    I recycle old commercial tomato cages by removing the top, wrapping the shorter cage with chicken wire and placing around plants that need protecting (or for identifying perennial plants when they have no leaves).

    I love using old boots as funky planters for marigolds (though I certainly wouldn't grow any food crops in them).

    If I found out someone had fed me potatoes grown in car tyres I would punch their face in?

    "green tea" is working wonders for my garden as a fertiliser, Russian comfrey is apparently best, but I don't have any of that (cheeky request…..anyone want to send me some Russian comfrey?). If you go out and collect some stinging nettles, put them in bucket, add water, leave it for 3 or four weeks, you will end up with a nitrogen filled liquid fertiliser for free, it absolutely stinks but the plants love it.?

    I cut up old mini-blind vinyl slats to make plant markers. I make one end pointed and use a permanent marker to write the plant name on it?

    I recently learned that plastic is a endocrine distruptor and it was recommended to remove all things plastic. Even though these are very creative ideas for growing food, I question if it is healthy, growing food in plastic containers and when the sun warms them, they will leach their chemicals. Example: it is not recommended to drink water that comes from plastic bottles. During transportation or sitting in front of the store, with sunlight hitting them, they leach their chemicals in the water etc. Do a Google search to find out more about the harmful chemical that plastic emits.?

    I recycle discarded carpet (1) to cover beds in the winter to hold down the mulch while letting the rain in and protecting the soil from freezing. (2) as soil cover between melon and squash/pumpkin plants, suppresses weeds and keeps the fruit off the dirt..(3) as pathways in my greenhouse (4) to lay on when working on my tractor. (5) as insulation for the north side of the greenhouse with the padding for this one. can be rolled up for ventilation on sunny days.?
