I made a few adjustments to this great cold frame/greenhouse DIY: 1) flip the box upside down and use it as a cloche to cover the plants so the clear part is on top. 2) use the lid as the base & line it w/ black plastic/paper to absorb more heat from the sun. 3) use biodegradable 4oz espresso cups (google to buy) for seeds. To transplant seedlings, cut bottom off cup, place in the ground - updates & new projects at the 2 DIY Board, https://www.pinterest.com/mclovebuddy/2-diy-garden-outdoors/
DIY awning cover: Make an economical protective cover for a roll up awning WHEN TRAILER IS STORED at home. Use two section of black corrugated black drain field pipe without holes. Use a battery saw and cut a two inch section out the length of both pipes. They snap over the rolled up awning, blocking hail and sun light.
Dog Run idea-There is a lot of good info online about creating a dog run that is safe and healthy for them. When you create your dog run, I recommend either using slightly raised wood decking or synthetic turf on the ground so that it doesn’t turn into a mud pit. Both solutions look great, and are easy for you to hose down. I am including some photos of very nice dog runs. Shelter from sun and rain will keep your dog comfortable in any weather.
Keep Spiders Away ~ My Slice of Sunday- not only is this a good way to rid your home of spiders but it really works on wasp...i had a ton of nests in my yard...they are nearly all gone after using this spray. You dont really need the vinegar...2 cups of water..1 tsp of dawn detergent...1 tsp of peppermint oil....and they are gonners, make sure to wait until dusk...thats when they are the least likely to sting you and when they are tired and returning home to sleep.
Get a programmable thermostat for your water heater = turn the temps down an hour or two after you go to bed, or during the warmer times of the day, or the times when you typically don’t use your hot water. No reason to heat what is not being used!
This is a cool idea for an outdoor patio, porch, or deck. You can roll them down for privacy or when the sun is shining right in. It would look great if they were all closed at night and there was seating and soft lighting.
