Too much time on your hands? An excellent opportunity to dive into rewarding, earthly activities like gardening.
Propagate your own houseplants from simple cuttings placed in water (clear containers that allow for sun work best).
Seeds harvested from local fruits and vegetables is an inexpensive way to spring an edible garden. No pots? No problem! Almost any type of container, particularly those destined for the dump, make great vehicles for plant life.
Plastic water bottles can easily by cut in half horizontally with scissors. Take the top half and invert it into the bottom, lining up the spout, which enables watering from the bottom.
A readily available crop of cans and plastic containers work well to house newly budding seeds.
- Puncture the bottom with a few mini puncture holes. (No drill, hammer or ice pick? No problem! We used a phillips screwdriver and a rock.)
- Add a layer of shells, rocks or sand.
- Fill with least a few inches of potting soil.
