Recycle with style

Had a lot of "junk" around the farm but it was all too good to throw away. A few years ago I bought this big cast iron tub at an auction thinking it would look good with flowers planted in it. It sat in the barn yard for a few years until Garry came up with a plan. The tub is filled and we have three gold fish living in it. Yes I should mow down that tall grass but to the right of it is the rock garden I have been taking apart and moving the plants to another area and behind the tub is our new "lasagna" garden which I hope will keep a lot of my perennials from winter killing. Once all the plants have been moved we will spread the dirt around and get grass growing again.



  1. I love the tall grass. You might have to cool off with the fish when it gets hotter!

  2. What a lovely idea to do with all the "stuff" you have around on the farm. You've inspired me! :)

  3. Thank you, it's fun to make use of discarded "stuff" and it makes the yard look funky, I think.
