And now for something completely different…

I’ve been doing it myself a lot lately, and one of the things I’ve been working on is setting up a hydroponic/hanging garden. It’s been hit or miss but I haven’t given up so here are a few pictures of my found/recycled pot garden:

First I realized I didn’t really have any kind of liner for the pots and with the car all fubar getting some wasn’t an option. So I got some old sheets I was going to use for something else and cut them up

Then I covered one of my hanging baskets with the shredded sheets:

Next I transferred one of the plants that needed more room into the bigger pot and hung it:

The base is an old laundry basket I’ve been growing an apple tree in, the next pot is the old metal pot and it’s filled with asters, the next is, I thinka chrysanthum plant, my mom brought it over from church so who the heck knows, but it’s growing and I used an old fabric softener bottle as the pot.

I’ll keep taking pictures as I add things and to chart the growth and let you know how it goes!
