It is a well-known story in England that ladies used to strew seeds of wildflowers out the windows of trains, helping to seed and establish banks of wildflowers along the railroads right-of-way. Not sure how true it is, but the flowers are often there in abundance and it is just the sort of genteel querilla tactic that English ladies would employ.

I too think indiscriminate "bombings can do as much harm as good. If one feels strongly about it, join a group that does this legally. Lady Bird Johnson established a native flower program and in Texas, the group worked with the highway people to turn verges from manicured and expensive to maintain grass and shrubs to native plant habitats.

Here are two 'different' options for countertops. GlassECO, from Fisher Recycling, is a custom, recycled glass counter top that comes in a wide variety of colors. Below are two countertops, and a detail of one of our favorites, a green glass finish. This is a great option to add an eclectic element to your project, and is also environmentally and budget friendly. Charleston Forge is a more traditional, yet beautifully unique approach, using hammered metal and hand-planed wood to make custom wooden pieces that are truly remarkable and one of a kind. They offer a wide variety of finishes, and also offer quality leathers and glass tops. Below is a tabletop they constructed.

My boss says that used coffee grounds around her potatoes keep the potato bugs off of them. She also uses stove ashes as a sort of fertilizer. She plants everything according to date/moon/Farmer's Almanac every year and her results are usually really good. I've also heard that human hair clippings around a garden will keep the deer away. I've known people to ask a hairdresser to collect a day or two's worth in a bag for them.

Hair is best if it's not freshly washed. When I was young (we had a garden in the country among our farm crops) we used marigolds planted at the end of each row and human hair collected from brushed over the course of the year and kept in a baggie until use...the point is to keep human smell near the plants even when you're not around. Time for me to dig up all those garden memories though as we're attempting our first in-ground planting this year (fingers crossed).
