I am not a gardener. I do have a very green thumb and can grow just about anything.... butttt I just don't have the gumption to change sand to soil and try to grow a garden. (For those of you who don't know I live on the beach. Not a warm one either. LOL) Anyway I started a few plants in pots to go in the front of my house, however the wind just about killed them. So they had to come to the side/back yard where there is a bit of protection.
I have been missing fresh herbs. I saw this idea in a magazine and then again on my home page news real.
Sooo what the heck am I talking about?? Here I will just show you.
See a garden in shoe space on the fence!
I took an old shoe caddy and cut off three of the pockets
I then added grommets on the back side of each pocket
Then I took old 99 cent acrylic paints and just had fun. Only paint the front and sides.
I then lined the sides of the pockets with some plastic, added a few rocks and
started to add already moisten potting soil.
I thought the plastic would help retain the water better. Canvas dries out so quickly.
Next I added wood screws/hooks to the support beam of my fence.
When the pockets were about 1/2 full of dirt I hung it to the fence,
finished adding dirt and the plants.
I have Rosemary, Oregano and Lavender
Here is my little corner of the garden world
I have some other gardening ideas for the fence, I need more herbs
and well the fence needs more than just one planter. LOL
Oh and yes that is a tomato plant in the 5 gallon bucket.
Let me know if you try this or have already tried this idea.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
