Grow a Salad in a Table Box


This is great for urban gardening, and for those who have limited mobility. Items can be stored underneath, so it's a great space saver as well. I think the rabbits would have a bit of trouble getting into this garden!

Read more here. Alternatively(and easier), you could just nail or place the box to an old shabby table.

You could put your garbage can potatoes right next to it, and a pretty Colonial bird bottle for natural insect control on a deck post. A compost bin could be stored underneath the table. Then you could hook up a garbage can rain barrel to the down spout. If your back door is near the kitchen, this makes gardening very user friendly.

That is so great! This is our first year with rabbits in the neighborhood (and so, our first year with coyotes too) this looks like a good idea for our lettuce :)

Thanks, every once in a while all the synapses fire and I pull something good together. ;)

Thank you for sharing this. We have had a huge problem with our dogs digging up our garden so the seedlings don't have a chance to get a firm grip in the ground...This will be a big help for us...
