What To Do With An Old Trampoline Frame!
We picked this up a few weeks ago from another property in our street as it was left after the curb side rubbish pick up. Kev said it was probably to big to take, so they just left it there. After driving past it a few times I had another great idea,( brain working over time as usual) and (as I love any recycling project). I said to Kev that would be great if we covered it in chicken wire to grow vegetables under it, which he agreed. If you don't know already we have trouble with all the wildlife eating everything we grow, as we live in the bush, so we have plenty of possums, kangaroos, rabbits,rodents and lots of birds that eat everything. It can be very frustrating. A few months back our strawberries were looking good and I thought another day and I'll pick them, well something beat me to them even though they are fully enclosed with chicken wire. Any way back to our project, just turn the frame upside down and cover with chicken wire, how easy is that, it didn't take us that long. I will find a place in the garden and plant some vegetables under it, it hasn't happened yet, maybe this weekend. As it sits there I've been thinking it could be great to house chickens, It could be moved all around the yard with ease like those ones you can buy that have wheels on them. So when my vegetables are growing well underneath I will post another photo on my blog to show you all.
