Bin recycled

As a gardener in between gardens, I didn’t want to buy a ton of pots when we only need them for a brief period of time while we prepare some new beds…still, how to contain my beloved herbs while they are waiting for their new home?

Happily, I realized that our bins for recycling plastic, glass, tin, etc., are a wonderful size for housing good-sized plants and even come complete with drainage holes. So our recycling is temporarily being sorted into cardboard boxes, and the bins are now planters… soon to be recycled once again into recycle bins….
