Tuesday Re-Use-Day - 8

On each Tuesday for the next few weeks I am be featuring photos of things that are re-used around Scarecrow's Garden.

Remember to click on any of the photos to enlarge them! smile

* The Re-used items are written in bold!

In the Garden

Doc made me a couple of items, out of old conduit pipe,
when I was ill a few years ago and bending was difficult.
More info on this seed planter and tap-turner
can be found on his blog here!

Just after we arrived here
Doc built me this handy little trolley out of an old milk crate,
a couple wheels off an old pram and a piece of metal
he got from a recycling centre.
It's so handy for moving pots and boxes of plants
around the garden at planting time.

More old milk crates this time plastic come in handy
for plant covers against birds and chooks!
Also, here, as stands for my watering containers.

Old T-shirts and scraps of stretch fabric
are cut up and make great plant ties.
They have just enough stretch in them
so they don't damage growing plants.

Isn't it annoying when the handle breaks
on your favourite hand tool.
It still has plenty of life left in it...
...so Doc puts new handles on mine.
He makes these out of old broom handles.
Sometimes longer ones than the originals
for easier reaching in the garden beds.

These old sleepers were around the garden when we moved in,
being very old they make great edging in the veg garden.
Sometimes sleepers are treated with chemicals
so watch where you put them.
This bed is one of the new wicker water beds
and so is lined with plastic.
