We started off with the "gift" of a little playhouse (formerly the top of a wooden playground structure) - and have commenced Operation Playhouse Reno. I've painted it, and we've added a
little seating area (with a bench for the dolls as well).
The playhouse is going to be one of my projects this summer, and I can't wait to make it an amazing little spot for the girls to play. I'm seeking out any other brilliant ideas to make this spot fantastic. If you've got a sudden brainstorm, please leave it in the comments! Thanks a bunch!
It's funny sometimes how something so simple can make such a big difference. These homemade garden screens are now a favourite accessory in my garden.
I first start using them to keep the squirrels and birds from dining in my veggie beds. Not only did they work but the fine mesh screen kept the moths out too! From there I realized I could also use them as vine supports, and to support winter covers over my raised beds (I grow veggies throughout the year). Lots of uses from one item!
Many crops are self-pollinating and can remain covered (lettuces, legumes, spinach...) but for those that benefit from insect pollination, just remove the covers once the plants are well-established.
There's a complete material list and instructions on my blog. You can make them without any power tools and it's simple to do. And better yet, the squirrels won't thank you! http://www.empressofdirt.net/most-useful-gar...
