This year was my very first attempt at gardening, and one of the biggest successes I have had so far is my large supply of potted mint (which I plan on using to make a significant batch of mojitos this weekend). I’ve watched both my strawberry and blueberry plants shrivel up and have dealt with a pesky squirrel who couldn’t get enough of my flowers, but the mint and a few other plants I’ve thrown in here and there have made all of my efforts totally worth it.
If you’ve always dreamed of having some sort of garden, whether it consists of flowers, fruits, veggies, or herbs, you may want to take a bit of inspiration from Imgur user, sightfire. He managed to turn an old fire hose into the coolest hanging planter I have ever seen! To see how it was done and how easy it is to make one for yourself, check out the tutorial below.
