A couple of weeks ago, we all traveled up to the quaint town of Prescott, AZ.  One of the best things that I like about going there is that they have some very good antique shops.

To be honest, I hadn’t planned on buying anything.  I was just going to browse – but you probably know how that goes….

Two different items caught my eye and I thought that they would be perfect for my garden.

Okay, maybe it isn’t obvious what I am going to do with these two antique pieces.
 My plan is to use the old watering can as a planter in my vegetable garden.  I plan to add annual flowers that will spill out the top.  
All I need to do is to add some holes for drainage on the bottom and put a drip emitter on top for water.

I really like this wire basket.  According to the the seller, it is a wire basket that held wine bottles.
Well, I don’t drink much wine, so I think I will use it in my vegetable garden later this year.
Don’t you think it would make a great trellis for sugar snap peas?
I will simply place the basket in my vegetable garden and plant the seeds around it.  Once they sprout, they will have a great place to grow upward.  Later, when the plants are finished for the season, I will simply take the basket out.
How about you?
Have you discovered any antiques or items that you can use in your garden?
Please share them with me 🙂
