Looking For Some Unique Garden Ideas?

Unique Garden Ideas

I was looking for an easy way to make a garden, one that I could easily take care of and weed. I had a few Unique Garden Ideas in mind. We had an old bathtub on the farm that hubs used as target practice.

We brought that over to our new place and set it up with some dirt we used for the crickets, which is really nice promix you can find at any nursery, combined with the bug poo. My first Bathtub Garden was AWESOME!

A Herb Garden would be really easy Container Garden to add instead of the vegetables like we had. But I really love how our Carrots turned out. See the picture at the bottom of my graphic. Two bathtubs full, and so easy to pull out of the dirt.

Raised Bed Garden Ideas

 

Unique Garden Ideas BathtubsOld Bathtubs make a perfect Raised Beds for your garden! They are so easy to take care of and the weeding is almost nothing once you get a handle on it in the very beginning. They aren’t too pretty to look at but we put some rocks we have on the farm around the bottom edge and they look much better now.

I just love how easy they are to take care of. I’m just not that good at gardening and planting in a bathtub makes it super easy for me. And the little sink we added just for fun and one momma lizard kept getting in that one and laying her eggs. Lol! Guess I’m not the only one that loved my bathroom garden!

We also took our old horse water tank and filled it with early pea’s one year. They were sooo good!! And look how cute they looked. After this crop we pulled them out and added flowers for the rest of the season. If you liked this and would like to learn more about Herb Gardening. I have a 10 day Free ecourse that is super fun!

    I would like to use our old tub as a raised garden. I want to build a box around it and put it on wheels so that I can move it when I want. Do you do anything special for drainage, etc? In side the tub, did you plug it and just fill it with dirt; or, did you allow it to drain? Did you fill it rock at the bottom or layer it in anyway?

      What we did was each year we dump out the old dirt and put in new. But first we added big rock from our driveway and we just left the plug open with rocks inside of the whole so it can drain. Then we added the new dirt on top of the rocks. But this year one of the rocks must have got stuck because when we had a heavy rain the whole tub filled up with dirt soup. Bummer! So we just transplanted those out into a different tub. I love growing carrots in these tubs and I think a early crop of peas would be great then lettuce and then carrots. This year we put a pumpkin in one of them and pinched off all the other pumpkins so there were only 3 vines. This works better. But we do have to water it almost every day. Good Luck with your bathtub garden!
