File Under: Re-Purposed


Sure, it needs more soil and may very well raise a few eyebrows among HOA officers, but I'm pretty excited about this recycled/re-purposed container garden. The former cooler has a built-in drain, can be moved in and out of shade depending on what's planted, easily rolls to and from a water source, and is currently home to some tomato and pepper plants.

Very Cool! DW and I love this!

Thanks! Hi DW! It was fun to put together. Inspired by my UMCP girls and all their container gardening adventures :-)

Tough to improve on a drink box's original purpose. Beer and soft drinks swimming in icy water are the coldest! Even colder if the country store has a rolled tin ceiling and a wooden floor.

The good news is: It can go right back to being a cooler once I harvest the garlic and free up a littls space for these plants next month :-)
