Shoveling clay soil is tiresome since clay is hard, and it can also stick to your shovel for twice the difficulty. To make digging clay soil easier, try applying a light coating of wax, either car wax or floor wax, and then buff off and commence digging. The clay will no longer stick to the shovel, and this also helps to prevent other problems like rusting.
Climbing plants and vines are great for covering fences and wall structures. Climbing foliage is a great way to disguise unsightly features on your property, sometimes in the span of just one season. Climbers can also be trained to grow and cover an arbor, and they will grow through or around existing trees and shrubs. Some varieties of these plants will have to be tethered to some sort of support, but other varieties will be able to attach to the medium they are climbing. Some of these plants include, wisteria, jasmine, climbing roses, clematis, honeysuckle!
As fall arrives, it is the time to prepare for planting fall edibles. A pumpkin can be used as a planting container instead of clay pots. Slice a hole around the stem, and pull the pumpkin top out.

They will also be healthier and hardier, allowing them to better resist pests and disease. Transplant them outside when they are fully established and able to thrive.
