Spring is here and then it’s not. Then it is here again, and not. Sun and fog and fog and sun. Well, despite the weather I’m (pineapple-chan) determined to have a container garden. Crossing my fingers for yummy salads during the growing season.
Living next to wine country, it’s been very easy to find boxes. The wine box planters I got from a couple in Rohnert Park and from scouring Costco’s wine aisles (with cupcake boy’s help). The idea itself is from Amy Fowler’s, “Garden Anywhere”. I treated the boxes with Danish Oil (for weather proofing), drilled holes in the bottom (for drainage), and lined inside with plastic. Currently I’ve got Mizuna, Mustards, Sugar Anne’s, Strawberries, Lemon Thyme, Silver Thyme, Stevia and more flourishing in the planters.
The other plants will get a photo shoot when the sun reappears again. Go photosynthesis!
I’m thinking I want to make a bunch of these & hand them out for Earth Day. :)
Wall planter…great use of the length of the bottles.
