STOCK TANK RAISED BED GARDEN PLANTER FILLED WITH BRIGHT YELLOW SUNFLOWERS!
You do know all the rage right now and has been for several years is to plant raised bed gardens. They’re easier on your back, easier to weed, take up less space, and don’t require any heavy machinery to cultivate the plot. Another trend is planting in stock tanks.
In my neck of the woods these items are free. Every farmer has several laying around in their junk pile or stockpiles somewhere in a field. Once they get rusty, spring a leak, and no longer hold water they’re pretty useless to water cattle out of.
But that’s a good thing for those of us, like me, who tend to garden with rustic junk. My besties son brought me over this small stock tank knowing I’d find a use for it and I certainly have. I had hubby fill it with dirt from our stockpile and I thought blooming sunflowers would be just beautiful against the dark brown chicken coop.
Since sunflowers bloom in the late summer and early fall here I planted a few hills of cucumbers on the front portion of the stock tank and scattered sunflower seeds over the rest of it. I’ll let the cucumber plants spill over the sides while the sunflowers grown.
I did a quick photos shop of what it will look like once the flowers are in bloom and I do believe it will be a beautiful sight. There’s nothing better than rusty junk in the garden it makes me happy just looking at it
