So when we moved into this house a year ago, this little beauty was hanging in the basement. A three-tiered produce basket, dusty, rusty, missing a chain, held together with string, and covered in onion skins.
Which later had to be replaced with with taller empty spray paint cans so that they were fully extended. After the outsides were dry I flipped the baskets over so I could paint the rims. I knew by this point I wanted to use them as hanging planters so the insides didn’t matter.
The fun part was turning them into planters. I bought coconut husk basket liners, some potting soil, and strawberry plants!
For the smaller baskets the liner was too tall and had to be cut short.
Then all that was left was planting.
I re-connected the baskets with new chain that I purchased at Canadian Tire, and then I was ready to hang it outside my front door!
I hope there is enough sun in the front for these guys, and that they send out runners cascading into the lower baskets. It may be too much to hope that I will actually get real-live edible strawberries … but maybe?
