Spring Garden Tips
Re-using Litter Buckets

Are you a cat lover or know one?  Recycle the plastic litter containers into useful garden buckets and storage containers.  I use mine to store birdseed, grass seed, and corn gluten meal.  The buckets are stackable making storage easy plus they protect these materials from mice that find their way into my garage.  The litter containers also work for hauling tools, collecting weeds, moving plants, and many more gardening tasks.  So don’t throw out the bucket, rather give it a second life in your garden, shed or garage.
