To avoid tracking in sand or soil after a day at the beach or working in the garden, set up a rinsing station just outside your door or at another convenient location.

Here's a convenient way to transport flats of blooms you've purchased and recycle a shopping bag at the same time. Start with a large paper bag that has handles. Cut the bag along both long sides of a side panel. Repeat on other side. Fold cut panels in to create more support at the base of the carrier; trim excess paper. Store carrier in the trunk of your car to reuse as necessary.

Whether they're from the North or South, birds love Alabama's state fruit, blackberries. If they're enjoying yours before you get the chance, set up this low-tech line of defense: Drive bamboo stakes into the ground around the perimeter of the berry patch. Perch flowerpots on top, and cover with bird netting, which you can find at garden centers.
Use bamboo stakes that are taller than the berry bushes and you, so you can move around underneath the netting. Make sure the netting drapes all the way to the ground.
