Frugal Tools: Old Sheets
One of my favorite frugal gardening tools is an old sheet! When your sheets (either flat or fitted & even pillow cases!) are getting too thin to use on the bed, carry them out to your gardening shed and put them to work in your yard!
early frost. In that case, it was a perfect frost blanket!
cleaning up my flowerbeds and veggie garden, I am using it to collect dead plants & other debris. It is simple, just spread your sheet out on the ground and throw in your garden debris. When you need to move to a new location, grab a corner or two and pull it along. Once you are all done tie opposite corners together and carry it where ever you need to go. I even throw the tied up bundle into our vehicle to carry plant debris to the city compost site if I need to. It also makes a great 'tarp' for collecting tree leaves & plant debris to carry to your own compost bins.
Why spend money on one of those drawstring tarps when you can use something you already have. I call that a win, win. I don't have to spend money AND I don't have to throw away something that's past it's useful life in the house. :)
Do you have any frugal gardening tips?
Happy gardening! :)
