This was my grandpa’s work bench.
It was an old butcher table that he used for years and years. I know it’s at least 60 years old if not more. Even though he died when I was around 10 years old, it stayed with everything else in my gram’s house till she passed at age 98 just a few years ago. We finally brought it home,and even though I didn’t need a work bench, I do need a potting table.
It has great rustic wood. A friend of ours is going to cover the top with metal for us, then I won’t worry about the dirt or weather, and it will be easy to clean.
I have all of my aunt’s old pickle jars on the bottom; she used to use them as cloches in early spring.
I bought this vintage bottle carrier at the flea last summer. I didn’t really have an indoor use for it, but it’s perfect to hold my seedlings and ready-to-plants.
I love just a bit of moss in a pot of texture. Luckily our patio grows plenty of free moss.
It’s still a few weeks until our last frost date, so I am chomping at the bit to get things in.
I can’t wait to put this basil in from the farmers market. I just couldn’t resist it even though I have to bring it and my seedlings in every night. It just smelled so good! I am jealous of all of you who already have garden season at full speed!
