Frugal Project #2: Berry Nice!
A sweet way to repurpose those empty plastic cat litter containers!
Perfect for balcony planting!
Three cats. That's a lot of cat litter. The cardboard boxes (with handles) were easy to repurpose - they make terrific packing/storage boxes and fold down flat when not needed. What to do with these plastic cat litter containers. I just couldn't see myself throwing them out - what waste! With that in mind and my garden planning for the spring, an idea took root.
Strawberry planters! Yes! I was going to purchase a couple (I love strawberries) but the hefty price tag of the strawberry jars had me holding off. With another look at the containors, I came up with a solution. Just follow the steps in the photos and pretty soon, you will have delicious berries growing and save from adding to the local landfill.
You could plant something other than strawberries but the size of the container really doesn't allow for growing taller plants.
