You can tell I am getting a bit of spring fever because I've been thinking about my container gardens.
I am not usually a fan of planted wheelbarrows, but I now find myself the owner of a dysfunctional wheelbarrow.
I think I may try to plant it this summer. Seeking inspiration, I did an image search for wheelbarrow plantings. I like these, especially the white one with the celosia planted all around it. I bet it was a sight to behold once that garden filled in!
While searching I discovered what I don't like about most wheelbarrow plantings--the ugly rubber wheel and they are not planted full enough. I am thinking if I put a spiller plant above the ugly wheel, it will be covered in no time. I really wish I had one of those metal wheels, like the last photo. If I remove the rubber, will there be metal spokes under it? Don't laugh, I know nothing about wheelbarrow construction.
I saw a few wheelbarrows planted with salad fixings--how neat would that be--a wheelbarrow full of dinner salad! Some gourmet lettuce mix, radishes, green onions, etc. It could be wheeled around to catch the sun.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
