your best (and worst!) cheap, thrify, and diy garden tips?
Hello there friendly fellow gardenwebbers!
I am starting my first vegetable garden, inspired by memories of tending one with my mother as a child, as well as a desire for a more healthy diet. I am constrained to a minimal budget, and I would really love to hear everyone's best tips for how they saved money using unexpected, non-traditional garden items, oddball tips, or did things themselves! (ie - more than just things like "start from seed instead of buying plants". That's pretty much common sense, I think?)
Or even, what you thought was a great idea that turned out to be not so much a great idea at all!
I'm hoping to hear lots of great stories :-)
