Accessory Storage

Post  AtlantaMarie on 4/12/2016, 9:45 am

I know a lot of folk here use various things in their gardens like milk jugs, soda bottles, netting, etc.

How do you store it when not in use?

I tend to use things that stack or nestle...then store in a little garden shack out back...or in the basement.

Mine is all over my desk in the laundry room.  Luckily it's a pretty big laundry room, but my husband recently told me he is sick of looking at my stuff all over the place.   We are going to clean out a nook in the garage and he is going to "give" me that space for all my plant stuff.  I'm pretty excited about it, because moving all that stuff out there will free up a lot of space inside!

My mother has fits about my 'mess' when she comes to stay for the summer.  And she's been known to throw away my stuff.  Like my 'manly' drill & bits disappeared last year.
Shocked  Now all I have is my girly-girl drill and no bits.

I try to stack everything up neatly before she comes but there IS a lot.  It's crazy.  After 4 full years of gardening I'm realizing that I don't need so much and will probably start getting rid of it.

Outdoors is a mess, but indoor storage is a little more civilized. My one cabinet in the garage:

In the computer room.  Normally it's filled but not everything has been put back in after having the room painted:

Shelves in the garage, shelves in the basement, shelves on the back porch, shelves on the front portch, shelves in the family room.  I am currently reorganizing things and putting a lot of tall shelves in the basement storage area and hope to fit everything down there - all in one place.  Except a shelf in the garage where I will keep things I use all the time (fertilizers, gloves, trellis ties, string, gardening shoes etc).  I leave all of my larger tools (that SFGer's aren't supposed to need) such as pitchforks, hoe, shovel etc propped up against the compost bin.  I have to replace the handles every few years but I don't have to lug them into and out of the garage every time I need something.  Oh yea, the tall things like EMT poles, pvc hoops etc I put out along the edge of the woods and cover with camouflage tarps so they are not unsightly.

Ugh, storage of garden stuff.  Ugh.   Seed trays that don't fit in any cabinet.  Odd shaped things like pot makers, soil block makers.  Seed starter mix. jugs that seem too tall to fit in a cabinet.  Coils of drip line soaker hose.  Drip line emitters, sprinkler heads, PVC.  Small stuff crammed in a collection of Stack On Organizers.  But so much doesn't fit.

Argh, stacks everywhere. 

The best stuff is the tools.  Hanging on pegs in the peg board or in the long handled tool rack.

Everything else is a mess.

Okay, so I'm not the only frustrated one here then....

I love the idea of using soda bottles & milk jugs as cloches, but just don't have space....
