Wheelbarrow slated for trash, now an instant garden.

Wheelbarrow slated for trash, now an instant garden.


Not much of an idea, as it's been done many times before. But, thought it nice to share, especially this time of year. This wheelbarrow was slated for the trash... yes, me, thinking of trashing something... ummm. Can't believe I'm writing this statement. Anyhow, the squash was something Mother Nature had given from our mulch pit. Some months ago, we started to fill the barrow with mulch dirt and cow manure, (cows live next door), for use with our potted plants. And then there was these squash plants growing. Since the barrow had a crack, and the wood handles are weak, we thought it nice to leave them growing, and add a couple tomato plants with pine needles for weed control. And if we had too, we can roll the barrow out of harm if Mom Nature decides to get vicious. Which here in Florida, she does a lot.

Now all we need are the bees, which we do have thousands of honey bees and yellow jackets. Though thousands of wild flowers in our yard and other budding plants, the beez may not see those BIG YELLA' Blossoms.....

There ya have it, instant garden, with ease of control.

Have a Wonderful Spring Ya'll
