Lived in near Colmiers, FR and happened upon their weekly market. Found a stall that had bought all of the inventory from a textile co that went under and they had loads of incredibly beautiful, oil cloth tablecloths. Since not cheap, only bought 6. But 10 years later, they are still gorgeous - so unusual and very French! Every outside party, we get rave reviews about them

What a great find! I remember oil cloths from way back when, so much nicer than plastic and very practical. And very French!

FYI metal beds or troughs try painting them white to keep cool and from rusting out there a good non-toxix paints & or coatings avail as for wood beds either coat and seal inside walls with either coatings or wrap the sides a couple of layers with white 12mil plastic it is very heavy duty it is mainly used or called shrink wrap alternate your vertical seams by 50 % and the iside of your box wont rot for a long time. Take care all

You can also make beautiful planter boxes and garden beds out of concrete block. The benefits to using block are numerous- block doesn't rot, it comes in a variety of colors, it's easy to build with (no screws, hammers etc. are needed) and you can create interesting shapes and designs!

If you go here, you can get some tips on how to build and you can get some free instructions, too: http://info.basalite.com/blog/bid/182674/Tips-for-Building-a-Concrete-Planter-Box-for-Your-Garden-Landscape

Be sure to plant your plum tree far away from any area that you don't want tons of squishy fruit all over! They also throw tons of suckers off their roots. As much as I love the fruit I cant stand the mess, this is the last year for my plum tree.

I planted a Santa Rosa plum and was just about to get a harvest when our subcontractor left the plastic mesh deer fence open, and the deer ate every single plum and as much of the tree as they could reach. They now try to sneak in to eat the trees by lifting the deer fence across the driveway with their antlers and sneaking in - they lay down and get their antlers under the fence and lift it up and wiggle under. Wow, are they into plums! We weighted down the deer fence so hopefully we get the plums this year.

I make basil lemon drops that are wonderful. I put some basil in a sealed contained with chopped basil to get an infused sugar for the rim of the glass and then muddle some basil with vodka, sugar, and fresh lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Cheers!

Does anyone know if bunnies like to eat the tender new growth on this plant? Could it possibly be rabbit-proof?? Everything I've planted with the exception of cactus and agave have been mowed down within days of planting, even when there are established plants of the same variety (here when we bought the place a year ago in Lake Havasu City, AZ). Suggestions for rabbit-resistant ornamentals are appreciated!

So happy to see this article (especially after reading the other idea book "Gardening for the Bees." In that article, the author actually called honeybees "junk." I believe he was greatly misinformed. I loved this Ideabook. Thank you!

I have just recently become a Certified BeeKeeper in SC. My husband is at the Journeyman level and has been keeping bees for years. This year he will have about 75 hives. He also raises queens and sells NUC's. We love our honeybees and the honey they provide :-)
