Clever Gardening Technique

Garbage Can Tops
Tops of garbage cans, especially plastic ones with no handles, make easy-to-scoot-around receptacles for weeds or harvested fruits and vegetables. Unlike larger and heavier bucket-shaped containers, these won't mar delicate plants as you work along ground covers. Their broad, shallow surface makes them perfect for harvesting delicate vegetables and fruits that are best kept in a single layer.
