I have been clearing out the rooms of my house, but I've also been thinking of a couple of things that I would find enjoyable to own.
This year I want a basket. I've been trying to find the exact thing, but it's tough to define. First, I would use it to walk out to the garden and pick lettuce, and then later in the year it would need to hold tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and all sorts of other vegetables.
For this garden basket it want a basket with a handle that I can hold in the crook of my arm and it needs to be big, but not super huge.
A couple of types that I have found that I like so far
Something like this looks pretty good, but I'd have to hold it to know if it is comfortable (plus the price is pretty steep). I would probably take the fabric out.
Then there are the other things I want use the basket for. Bread and such. oh man so many uses, but I don't want a house full of baskets I just want one that works perfectly for the garden and sufficiently for the rest of it.
I think my best bet is to start looking at thrift shops where I can try a basket out and then not pay through the nose when I find one I like.
Where do you find garden items that they don't sell at the big box garden shops?
