you're growing that in what?!
I'd been looking around the web, and seen some great ideas for growing strawberries in gutters, that I was dying to try out.
So we attached the old gutter to the side of the garden, filled it up with soil and you know what? I think that was our most successful strawberry bed last year. The slugs never seemed to find the strawberries up there. I love that the guttering cost us nothing to put into our garden except a little elbow grease and time. And it got me thinking about all the recycled things you can grow in. I've seen people growing in old water tanks, and tyres, all kinds of things really. It never fails to make me smile.
Then last year Rhonda over at Down to Earth linked to this story about a couple growing in all kinds of crazy recycled materials and well really that story just made my day.
I'm sure some of you are growing in some fantastic recycled materials. I'd so love to know what you've got going on in your gardens. What kinds of recycled things are you growing in? Even better, will you take a picture and show it to me? Make sure you leave a link in the comments so we can all go and admire your genius!
