radiator box turned into a sq. ft garden box

Post  Patty from Yorktown on 3/1/2012, 3:13 pm

I am so excited. A few days ago I drove by the place that fixed my car ac unit and also does radiator repair, and saw a lovely wooden box. I stopped and asked if they were going to throw it out. You guessed correctly, I got a free wooden radiator box and I did not even have to load it in my car! It is about 3'-6"x 3'-0". It is deeper than I need but came with a bottom. Now all I have to do is find a place to put it, paint it some loud color and plant it. I can hardly wait. I think it might get something that tastes good to moles and voles or a bunch of flowers.

Great find, Patti. I want to see what great colors you decide to use.

Don't forget the drainage holes for the bottom. Actually, I am sure you would remember, but thought it was an important reminder for newbies.
