Garden Help!

Spring is here. Now weeding is something I only do reluctantly and sporadically, mostly spontaneously and never methodically (these words actually did roll off my keyboard). The idea of preparing to go weed is foreign to me.

I have therefore instituted these handsome (to me) weed bins.

I have four of them, each strategically positioned about the yard. They are made of containers leftover after planting trees and shrubs. The bottom drainage holes are perfect since they are outdoors at all times even half full with pulled weeds and dead leaves. When overflowing, I do empty them.

Drill two holes at opposite ends of the container. Thread through whatever rope/cord you wish to use and then fasten the ends securely. I used leopard duct tape but any other method is fine. The middle section is taped for comfort when carrying.

I don't know which I like better, their utility or the fact that they're NEVER a sore sight.
