We have a tiny backyard. What's a gardener to do?
Get creative, I say!
I'll take space where I can get it.
I found these tins at the dollar store. I wasn't too fond of the colorful little scene, though:
I painted over it with some plain ol' black.
I used a hammer and nail to punch three drainage holes in the bottom of each. Don't plant in anything that can't drain!
Then I nailed three to the post on the patio and hung one with a little piece of twine that I apparently saved at some point. Now my little tins are ready for all sorts of fun things, like these little sprigs of Creeping Jenny that I rooted in the house...
I think this would be a good herb garden, don't you?
Here's to spring!
