Yep, I’m still planting flowers. I’m sure there will be another frost, but I just can’t help myself. Especially on days like today when temperates were approaching 80 degrees! Thankfully everything I’m planting can be taken inside when that final frost arrives.
Remember my food mill turned planter that I whipped together last year? Well, I whipped them up again this year and thought I’d share the process.
They come together super easy and the process is pretty self explanatory. Let’s get going!
First, gather all your goodies. I’m using three types flowers. Bacopa (the white one) and two varieties of Million Bells. I like these because they both trail beautifully. I found both of my food mills on ebay and picked up the liners at Wal-Mart.
Last year I used moss to help hold in the water. It didn’t work well. I noticed the food mill dried out really quickly. So this year I picked up a couple hanging basket liners in hopes that would help hold in more water.
The liners were a little big, so I cut them to fit and placed them in the mill.
Then I just filled it with plants.
And made a mess.
Then I watered. (I told you this was pretty self explanatory.)
That’s it! Done.
I planted two food mills, the first goes on my front porch…
…and the second goes on my side porch.
Unique, easy, a little vintage, and a whole lot of fun!
What fun, unique things do you plant your flowers in?
