Container Gardening Ideas On Pinterest

With the Spring Season just around the corner, I can't help but think of gardening again. I mean, getting our garden ready, planting seeds indoors, all that stuff. Like I said before, we still have our own place in Kansas and this Spring Break we are heading back. And if the weather is right and the soil is dry, we will be able to till the garden, getting it ready for planting. But it won't be a huge garden this year though because we won't be around that long this summer to fully enjoy some fresh greens.

And with that said, I also want our own little garden where we live now in Wyoming. Since we are renting a house, we don't really get to make our own backyard garden, so I thought why not make a container garden instead. I have been collecting tin cans and egg cartons so I can use them to plant vegetables. Nothing really beats fresh veggies, especially if it is something that you planted and free from harsh chemicals. I have been searching on Pinterest for some Container Gardening ideas and inspiration and here are some of my favorites.

I also wanted to try planting carrots in pots because we have never really been successful in planting carrots in our garden. Also, because we do have a family of bunnies that love to visit our garden every day. And planting some potatoes too in a potato tower. I sure hope I could do all that. Here's what a potato tower looks like.

And gardening won't be fun and festive without these fun, colorful, easy to build wind chimes made out of cans to hang outside. Ahhhh... so many great ideas that I would love to do when warm weather sets in. How about you? Any gardening plans this year?

I also wanted to make this for my kids outside so they can have things to hit with and make music. 

While I was thinking about Spring and Gardening, I also remembered this video taken a couple years ago of my little man and his mud bath in our garden where we planted seeds. Enjoy! 


  1. oh dear, i would probably consider the container plants this summer, my gardening last year were not so lucky...i hope to find a nice harvest this year though... and the cans, just a great idea to create.

  2. I'm not really into gardening especially when we don't have anywhere to grow it. Pots are perfect though for apartments like ours. Your son had a blast soaking himself in the mud :D

  3. I can't wait for another year of gardening! :) I have seen lots of that layered herbed pot gardening. You will never go wrong when planting herbs :)

  4. I really like those layered pot containers. The tin cans for chimes is a nice idea too.

  5. I love gardening, I'm not the best at it, but I try every year to do a little more and learn a little more. These are some great ideas and tips. I love pinterest for inspiration!

  6. I love the idea of the colander. This kind of things remind me of what my father used to do.

  7. Pinterest have so many great ideas for everything.

    1. I might try the hanging cans, it looks great as a decor outside.

  8. Pinterest is always full of amazing ideas!!!<3 Reminds me, I haven't checked out mine >_>
