Potting Bench Corner

Our garden is in a former corral. That works well because the corral fence keeps the deer away. In the corner of the corral is a roofed area that provided shade for the horses. I built a potting bench in the corner and now it is a perfect shady spot to house our garden materials and do some work. We use galvanized garbage cans to hold potting soil, peat moss, etc. I put up some hooks for garden tools. Our wire cages, poles and chicken wire are all ready to go as soon as we start planting.

Good idea. Do you have any horses? You are creative.

Nice set-up! All the dirt and muck outside but still handy. Very creative.

Two additions, the chair and umbrella. Actually, there is normally a cooler of beer there too. I have more of the chairs, but we moved them to the deck by the barn. I have to build some more chairs.

What a wonderful spot to sit and watch the garden grow!! Beautiful chair, by the way.

Weirdone – I have 3 pawpaw trees but they are still just sticks in the ground. Maybe some day I will actually see them provide fruit
