So, I am one of the cheapest people you know, and am always looking to do things cheaper, better, faster. This year we are renting a house in Seattle and I am fully admitting to you now our garden here is worse than ugly. It is depressing and bad and I can't take it anymore! Phew, just had to vent.
I am coming up with a bunch of different ideas to try and create a garden with a small budget, as it is a rental and you never want to invest too much in something so temporary-- but the best part is that you can take these with you when you leave. So, here is my first post on buget gardening.
I am going to buy 6 - 10 quart galvanized buckets to place on my front walkway, which are $6.39 each.
Then I am going to paint a stripe of color around the middle of the bucket with tintable colored chalkboard paint in these colors $9.95
I am planting them with a combination of herbs, lettuce, and nasturtiums for color!
Then I am going to use chalkboard pens and label the buckets! Can't wait to start this project and I will post pictures when I am done!
