Do you guys remember my original White Trash Garden? When we first moved into our apartment, we thought we’d only be here for one year. MAX. I was dreaming of giant raised bed vegetable gardens, but decided to make do with the materials (garbage) and space (a paved carport) we had on hand during our one short year in the ghetto.
Fast forward four years and….we’re still here. My garden remains a little trashy – but it’s somewhat evolved. Just like me. I still drink wine out of the box, but now I totally use a glass. My garden is still most comfortable with a Rainier beer in its hand, but it’s now contained in an old garden cart and can be moved into the sun during the day.
Behold the evolution!
The floor of the garden cart is grated (like the sides). I covered the bottom and sides with weed fabric, and attached it with zip ties. There are about 3-4 inches of small rock in the bottom of the cart to help with drainage and the rest is filled with potting soil.
