My First and Favorite Junk Garden Purchase

Stone Birdhouses on Jun 8, 2016

About 15 years ago I purchased my first and favorite junk garden collectible, my wheelbarrow. I paid $15 for it at a garage sale. I filled it with two vintage galvanized laundry tubs, and planted them with annuals. I protect it's chippy condition with a coat of clear Thompson's water seal every other year.

    thanks for the info. Some of the old wood looks great but they do start to break down once they get wet and snow. I am going to try the thompsons on some things I am trying to do before they get put away for the winter.
