Garden junk

oldlady59(5)December 12, 2013

Thought I'd show my garden junk that I revamped to something useful. Mostly in the summer time I haul vegetables harvest from the garden to the house in my cart. The one side and bottom are refrigerator shelves just wired on. The sides are from a panel that came off of a air conditioner. There is so many other items that I've made useful from junk people has thrown away. right now I don't know how to post more than one pic. So later gater, maybe a different posting.

Well now oldlady59, that looks like one handy little cart!
I pick up those refrigerator shelves anytime I see them at the dump. They can be used for so many things, and they're strong. I like them as shelves for plants because they let the water drain through. I totally agree about so many useful things being thrown away.
Had to laugh when I saw your wood, that's what I'm doing up on the pc so early this a.m., putting another log on the fire. tfs, Donna

Sure beats caring in arm loads of wood & dropping pieces & getting bruises on legs & feet. Looks like it holds a lot so really useful as 1 cartful looks like a pretty big load of wood. TFS Jan

Just thought of a good one. With my plants there can be lots of pots that I got to move at one time so I'm thinking what can I use for a huge tray with sides and that when I set it down in a tub of water all potted plants can get watered at one time. WaLa. a tray taken from a old dishwasher. When bolt cutters are used to take out all upright inside pegs it works great. Also it helps to take a hand held grinder and grind off sharp edges.

Hey, that's a nice cart you made there. Hats off for the idea. I will never be able to come up with something like this. Every time I see my rented dumpster from Junk It Dumpster Rental on the brink of being full, I just take out some items from it and keep it in my garage thinking I'll recycle it to something else. But till now nothing worthy have come out of it. This is an inspiration.

I want to thank all of you for your complements. All it takes is thinking of what you need and what it will take to make it happen. Thinking outside of the box.

What a great idea. Makes getting the wood into the house much easier and I imagine it works great for moving things around in the garden.
