Any ideas for repurposing a stainless steel kitchen sink?

by Susan
Yes, the old joke about "everything but the kitchen sink" probably has a place here...
It's a double sink. I enjoy gardening and think it may have a use outdoors.

    We took an old double cast iron sink from a friends old farm house and I built a stand for it and plumbed it for water useing an old hose from a washing machine along with a tap from salvage and some short pieces of pipe. We ran a hose from our Iowa hydrant to it and hooked it up to the washing machine hose. I ran PVC pipe from the sink drain to the garden. We use it to wash and prep veggies (deleafing, cutting off roots ETC.) and the water from rincing them goes back into the garden. The leaves and roots and such go to the compost pile.

    Any ideas about how to keep squirrels from taking over birdhouses. I am getting ready to repair the holes that were 1 3/4" that are now about 5 to 6" wide.

    I saw a video online which showed a bird house on a pole. The home owner had attached a Slinky to the pole. When a squirrel attempted to climb, the Slinky took him to the ground. I haven't tried this yet but it looks like it will work.

    if the sink is in really bad condition -use it as a planter, if in the banged up still holds water condition, attach it to a 4x4 base and use in laundry room to pre soak stained items.,
