Bean can planters for the Base Camp garden

Posted 11/7/2016

Our recycled bean can planters!Our recycled bean can planters!I've done my usual and spread out around base camp! It was inevitable really, leave me too long in any one place and I'll soon have a whole garden of herbs and vegetables growing around me!

See?Base camp last springBase camp last spring Base camp now!Base camp now!

I love growing things (especially food!) and it was something I really missed when we were working together and on the road. It's the perfect way to take a break from the laptop and get a bit of fresh air, and it's lovely to listen to the sounds of the birds nearby and hear the busy buzz of the bees and other pollinators enjoying the flowers you've provided.

The thing is I'm as much a miser as I am a gardener and so I don't ever want to buy brand new pots or planters, plus buying things for a camp spot does end up rooting more than just plants to the place and who wants to stay tied down? ;)
