Northwest Flower and Garden Show Recap

Just to start us off...Crops for Clunkers. We loved this garden. The chicken run was on the driver's side and the nesting box was accessable from the passenger side window. You can read more about this project at The Seattle Urban Farm Company.

The theme for the show this year was Sustainability. Seattle Tilth has been a pioneer in that realm for ages. And designer Jessica Bloom created a beautiful "Family's Little Farm in the City' complete with goats and chickens.

Two innovative planter systems: Coldframe and a raised bed from concrete and old bottles. Both will capture heat for your plants.
And a beautiful rain chain made from cut-off blue bottles.

We saw this wall structure throughout the gardens. Handsome and practical.

I have loved the JohnBob Cool Junk booth for years. We finally got to rub shoulders with these two at Farm Chicks last year and that makes me love their booth even more.



Beautiful vintage goods and great presentation.

This booth made us stop in our tracks. Each Rotoluxe planter is made of recycled plastic and made in the Pacific Northwest. Durable, attractive, lightweight and a great product. Visit their website for more information.

So now you can sit in your easy chair, puruse gardening magazines and dream of your garden possibilities. -- Lisa

PS...thanks to Beth for the great photos and a super duper presentation of Outdoor Entertaining Salvage Style. She rocked the room!

I really like how the truck looks because it has been turned into a plant hanger of some sort. The idea of the person who made this is really good...
