Garden_What's in your Drawers?

What's in your drawers?
A little creative recycling today using drawers from an old dresser as planters. I stuffed the areas under the top drawers with newspaper and lined the bottom with newspaper.  Added loose layer of river rocks and  fill with a manure compost mix.  Then planted a collection of seeds...corn, okra, spaghetti squash, cucumbers, beets, diakon radishes and marigold.  Let's see what happens!
