~ Recycled Bicycle Tires, In the Garden ~

For those of you who know me, Im always trying to Recycle or Reuse what I have. Today I was cleaning the back Patio and the Hubby and the Kids had done some repairs on their bikes and left Mommy the mess! I know I was shocked too, Not! As I was cleaning I noticed the 2 Bicycle tubes on the ground looking to be resirected. I was rackimg my Brain as to what I was going to use those for. As I was headed to the shed to put them in the Recycle bucket for future use. I noticed my Brandywine Tomato plant leaning. Hmmmmmm, what to do. Went to my pile of wood stakes that I recycled from an old bed frame, and grabbed a couple. Got them into the dirt good and deep. Then I went to get my Gardener's Twine, and had none. Then I thought to myself, what do I have that I can use. AH HA!

The Bicycle Tubes.I cut them in to differnt lengths and strips. tied the tomatoe cage to the wooden stakes. It felt Secure and looked secure. So I decided to secure a Cucumber plant as well.

Then I remebered my Garden Fence was falling apart, so I used the strips on my Garden Gate to secure it back to the pole. I think Recycling is the way to go for Gardners on a budget. I happy to call myself "The Recycling Gardener
