Small scale gardening (with trash)

IMG_0428
Last year we replaced 8 tires.  
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, right?
I saved two of the worn out tires and had Brian hang them on the shed.   It made me feel a little better…like I got a good deal on the purchase. 
Brian…what a guy….he can make my weirdest ideas a reality.

This year,  I wanted to make our outdoor spaces a little more interesting.   A bit eclectic with “furniture” like stuff.  (Since I’m so bad at gardening!)

$10 red wagon from Thrift Store
$20 cream planter (50% off) from Joann’s for my tomato's
$2 metal thing with 3 shelves  from an estate sale
$2 yellow chair from a garage sale 8 years ago.
$0 wood ladder from the old playhouse
(hmmm.  that $20 planter seems pricey, compared to the other deals, huh?)

I was worried someone would try to climb up the ladder, so I rigged up old planters with twine to hang off the ladder.

I dug out a huge strip of clay soil, replaced the dirt with some worm compost and some topsoil.  Now shade loving hostas line the walkway, and I really hope they don’t die.   (like everything else I’ve planted there)
