And here is another clever idea. Milk Crate Gardening! This would be space saving and if you could suspend the crate somehow or place it on the edge of a stone wall or something, you could grow vine plants right out the side! We purchased a half dozen “milk crate” from Wal-Mart last fall on clearance for $0.50 a piece. I may re-purpose a couple of them!

And, here’s a clever idea for watering your container gardens/ houseplants:
My garden is growing nicely. My Seeds of Change Green Arrow Peas have not done as well as hoped, but they are slowly growing, so hopefully all those seeds I planted won’t be a total waste. They took over three weeks to come up. I planted them around February 20. They are just now about six inches tall! No blooms yet. My herb garden is looking beautiful and my lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower are all doing really well. Oh, and my strawberry patch has strawberries!
I’ll be planting my tomato seedlings, cucumbers, squash plants, eggplants, and pumpkin seedlings soon. And I still need to get the front bed tilled up and get the bush beans planted.
I wish I had a current photo. Maybe I’ll be able to share some soon. Oh, and you can find a lot more creative gardening ideas on my Back to the Garden page on Pintrest!
Homemaking is so much more than cleaning a house, cooking food, and making sure your family has clothes to wear. Homemaking is about nurturing a spirit of warmth, comfort, and love in your home.
