« Part 1: Flying Blind Part 2 of Garden attempt #2 Spring 2010 series Part 3: No Fish In Here! »

So tomorrow is big trash day in my neighborhood, so I couldn’t resist driving around and taking a look since it only comes once every three months, lol…. and I found a couple shower doors (lil hothouse or cold box perhaps?) and a very new looking and sturdy resin table to use inside new greenhouse until shelving is built :)

I also found a BRAND NEW Champion punching bad for DH and DS16 but that is not part of my garden attempt :)

great finds
wow—every 3 months. That’s cool

I don’t live in town so I don’t know how often they do it around here. I think it is only once a year.

I can see your little gardening area looking SWEET for spring. PICTURES PLEASE>

I use to love scrounging on trash day when I was younger and poor, ;-) but now I’m the one having to get rid of ‘stuff’ that is usually still in good shape but I can’t use anymore. Bad habits are hard to break though, and my eyes still scour things left at the roadside. I have to take a strong hold of myself to make it pass a potential treasure. LOL

Our town has a very active internet-based free-cycling program. Things posted quickly disappear as they are “picked up”. We were able to obtain free goat (dog) houses that way. People are becoming more and more aware of the advantages of recycling and reusing rather than buying new and throwing it away. This may be one of the benefits we will gain these tough economic times.

I used to love what was called clean-up week when I lived in the city.Someone elses junk was my treasures.(lol) It was such a good way to get rid of furniture when you got new stuff and anything else you no longer needed.It sure helped a lot of people out who couldn’t afford to buy new stuff.The city stopped this though.Said it cost too much to remove it all every year.Such a shame.Thank goodness a lot of people are now using free-cycle online instead of the dump.
