Want to build a small indoor garden, using a plastic tarp layer to protect the floor?

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

Hi,

I really want to build an indoor garden, in a bed of rocks. I need to protect the wooden floor and was thinking of putting a plastic tarp down then fill it up with soil and grow my garden in it. Would this be a problem for drainage after watering plants? I have a heated wooden floor and I do not want to damage it. I cannot think of any other plant to keep my floor protected… Also would a heated floor during winter do any harm? Any advice?

Thanks in advance!

    Is it possible to adjust the power of blowing/suction on a garden tool ?

    Sunday, July 31st, 2011

    I have a combo tool. It blows the dirt, leaves etc. to create a pile with certain attachment. With a different attachments it sucks the pile of dry leaves into the bag attached that could be emptied in a waste can. Lately, it blows so hard (even after turtle/hare adjustment), that it really blows out mulch(naturally hardened over 18 months) from the flowerbed along with the dry leaves. On the other hand, its suction has gotten so weak, that the nozzle has to be held steady within an inch of the surface (say driveway, steps), to pickup the dry leaves.
    I would like to increase the suction power, so I can walk around sweeping the area. At the same time, I would like to reduce the blowing power, so I can slowly move the dry leaves in a nice pile in a corner.
    Thanks in advance.

      What is a good flower for an indoor garden?

      Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

      We were recently forced to roof over the open air atrium in the center of our house, due to constant wood rotting and poorly designed drainage. Now we are wishing we had put in a skylight instead because the flower garden we had out there no longer has ANY access to sunlight. Does anyone happen to know of some good plants/flowers that we could do in an entirely artificailly lit setting?

      Thanks in advance for all your aid.

        Must have gardening tools?

        Sunday, July 10th, 2011

        I am going to be moving soon to an area with some small flower beds. I have never had a garden before and know nothing about it. I would like to know what tools I am going to need to be able to keep up small flower beds. Thanks in advance.

            Solar Powered Indoor Plant Lamp?

            Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

            I am planning on trying to make a circuit that will provide light to my indoor vegetable garden. I want it to be able to charge via sunlight during the day then used at night. I want it to power CFL’s for the light source. Actually which light bulbs/whatever would be best for an indoor garden?

            Thanks in advance! :]
            Thanks to those who are answering my gardening help, but I need help with making a electronic circuit, similar to a joule thief, to power a CFL bulb but charging during the day via solar energy.

                Preschool "Pond" Program Ideas?

                Friday, April 1st, 2011

                I am racking my brain trying to come up with some really great ideas for our preschool "End of the Year" Program… We don’t call it a "graduation" with caps or gowns or anything like that…We focus on how much they’ve learned through the year.

                We do 3 "programs" a year: Fall, Christmas and End of the Year.

                2 Years ago we did "Look How We’ve Grown" and did a whole "Garden"/Flower theme- it was SO cute- We acted out Eric Carle’s "The Very Hungry Caterpillar", did 20 little ladybugs (20 kids), etc. Our backdrop was oversized flowers, so it looked like the kids were actually "in" the garden.

                Last year we did an amazing "Big Blue Ocean" and acted out "A House for Hermit Crab" and sang "Down by the ocean" and even did a black-light song! It was awesome and I’m sort of afraid we can’t top it! LOL

                *We always focus on "growing up and moving on", etc. And we always do a little 5-10 mins of "Show Off" time for each class,

                This year we want our theme to be "The Pond" with ducks, turtles and frogs…We plan on doing "lily pad" invitations and outfitting our stage area with blue fabric for water and cattails, etc. However, so far we are STUCK on actual program ideas!!

                We usually make a pretty big deal about it, so we are looking for something a little more involved than reciting "5 little speckled frogs" or changing the words to "London Bridges" or little things like that, like we might do in our classrooms…

                Any ideas for songs, Books, skits, special decor?????

                Thanks in advance!
                Thanks for the ideas—we will be doing a "pond" theme as well as a "Way things grow" theme that I do annually and I will save a lot of the artwork and projects from that for our open house portion of the night.

                A lot of your ideas sounds like SO much fun, but we are not allowed to have animals in our class 🙁

                  Dogs in Aparments….?

                  Thursday, March 17th, 2011

                  So. I am aware that I will not get a dog for a long time, because I am only 15 and already have 3 cats, unless by some miracle my mother says yes (haha, not going to happen x3), but IF I were to get a dog in my current sitiuation… What kind of dogs do well in apartments? It’s on the 3rd floor, and Germany doesn’t have air conditioning, so don’t suggest a dog like a Newfoundland because they really dislike heat, and it gets hot in the summer. I need a dog that would do well with cats, and obviously one that wouldn’t bark too much. Yes, pets are allowed in the apartment, and we own it so that wouldn’t be a problem. We have a balcony, which is pretty big, and a HUGE garden below, so I could take it out there at night just to poop real quick. The dog would also be alone from 7:30 to 1:30 most days, but some days I come home early because school is shorter. I’m also not interested in some dog that you carry around like a fashion accessory and dress up. Not only is it wrong, but I enjoy going for longer walks in the forest, and bigger dogs would make that easier. Also, if you’re just going to tell me ‘OMG YOU MEAN HORRIBLE PERSON YOUR DOG CAN’T BE ALONE,’ save it for someone who cares about your opinion. Dogs can be prefectly happy alone, especially if I can get 2 dogs at the same time like I intend to. Anyways, thanks in advance for the advice ^^ Telling me I’m a horrible person for wanting a dog is pointless and a waste of time. You telling me I shouldn’t have a dog does nothing. You should be off going around trying to rescue dogs from REAL abusive homes.
                  I knew that would come across wrong. I care about your opinion if you’re actually trying to help. But if you’re one of those people who says ‘well dogs shouldn’t be alone you horrible person go throw yourself off a cliff,’ then I don’t care because your answer is not only stupid, but won’t change a thing ._.;
                  Haha person with no picture, you’re so funny. TONS of people have dogs in apartments? How ’bout NYC, where most people live in apartments? Are you honestly trying to say that EVERYONE who lives in an apartment is not suited to be a dog owner?
