$2 Garden Gathering Basket

Gather your garden goodies and wash them with this easy Dollar Store hack!
There are many pricey gathering baskets out there to make bringing in your garden goodies easier. Luckily using two laundry baskets from the Dollar Tree gives you the same convenience at a fraction of the cost. Purchase two basket from your local dollar store. One should have open sides and be slightly smaller. The other should be enclosed (and handles) are a big bonus.
Simply place the smaller basket into the larger. Then use the handles on the larger basket to carry them from row to row (or box to box) and fill with your ripe produce. Since it's easy to set on the ground, you won't have to worry about dropping fruits or veggies. Simply set them inside and keep on harvesting.
Once your basket is full, or you've picked all you can, carry your basket to the water hose. Gently rinse off your day's pickings, so you aren't carrying extra soil and dirt into the house. Once the veggies are rinsed, lift out the inner basket and let the water drain off.
Your inner basket is clean and ready to take in the house. Use the water in the bottom basket to water any plants that need it. There's no wasted water, and no soil covered countertops!

    This great idea would be also be good when weeding. I always have dirt left on the weeds and a bit of a shake would seperate the rubbish from the dirt. It's then easy to throw the weeds in the trash and the dirt into the garden or compost bin.
