REAL SIMPLE FOOD: GRILLED ONIONSPeel and cut onion to remove the center bulb and its roots. Save center and toss onion pieces in a liberal amount of olive oil and place in a oven-proof pan. Bake in center of hot oven tossing occasionally. When the majority of the pieces are crisp on the edges–golden brown–turn out onto paper towel, dry off the majority of the oil, salt and serve hot. The photo below is of quartered onions in which the center was not removed. They hold together better but they are not always cooked consistently throughout. And then, of course, there is no recycling.
I've tried starting seeds indoors several different ways over the years. So far this is my favorite method because the soil is always exactly the right moisture level and it's very easy to see with the naked eye when it's time to add water to the planter. There's no guesswork involved and the plants seem to love it.
2 .Choose a strawberry cultivar that is known to produce a large berry crop. Most people say that short-day varieties will give you the most strawberries.
PlantingAs most blueberry bushes can grow very large, the best option for a patio or other urban garden is to plant a dwarf variety. Blueberry bushes begin producing after about three years, so you’ll have berries in a more timely manner if you buy a plant that is a couple years old as opposed to starting from seed. We recommend the dwarf ‘Tophat’ variety, or any of the interesting varieties produced by BrazelBerries, such as ‘Jellybean’ or ‘Peach Sorbet’— both perfect for containers.
Dwarf blueberries prefer an acidic soil with pH between 4.0 and 5.5. You can buy test kits from your local nursery to test your soil pH. If your soil pH is too high, you can add peat moss to bring it down; if your soil pH is too low, you can add a little bit of dolomite lime to the soil. You can also buy acidic soil from nurseries if you would prefer.
Grow blueberries in a large pot as they need the space to grow well. 12″-16″ in diameter should suffice.
To eliminate the guesswork in selecting the right size containers for your plants, we’ve put together a list of commonly grown herbs, veggies, fruit and flowers along with the minimum pot sizes required by each.
January-FebruaryOrder seeds and garden supplies. Prepare lights and tools for starting seeds. Clean and maintain garden tools.
MarchFrost seed white dutch clover in yard and garden paths where weeds are under control.

Make the clippings between 10 inches wide to a feet in total, reducing above a bud at the top to eliminate the capture tip and below one at the platform. Keep one foliage at the top and eliminate all the reduced results in.
Making your own supports in situ is perfectly possible, and they will be tailored to the individual requirements of your roses or clematis or clump of asters. You don't need a team of gardeners; just an ax, a mallet, and the ability to form a circle.
Using different plant material for twisting can lead to some wonderful color combinations, though it will fade after about six weeks.
Select a non-toxic material such as untreated wood, modular blocks, or recycled plastic lumber. Also, check out the Internet for raised bed kits options. Remember to reinforce the corners of the structure with brackets or wood blocks for extra structural stability. Don’t use railroad ties or pressure treated boards that contain any creosote or arsenic.
Sometimes, cheaper is better.
