I have been dreaming of getting some recycled apple crates to use as garden beds for quite a while. I love the way they look, and they are a good height and size to access. I even contemplated shipping some up from Melbourne through The Little Veggie Patch Co. which does sound slightly nuts I’ll agree, especially as you have to buy them as a kit with the compost, pea straw etc.. included, things I can buy cheaply by the trailer load just up the road.
Last week I happened upon another Sydney blogger, Flowerpress, who had some in her garden. I emailed her and she gave me the details of the farmer she had bought them from.
So for a very small price, we now have 2 apple crates ready to fill. I plan on putting them right at the back door, partly for convenience, but also because I love the way they look.
