Build an Old Window Greenhouse

Building an old window greenhouse is not exactly as easy as it sounds. One greenhouse used to be a bunch of discarded windows and was transformed into a very beautiful creation. All it takes is a little effort and a little know how to transform something into an amazing greenhouse. It does not matter what ability you have presently, you can always learn something new and make a greenhouse, if you want to. You just have to be open to it.

Key Takeaways:

  • As homeowners across the country upgrade to insulated windows, older windows are relegated to the junk heap
  • These include wood-framed units that have seen better days, aluminum-framed storm windows that are no longer needed
  • You can find them in dumpsters, piled up on remodeling job sites, for sale cheaply through salvage companies

Healthy soil makes for a healthy garden – Visalia Times-Delta

This particular article is about gardening, and how sometimes soil can become an issue. In order for your plants and vegetables to grow the soil must be handled a particular way. Not to mention the items it needs in it to really perform well. The soil must have minerals and it must not be compact. When it becomes compact it does not allow air to move freely, as well as water so that minerals can be dispersed evenly. When soil is compacted it can not perform these tasks. However there are ways to solve the problem if it ever occurs.

Key Takeaways:

  • If your lawn or garden has brown spots even though you watered both diligently, it could be due to soil compaction.
  • If weeds are taking over or you have quackgrass, knotweed, or chicory, your soil probably needs some attention.
  • To alleviate a soil compaction problem, add organic compost to your soil, which will loosen it almost immediately.

“Soil compaction is most likely to happen to heavier soils like clay or loam; however, when heavy equipment travels over it, even sandy soil can become compacted.”
