Last year I made my first forays into gardening with mixed results! I have to admit I had more fun making the the little gardening area look pretty by using old crates to grow my veggies than the actual gardening itself. I like the idea of repurposing old household items to grow new life. I think a bookcase on its back could work well, but I guess its not going to look as pretty as this idea. Have you used any unusual vessels to house your veggies or flowers?
