Gardening provides wonderful opportunities for reuse of discarded containers. This picture has summer savory in a foam egg tray, dill in half an orange juice jug, shallots in a clear plastic box with vent holes that held strawberries, scented geranium cuttings in plastic cups and parsley in foam coffee cups. All these containers were washed out and those without drainage had holes punched in the bottom.
After the plants have been transplanted to the garden the containers marked for recycling will be washed again and added to the bin for Wednesday’s pick up. If not, they will finally be added to the trash heap.
