These little Orange Breasted Sun-birds wait eagerly every morning for me to fill up the bottle with a very sweet sugar solution, colored with a little red food coloring.
Such a beautiful sight in any garden!
To make the water feeder you will need :
an empty 750 ml bottle (preferably not round),wire coat hanger, a twig for a perch, epoxy and a copper elbow.
Growing your own Sweet Potatoes is really easy.
Cut a cube of your sweet potato about 5 cm x 5 cm.
Fill a large container with potting soil and mix in worm compost. (Placing stone ship in the bottom to ensure drainage.)
Plant your sweet potato piece in the center about 5 cm in-depth.
Water well until water runs out of the pot, making sure all the soil is thoroughly wet. Do this every day. In a short period of time you will see vine growth.
After about 3 months, start feeling around in the soil for new potatoes and harvest as required.
This Sweet Potato has been in the same pot now for 3 years and has provided a great deal of Sweet potatoes.
It also becomes quite a talking point, when I show my guests a new potato pulled from the ground.

This is what is commonly referred to as a keyhole garden, an old world small-scale farming system invented in Africa. Build a circular structure to support the garden and bring it up to waist height to keep yourself comfortable and create easy accessibility. Place a reasonably wide wire tube for compost and a semi sealed “keyhole” entry to allow you to slide in for tending. The compost pile is where you concentrate the watering, which helps break down the organic goodies and disperse them throughout the garden for the plants. Fill in the bottom with wood and other materials at the bottom, pile on some nice soil on top and you’re all set to go!
I came across this yesterday, and I think it is a brilliant idea to incorporate a worm farm into your vegetable garden. I can going to try this as soon as possible.
One could also set one up in a far corner of your garden for your pet feces.
