Start A Veggie Patch
Every season is great time to start growing veggies in your own backyard, as most vegetables are only compatible with certain weather conditions. And, not only is it a cost effective way to make sure your diet is packed full of fresh veggies, growing your own produce at home is also an incredibly rewarding project.
For those that have never heard of a bug hotel, we’ll start off by explaining what it is, and you’ll soon understand why every backyard needs one! While attracting bugs into your garden might not sound like something that you want to do, it may surprise you to learn that insects are an integral part of any successful garden.
Some insects help control and reduce the population of detrimental insects, otherwise known as pests, and are also responsible for the pollination of ornamental flowers and food crops. Providing a safe haven for these insects to hibernate and breed within your garden year round will encourage healthy pollination and keep nasty parasites away.
There’s no better smell than that of a fresh Christmas tree. And, while they bring sensory cheer to your home throughout December and in the lead up to the big day, making the tough call to take it down in January is not something we look forward too. But, instead of tossing onto the side of the road for collection or making a trip down to your local tip to dispose of it this year, why not repurpose it instead.
