Clever Gardening Technique

Garden Storage Mailbox
An old (or new) mailbox makes a great garden storage center for a few hand tools and your garden records. Place one on a post at the entrance to the garden area. This is a convenient place to put the most used tools and planting records, along with some extra labels, twine -- well, you get the idea. It saves a lot of trips back to the shed or garage! Place papers or journals in a large ziplock bag to prevent the humidity from warping the pages.
