Preparing A Garden Tire For Planting


Before the snow started to fall in my area, I decided to prepare an old tire as a garden. The tire is not good to use on a vehicle anymore. It was given to me for free. Tires make a great place to garden. I plan to plant some flowers or a rose bush here. I have not decided yet.


My precious grandson was over for a little while. I was babysitting him. Look at those big beautiful eyes. I love looking into his eyes. They are so dreamy and make me fall deeper in love. My grandson was a big help in helping me prepare the tire, to where I can plant in the spring.


My grandson filled the cup up and helped me pour it into the tire. Cupful by cupful. He is a big helper.


It may have taken a little longer allowing him to him help me this way. Yet, it created some much-needed bonding time. I can tell you my grandson is not afraid to get his hands dirty.


After placing the dirt in the tire. My grandson and I placed a bag of mulch on top of the dirt. Slowly, cupful by cupful. I think he has a knack for gardening. What do you think?
