Trash to Treasure

My house-mate Crystal is a dynamo. She just finished her first year of vet school and every time she has a break from school something fabulous happens to the yard. Here's the latest:

She bought the old tub and window from a place in Berkeley a while ago and it's been sitting in our yard for a few months. But after school was over for the summer, she filled the tub with empty plastic bottles. She added a layer of mulch, then potting soil, then she planted it with herbs.

She also mulched the whole yard and the garden. It was basically hard-pack dirt before and now it's gorgeous!

Bravo Crystal!
