Spring is fully here in Del Norte County. Even if the weather isn't exactly agreeing with that right now, it's still time to be thinking about gardening and getting yourself ready for the season so once this rain stops, you'll be ready to go. Not everybody is lucky enough to have a garden plot at home, sometimes because they lack the resources to build nice raised beds, or they don't have the space and soil conditions to plant directly in the ground. However, there are a lot of different clever ways to give yourself gardening space at home, it's just a matter of getting creative and thinking outside the box (or raised bed).
Lately I've been looking at different ways people re-use old materials to create gardens for themselves and I've found quite a few good ideas. If you're looking to garden this year and just aren't sure if you have the space and resources, check these out and think about giving them a try at home, or maybe they'll inspire you to come up with your own creative ways to make a garden.
And finally, here is a link to my friend's pinterest board. She has collected (pinned??) a huge amount of clever garden ideas that utilize recycled materials; everything from old bathtubs to old tires.
