I picked my first home grown cucumber today which is the inspiration for this post. Many people feel that lack of space/yard prohibits the ability to garden, so my focus today is on ways you can have a little gardeny goodness with little to no space OR money. I am sure that everyone has seen those As Seen On TV Topsy Turvy things, they sell them everywhere these days. Great concept but poor execution in my opinion. Why not try this instead, as it’s more cost effective and you have the ability to create something useful and attractive out of potential garbage.
So much cuter than the ugly plastic alternative! You can find the step by step instructions at Design*Sponge one of my favorite DIY/crafty blogs.
Last I wanted to feature the craftiness of a friend of mine who has been recycling all sorts of glass jars, jewelery, driftwood, etc. into adorable little rooters/hanging bud vases.
So none of these things involves spending much if any money, nor do they require much space. I am planning on testing out the diy topsy turvy here in the next week or two so expect pictures to follow.
