Crowds will pack the convention center in downtown Seattle this weekend for the final two days of the Northwest Flower & Garden Show.
I spent the day there yesterday, and was inspired by reuse of old stuff, some interesting new ways to grow plants, a “steampunk” inspired show garden, and seeing old friends.
Here are some images from my visit.
Very nice design for a key season extension device from the local builders at Cedar Cold Frames.
The Edible Seattle folks are handing out scads of free magazines. And it happens to be the Nov/Dec issue, which has my article on seed saving!
Got a shipping pallet sitting around? Ballard Reuse could show you how to turn it into a cool bench.
An old bike painted a bright color with plants added in strategic places would make a whimsical piece of garden art.
And another bike/planter.
This is the Foody Garden Tower, which is how we will all grow veggies in the garden of the future.
David Hutchison in his element, at the Flora & Fauna Books booth. Lots of unusual finds there.
The “Romance of Steampunk” show garden evoked another era.
Old windows repurposed into a shed — probably the easiest way to build a cold frame.
This herb ladder from Ballard Reuse demonstrates an easy project with some old wood.
