Container Gardening Feat: New Use for Old Shoes

Are your Reeboks run down? Have you maxed out your Merrills? Instead of sending old footwear to the landfill, why not refashion your shoes into a pair of funky planters? These soulful mini-gardens were for sale at the Easton Farmers’ Market, but you can make your own with some good quality planting mix and sturdy plants like Seedum or Hens and Chicks. Add a little water and good natural light and you, too, could be the envy of all your well-heeled friends.

Have you discovered an unusual vessel to repurpose for a container garden? I’d love to hear your ideas!
