If you have poor soil or very hard clay soil the no dig garden is for you. If this is your first year growing vegetables this is also a great option to save you time and effort in digging it out.
You can build this type of garden on a slope too, you just have to add terraces (like a raised bed) to stop the contents falling away. I made a few of these a few years ago and they produced a great crop.

Most of us want to plant and grow fruit trees at our home garden or in an orchard for their tasty fruits. There are many ways a fruit tree can be propagated – from seeds, from a nursery-bought seedling or by means of Air-layering. The problem with growing fruit trees from seeds is that it may take very long to bear fruits – some times more than ten years – and there is no guarantee that the fruits will taste same as the one from which you got the seeds.
Air-layering is one method of propagating a fruit tree from an existing one, which will bear fruits sooner, and the fruits will taste same as the mother-plant. See how to do this below:
This easy Micro Generator project could come in very useful for camping and if the power goes out. It is small enough that it won’t get in the way and powerful enough to run a household .light bulb. If you can salvage or re-use some materials you could make this project even cheaper… maybe free if you have all of the materials listed.
If you are a lone wolf or have a limited budget and a solar oven is to expensive or to bulky for a bug out, then I have a simple small solution that’s easy to make and easy to carry.
