David Latimer from Cranleigh, Surrey, with his bottle garden that was first planted 53 years ago and has not been watered since 1972 - yet continues to thrive in its sealed environment. The bottle garden has created its own miniature ecosystem.
the common bowl-shaped baffles are pretty good at keeping squirrels out, but raccoons have no trouble climbing right over them. This DIY raccoon and squirrel baffle is easy to make, inexpensive, and is sure to befuddle even the craftiest of critters.
DIY birdfeeder that can be made in less than 3 minutes. All you need is a Mason jar, chicken feeder, 3 feet of 8 gauge wire and birdseed. Done :) Maybe the thick wire would be good for making fiddlehead sculptures too?
