Country Living ideas for Small Spaces

If you live in an apartment, why not -
grow vegetables in containers, and go container gardening?

We also have advice on: Country living also means animals in your garden. Sometimes, they are welcomed, and other times just a nuisance. Feed the wild birds and encourage backyard birds as they will eat your garden pests. We also have some bird house plans for your backyard birds.

For those nuisance rats, make a homemade humane rat trap - no blood, no tears.
