Here is a great way to re-purpose that old wobbly step ladder that no longer is safe to use.

I saw the idea of a ladder planter, I was wondering what I was gonna do with this old ladder, I used it as a trellis for my cucumbers in the spring. This is what I made of it today. A few tweaks here and there it's not much to brag about, but I like it. This winter I can convert it into a mini greenhouse to start seeds for next spring.

I was just sitting here enjoying the company, plants have a lot to say if you just take the time to listen.

I love what you did Sheri. Very creative and very useful. I can see that would also work for indoor use.

Yes, I can. I cut it down about 1 1/2 feet, for that reason as well. Thanks for your Idea. Hurray! Thank You! Thumbs up
