I used banana peel to fertilize. I heard this from my son-in-law who is a Master Gardener, then read it on Hometalk. As my roses had been looking sad the past couple of years I was ready to try anything. See 1 mo. results.
WE have loved this addition to the patio. Lettuce, Baby Bok Choy, Spinach, Miniature Bush tomatoes, and all sorts of greens can be grown most of the year here. We have added drip irrigation and that has been terrific.
We had our basement floor stained by Amazing Improvements. We finally chose colors and painted. We thought we'd post a photo of a section that's mostly finished but shows the flooring off. Feels homey to us and the concrete doesn't feel cold. It's been great with 4 dogs and kids. A good choice for the way we live.

That looks great....what do they use to stain the concrete?
