Their Way and then My Way

I LOVE   ” truly”  simple Do It Yourself projects.  I often spend lazy hours searching the web for fun and interesting projects that “anyone” can do. I specially like small garden and flower bed projects.

I live in a mobile home park so yard space is very limited. I am always trying to cram a lot in to a very small space, so when I saw this stacking pot project I just knew I had to give it a try.

It covered everything I was looking for.

It was simple enough that anyone could do it.

It had a very small shopping list.

It takes up a very small space.

Plus, you can add your own touches to it. (my favorite part)


So my hubby and I took a trip to our neighborhood Home Depot to gather up the pots and the re-barb rod we needed.

My hubby decided he also wanted to make one of his own, for his beloved tomatoes. I decided on a mint garden to go with my love for tea.

After checking the pots we decided that the plastic ones would be the easiest to work with. After all, we were new to this and we both know that working with anything breakable can turn very frustrating if a mistake is made. Plastic is so much more forgiving.

It did not take long before hubby had his up and looking just fine.

He has 7 tomato plants in his. All different kinds also. Large to cherry.

Can you tell he really loves tomatoes?

After he got his done, we started on my mint garden.

Now the fun comes in.

I did it just like he did and it looked great.

I was happy with it and let it alone “Until”…

I got up this morning and decided it wasn’t “FUN” enough for me.

So I took it all apart (which by the way is very easy to do)

I grabbed a drill and a very large drill bit and drilled a couple extra holes. (see plastic came in handy)

Then I re-stacked my pots in a more “FUN” look.


This is my mint garden, just waiting to be clipped and used in my tea.

So, see what you can do. Easy and very inexpensive. Do NOT be afraid to add your own personal touches to it.
After all, it is called a Do It Yourself Project!!
