Yesterday it was again unseasonably warm here in Pittsburgh and I decided to plant tulip & allium bulbs.
The problem was that Saturdays are always super busy for us. So I decided to use my brain for once and get this done quickly. I used my impact drill/driver and a tri-fluted speedbor bit to literally drill holes in the ground.
You could use a spade bit, too. I was able to get all 51 bulbs in the ground in less than 30 minutes. Which helped me save time and do more laundry, LOL.
I put together a few extra tips in the blog post which you can find here http://www.homerepairtutor.com/how-to-quickl...
Let me know if you have any other fall gardening or landscaping tips. I'm always on the lookout for great ideas.

it happens in years like this,I've seen snowstorms ontop of full grown tulips in April in Iowa LOL
Not egg cartons, but egg shells. Spring planting will be here before we know it (the days are already getting longer again, hooray) and I came across the most interesting idea for planting seedlings. I have planted seedlings in egg cartons, then "planted" the carton with seedling, but it never occurred to me to actually plant in empty eggshells. To give credit where due, I stole this idea and picture from this blog:

very sweet idea ,especially to start them for children to learn ! duck eggs may be a little
better size wise but honestly ,they are just cute !
There is nothing fancy about this coffee table. It is simply a pallet cut in half with a couple planks across the top. A bit of white spray paint helps give it a beachy look and seal the wood. Simple, inexpensive, and effective!
