I found these small plastic crates at the store Five Below for just $2 a piece.
They connect together with a small peg and hole and a snap on the sides.
To hang, I simply drilled a hole in the bottom of each crate, used an anchor and screw to attach to the wall and Viola!
The hardest part was getting the stickers off the back. ;)
For those that have expressed concern about the height of the crates, my house is a cape and the upstairs ceilings are low. Two walls are slanted, so wall space is limited, I had to be creative. My daughter is almost 8 and is tall, so with the help of a small step stool, she can reach her toys. If your child is smaller, I would recommend hanging these crates lower.
this year i wanted to start a lil garden with some tomatoes and peppers along with a few hanging plants...
so looking out my window this spring i saw an old swingset frame and a bookcase that had seen better days...and thought hummm..wonder what i can do with those...
Thus became my lil raised bed garden (the bookcase) with hanging plants overhead on the swing frame. I even used some of the rubber mats that my grandson didn't use anymore to kneel on along with a few tiles left
over from a home build that I got from a friend.
Have harvested a few Tommy Toe tomatoes so far..peppers are coming along with even a coupla melon vines...and my flowers are doing well even in this drought (put sponges in the bottom of the planter)...I totally enjoy....next yr going to maybe add some green bean vines and who knows what else....
1 quart jar, 1/2 parts vinegar and water, 1/2 tsp. pink sea salt, jalapeno's (red & green).
cayenne's, (hybrid hot)yellow pepper's, onion's, cabbage, 2lime slices for looks, & ...» we grew all the peppers. The others are peppers only, 1part vinager, 1 part water, salt to taste and add peppers. homegrown peppers have heat and flavor<3
the one in a jar has cabbage and its an excelent condement :) the ones in oil & vinager jars are vinager & water and salt (to taste)
