Repurposing in the garden

Since the inside of our crockpot broke, I now have the outside part in the backyard as a planter.  It's got some little flowers in it and they are doing well.  It's an old crockpot, so it already had a small hole in the bottom center. 

I also tried to convert an old bar-b-quer into a planter this past summer, but since it was soo hot, I think the metal from the pit killed the plantling.  I might try again this fall with a different plant.  We shall see.

I've seen pictures of old boots with plants in them--thought they were cute.  Have you repurposed anything in your garden?

Coke bottles we repurposed as plant holders.

We repurposed our old charcoal grill in to a meat smoker when we got a new grill. Well more like my hubby did but yea...it smokes meat really well!

Nope, but there's a house on the other side of town that has a flower "bed". They partially buried a bras headboard and foot board, and grow a bunch of flowers in it. Super cute!

I've seen a flower "bed" like that at the farm just north of here.  It's very cute!

We have a brick we have on the side of the house.  I saw a picture of a brick that was used as a planter.  I might have to try that.

Yep, I'm not sure how he did it but he's handy like that
