Dream State: Grow Your Own Ginger At Home - start it indoors early in the season, as a houseplant. Then move outdoors into your garden in the spring. Every "finger" of the old root will produce a new ginger root.
DIY - Weed killer - When nasty weeds pop up, don't reach for the weed killer. Douse them with vinegar, lemon juice or boiling water instead. The weeds will likely shrivel in a day or so. Resilient ones rarely withstand a second treatment.
Boiling potatoes- Household plants need nourishment, particularly in the dead of winter when sunlight is limited. Plants love starch, save the water you boiled your potatoes in, let it cool and use it to water your household plants.
