Clever Gardening Technique

Wheelbarrow Garden
For a unique container vegetable garden, use an old wheelbarrow. Make sure and drill a few drainage holes in the bottom. Fill it with potting soil and plant either cool-season (broccoli, lettuce, arugula, kale, etc.) or warm-season (patio tomatoes, peppers, bush squash, etc.) vegetables. You can easily roll it into the garage on a freezing night or into a brighter sunny location as needed. Think of it as a garden to go!
