Re: Keep Seedlings Warm Outside With Holiday Lights

Another great idea Greg! Thanks for sharing.

Re: DIY Starter Raised Bed For Kids

Pete, I was curious about the PT as well. You could probably put some landscape fabric between the soil and PT lumber to minimize contact and alleviate concerns. Another thing I was thinking about if I do this would be to add either small drainage holes or cut slats into the bottom with the landscape fabric to ensure no standing water and extend the life of the bed. Either way, this is a great project Greg and one I am definitely thinking about for my 2 1/2 year old daughter!

Re: How to Improve Your Stock Options

I would assume, please someone correct me if I'm wrong, that you could also can the resulting stock in a pressure canner to store the stock, rather than using the fridge or freezer. I should try this sometime! Thanks for the info.
