Home, Garden and DIY
I mostly grow round or ball squash, but my thoughts on planting and growing them are the same methods that I have for growing the traditional summer and winter squash. 

There's over 2 dozen photos including a couple of galleries in the back of the book some of the squash varieties, along with their name and if they're summer or winter squash.

Have wine corks laying around and want to make an awesome upcycled cork board? 

This guide will show you exactly how to upcycle your old wine corks.


Times are changing, quickly and not for the better as one would hope. The weather doesn’t always cooperate. Sometimes it is cold when it should be hot and vice versa. Global warming is having a huge impact worldwide.

Bees are on the decline as are butterflies. Many native wildflowers are endangered. It is time for people to wake up and realize what many have already known, that chemicals are not the answer. This is not going to be easy as each person must be willing to unlearn what they have been taught their entire life.

Natural, organic gardening practices that encourage the bees, birds and butterflies as well as the beneficial insects is the only way to change the path we are on. It is important to remember that bees are responsible for every third bite of food, without them, we are in real trouble.

When you are in an organic garden there is no need to worry about picking something off a tree, vine or bush and eating it. There is nothing that compares to a sun ripened warm strawberry or tomato. There is nothing quite as satisfying as knowing you are growing wholesome, natural food the way nature intended.

I hope this book will help gardeners who are already following the organic path learn something new that they did not previously know. For those new to organic gardening or on the line debating if they want to switch from conventional gardening or farming to organic, I hope this book will inspire you to begin the journey. Nothing new is easy, but with determination, one gardener at a time, we can inspire a world of change and leave behind a healthier, better world for future generations to enjoy.

Clutter can damage your health and affect your wealth. Think we’re exaggering? Here's the thing: everything you own needs to be kept clean or you're breathing in dust and creating an environment loved by icky pests. The more useless things you have, the more useless stuff you have to clean. Clutter also affects you financially because if you don't know what you have because it is hidden in among the clutter, you go out and re-buy it. Plus there's the hidden value in junk (defined as something you don't love or need) that's not in your pocket because you haven't gotten round to selling it. Clutter can also lead to despair. Instead of feeling like you're home, you feel like you're in a stranger's (messy) home because you haven't had the courage to make decisions about your things and really put your stamp on your own home. It seems like such a mammoth task that you get exhausted before you even start. Clutter saps energy and makes you feel overwhelmed. But before you hire a skip and chuck everything away, do bear in mind that clutter isn't just having a lot of things. So getting rid of stuff is an important activity, but where do you start? Decluttering is here to help. It will help you to make the commitment today to tackle your clutter, make those vital decisions about what is to go and unlock the brilliant new stress-free life you want and deserve.
Why pay other people to design your kitchen ?

Even when it says free design service you will still be paying for that service through increased kitchen unit and installation costs.
