here in a city environment, we do not have all that space. So, what I have done here is, I put together a dog kennel. This is actually really nifty. It is exactly 4 x 4 so it fits perfectly in your raise beds. And, these vines just slough on themselves eventually. You do not have to continuously train them. Okay, so you can go vining crops on vertical supports, but there are other types of plants that also need support like my heirloom tomatoes here, this are Tiffin Mennonite tomatoes, and it grows to be a huge

              Vegetable Gardening?

              Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

              Hi,
              Im starting a new vegie garden from scratch and wondered if anyone could give me any tips on improving the soil, which vegies should go where and ways to get the best possible results.

              The patch consists of 3 long rectangular beds. The soil is very sandy, virtually no rocks at all, the soil is a dark grey/blackish colour in some parts and then a redish brown in other parts. At the momment all ive done is dug the soil through and put in some sheep and cow manure.

              The vegies im going to grow are pretty much all the basics; lettuce, carrots, corn, cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, beans, peas, pumpkin, watermelon, cucumber etc.
              thanks
              Forgot to mention that the top bed has shade from about midday on and the 2nd one from has some around 2-3pm-> the 3rd one is full sun.
