In June 2016 we sold Cedar Pond and moved over the mountains and far away. We now live in Deer Park , WA where the weather is a bit more extreme than Cedar Pond's and in spite of the challenges we're rejoicing in life in our new home with field and forest just outside our back door. God is so good to us !

Sedums Planted In Recycled Farm Junk ~ Thursday in the garden.
I have so many old and rusty poultry watering containers. Many began to leak years ago so I piled them into the storage shed near my feed room. Last spring I decided to use them as Sedum planters. The planters are hanging on the outside of my goose pen where there is plenty of sunshine and they're easy to water since I have to replace the water in the goose pen every day. ( The geese love to play in their water troughs.)
I bought some of the trailing non-sedums when they went on sale in the spring. The sedums themselves flourish in many plantings I did years ago so I simply pulled them up and planted them in the old poultry waterers.
Sedums planted in old cans I spray painted sitting in an old freezer basket I nailed to a poultry shed wall.
The same poultry shed wall with old pots and pans and a basket of sedums.
This sedum planting is hanging in my Blue Bottle Garden. It thrives here and drops new baby sedums beneath it. All the more sedum starts for next year's spring plantings.
