I have got wooden windows at home and I have problems of condensation. I leave my windows open to allow air circulation and prevent mold formation. I even take off my interior screens to avoid moisture retention but still I can find my windows condensing. Is it time to get my windows replaced or is there any alternative DIY remedy? My friend suggested me to run a dehumidifier. Suggestions invited...

Hello… I have got a farm house in my backyard which was used a horse stable earlier. I’m thinking of getting it remodeled into an outdoor kitchen probably before next summer. I want to maintain the farmhouse style, have refrigerated drawers, portable grills and built-in cabinets. While browsing for kitchen remodeling, I read several blogs that articulated many ideas and concepts. I'm not sure how far this would work. I request your valuable ideas and suggestions on how to improvise and customize the outdoor kitchen while maintaining the farmhouse style.

Has anybody started an organic garden in their home? How can I make the most of a small plot of ground to grow vegetables?

I'm wanting to grow vegetables at home but don't know where to start. What should I buy in this season, how much space do I need? Sun, shade? Is there any group I can join on the Internet? Tks.

Looking for shrubs to cover the front fence of my house. Any suggestions? I want it to be thick and to grow quickly so I don't have to put any canvas or metal cover.

I read the other day the fruit of the paraiso tree you find these days on the ground is highly toxic for humans and all mammals. Shouldn't there be warning messages around, thinking especially of young kids?

Wouldn't it be good to have garden contests, in different categories, from the most simple to the most elaborate, to stimulate garden care? Here's an idea I give out for free!

I'm needing a gardener to come every week to look after a rather large garden (half an acre) in San Isidro. If he can manage the swimming pool too all the better. I will need references.
