Can anyone tell me where I might be able to find information on the relationship (or lack thereof) between Corn & Alyssum? I know Alyssum is a great companion, but I'm wanting to make sure that it'll fit in and get along with my Corn bed which also houses melons, snow peas, beans & pumpkins. Any info will be appreciated and I thank you in advance. :)

Perhaps the most lovely example of the triad of resources, skills and vision I have seen expressed in a wooden structure. Kudos to all three facets for what you have built...a whimsical but purely artistic structure that will be enjoyed for generations.

I love it when people take the initiative to make things themselves. Have some real fun - see attached images. Some types of stone such as marble and onyx allow a very quality light to come through them - no glare and you get a natural pattern from the stone. They also make incredibly cool swinging interior shutters (set in a grid of small angle iron) for say a bathroom - great light in the bathroom and makes a soothing light for the area outside too (deck/patio). A house that is a lamp. Think big.

@Steve Masley & @ PermaScapes - thanks so much for the very good information you provided me regarding troughs. The issue of the heat gives me pause...I had not thought about that. I live in Texas near Dallas and it gets very hot here in the summer. So, that may very well be my determining factor. Thanks again.

What a treat to be featured in such a great Ideabook! Thank you, Ms. Tusher for the mention. It seems we are relatively close to each other as well (I am from Marin and now live in San Carlos). Let me know if you are ever down on the Peninsula, I would love to buy you a cup of coffee (or wine)!

I think being mindful of scale is very important. And I agree that proper lighting is absolutely essential.

Hey Kurt, Did you ever imagine how controversial this article would turn out to be?
My thoughts: I prefer beige and off white to the current trend of dreary grey.
Granite seems to be a "keeping up with the Joneses" choice. There are so many other, less expensive options.
Stainless steel appliances - ugh! I can't stand the way the fingerprints look on them, or the constant cleaning to get rid of the fingerprints. I've seen suggestions that oil is the best to clean the appliances, but won't that just attract dust?
I love having an animal print (faux, of course) in a room for that bit of humor.
I also use fake or silk flowers and plants because I have two cats who love to gnaw on greens. They're very real looking (the plants, not the cats) and are changed out with the seasons (and cleaned before being stored.)
But all in all, everyone should make their own choices, decorators and the Joneses be damned!

Amazing. I'm so down and out right now and a lot of it has to do with the overwhelming amount of stuff going on in my brain that is a cause and/or result of researching, analyzing, attempting to perfect, keeping in touch with everyone, second-guessing a wall color, etc. I am going to print this out, highlight each tip, and stick it to my mirror and back of my front door. Thanks again !!

An insight on how to mix the Planting Soil? I dump layers on a large tarp and pull one edge over to the other side, rolling the ingredients back and forth in several directions til I'm satisfied with the blend.

Thanks Steve for the great article & terrific tips! I'm in S Florida & can no longer put my plants in the ground like I used up north since the slugs, snails & lizards seem to feast upon the tender young plants. I started using containers inside a fully screened in area and the tomato & pepper plants are doing ok but have been battling loads of white fly. My basil has also developed black spot fungus, it seems to be a constant struggle.
