~Wheel Burrow Garden~

Im always on the look out for junk piles on the side of the road. You never know what you may find to use as a Garden container. Ive turned this wheel burrow with a missing wheel into a garden for Morning Glorys. Morning Glorys can be pretty invasive. Hopefully they will stay contained. Remeber when using differnt items make sure you drill holes in the bottom for drainage.
This is how it looked when I first sowed the seeds!

This a bout 5 weeks later! Starting to really take off and fill up the container.
A couple months later and it looks very pretty. You could add something like this to any area of your yard that needs a cute facelift. You can even turn it into an herb garden or a themed garden. I have another empty wheel burrow. I have just sown seeds of differnt lettuces. Once the Morning Glorys are finished, I will start some Kale and Swiss Chard.
Happy Recycling!

  1. I've been on a kick this year about using twigs and sticks so this post really appeals to me.

    What makes it extra cool is the wheel barrow.

    Nice job.
