Salad Cart Experiment

This week I decided to transform my metal garden cart I got from a garage sale for $1, into a salad cart! I took a burlap sack I had gotten for free from a garage sale, and lined the base.

I filled it with dirt and took arugula and hot mustard seeds I got from my local Marin Open Garden exchange (we meet at the local park on Saturday mornings with bounty from our gardens and exchange fruits, veggies, flowers & seeds).

Since my garden has lots of shade at this point in the season, I can roll the cart into the sun especially while the seeds are sprouting.  There are also lots of snails in the garden and so I can re-direct them away from the salad cart!  Will keep you posted!

Burlap sack planters

A couple of weekends ago, I stopped by a garage sale in my neighborhood. They were giving away a stack of unused burlap coffee bean sacks.  I took a few, not sure how I might use them.  I filled them with dirt and planted tomatoes, peppers and herbs.   So far, so good….
