I love my flower garden. We moved into our house almost a year ago and I am loving having a garden of my own. It has been really fun planting seeds and transplanting, and transplanting again all of our flowers. I also planted some sweet peas this year.
I have come to learn that you can use simple household items for a great garden. Here are some of my favorites. (Pictures to come.)
Using yarn and paint sticks you can create a tomato support.
Using yarn and a railing you can make a trellis for vine plants.
Using scrap wood or plastic totes you can create a raised planter box.
OK, I know there are more, but my brain is dead. Just look around and see what you can find. It may be something really useful to your garden.
What random things have you used in your garden?
