Want to explore home gardens and grab ideas? I’ve got tours, galleries, tips, and ideas for getting creative, crafty, and organized in both your home and garden. I garden organically and we live debt-free so everything is frugal and usually repurposed or recycled.

I collect ideas wherever I go and attend a lot of garden tours where real-life gardeners like you and me do wonderful things on modest budgets. You can see many of these gardens in the Idea Galleries by Topic section.
