DIY – Hanging Basket Support

In addition to the raised garden beds I decided to grow some vegetables in containers and flower baskets that I got for free at the garden center. I am not sure if the baskets will work for vegetables, but the only way to find out is to give it a try. So, I made a hanging basket support using recycled material in five easy steps. I gathered the material from the lumber scrap pile, otherwise it would have cost about $30 to build. The cement blocks do not match, so I will be on the lookout for a matching block. The center basket has cucumbers, the one on the left has tomatoes and the last one has hot peppers.

Six on Saturday – June 9, 2018

There is not much plant life in the garden yet, but warblers and sparrows are a common sight in the backyard. They are hanging out around the garden, building nests and waiting to steal some seeds. These tiny birds arrive in spring and leave in the fall. They are smart enough to enjoy Canadian summers and escape our winters.
