Use Fish Tanks As Mini Green Houses

Crafty Little Gnome

Earlier this week I mentioned hay bale gardening and Re-nest reader AdrienneAudrey chimed in with her own hay bale growing adventures. Upon further stalking examination of her blog, we picked up a sweet tip that utilizes all those sad and discarded fish tanks you find on Craigslist — mini green houses! Adrienne Audrey lives in Washington and her gardening endeavors can be found over at Crafty Little Gnome. She's taken to hay bale gardening and uses that as the base for her green houses. Planting straight in the hay and topping the seedlings with a fish tank, she's created a nice warm environment to get things growing.

Even if seedling season has passed in your neck of the woods, it's still a great idea to file away for next year, or even grow an outdoor terrarium for your kids to keep an eye on while they burn some energy outside in the sun!

Thanks Adrienne!
