I LOVE this idea for my garden! Did you know that you can grow another complete celery
stalk from the bottom piece that you cut off and throw away? Cut off the end that you would normally "throw away" and then place it in a small dish filled with warm water.
Next "pot" the celery stalk (Stalk Side Up) or place in your garden. Just dig a small hole, fill it with water and set the end in the hole, then cover it up with an inch or so of soil. Water thoroughly. That is it! Now the "end" will grow into a full stalk of celery! Rinse and Repeat and you never have to buy celery again! Talk about a way to save money! This photo is taken on day 7 and as you can see it is working!
We wanted to find something unique to use for our pathway and patio. We couldn't find anything we really liked. When I came across this concrete form from Lowes I was so excited. Not
only does it look great but it was very cost effective.

My only problem with these is the weight of the concrete bags. I can't lift them on my own so
I have to rely on someone else - other than that they are super easy to do, and look great. One other pointer - if you mix in any concrete stain be sure to measure accurately so each batch has the same amount of stain or you will end up with wild variations of colors.
Anyone with ideas in this area for plants. Full sun, drought tolerant, low maint, favorite color purple. Should I raise the empty area in the front to place some annuals and perrennials. Thinking about purple coneflower, purple salvia, purplewave petunias.? Should I move the smaller shrubs Help! Please
