A beekeeping nuc box is a hive box only large enough for small a nucleus hive – usually 1/2 the size of a regular hive. We can quickly build FOUR 5-frame nuc boxes from a single piece of plywood. Come see!
The birds see the bright-red faux berries and decide to swoop in for a little snack. A few pecks of that rock hard ‘strawberry‘ and they decide you’re an awful gardener and move on, leaving future strawberries for your own harvest.
I already had the paint, I already had the rocks, but I didn’t have a small paintbrush. So I decided to make one on the fly.
All I needed was a tiny scrap piece of absorbent material & an ordinary clothespin.
I’m pretty eco-conscious, shunning excessive or unnecessary trash wherever possible. To replace flimsy disposable take-out containers I easily made a cute denim dish carrier using worn jeans. It was easy, even for my novice sewing skills!
I easily make my own natural air freshener using only baking soda, essential oil, a repurposed canning jar & some pretty leftover lace. It’s simple to refresh when needed and it’s an inexpensive zero-waste answer to a deodorizing problem.
I make my own natural lavender-scented hand scrub using just 4 standard ingredients. It works wonderfully to scrub the dirt from my hands after a hard day of gardening while still being gentle on my hands. And it makes a perfect gift for a gardener as well.
