3Rs - Reusing/Recycling/Repurposed

K, here's my plan sss (short, simple, & sweet) - instead of the usual houseplants that don't put food on the table I'm gonna go with vegetables such as this hybrid patio tomato plant. Not the most flavorful but come December when we're craving a fresh tomato it will do.
I also have a very large planter filled with a 3 y.o. Rosemary bush, Basil, Oregano, Parsley, & Thyme, but I don't count it since it's just herbs.
The planter is a re purposed vacuum canister from a broken shop vac. Hubby drilled a few tiny holes in the bottom for water drainage.  So consider this also a post about reusing/recycling/repurposed (3Rs)
Note to self - remember NOT to shove it behind a stack of dry wall.

Anyone else had success with indoor gardening of veggies?

Back to stripping wood work.

  1. Good use of an old vacuum.With the rollers you can roll it outside during warm sunny days.
    No,I haven't got any experience with indoor veggies.I'm too cheap to buy grow lighting.Usually around mid Feb. I start my veggie seeds in the basement,but they die before planting in the garden because I started them to soon.

  2. Second that about the grow lights. Not to mention that an excessive amount of lighting can make you a target. I'm thinking that if I can get this one plant to fruit then we should have tomatoes @ least once a week on our salads.


Thanks, good to know there are other's with this interest
