Mailbox in the Garden

An old mailbox in the garden keeps items close at hand, dry, and ready for use.

Great idea!
Can't tell from the photo, but it would be a good idea to keep the door on the garden mailbox in the closed position as critters would find it inviting. While I find it cute to lay my hand on a small green tree frog, I wouldn't want to disturb a wasp nest.
I keep a pair of garden gloves, my oldest pruning snips, an even older knife, some twine and a short claw type cultivator in my garden mail box.

We did this several years ago when we replaced our front mailbox with a new one. Put the old one on a red wood post in the back and keep tools in it as well. Thumbs up
