I've been seeing people on Instagram and Facebook sharing photos of their garden's bounty....beautiful pictures of fresh produce grown by proud gardeners. But you haven't seen any from our garden...because so far there is no bounty. We got most things out about a month later than I had wanted to and some things even later than that (I just transplanted my pumpkin and squash starts.). Plus we've been infested with rabbits (as you can see below, I haven't been upset about that at all...) and just the other night I saw a raccoon in the compost pile. Ugh!
Even though I don't have any vegetables to pick just yet, I found this cute little Dairy Pail Colander on Anthropologie's website, and I think it would be perfect for picking veggies or berries! With the slots on the bottom, you could wash those veggies outside over other plants with the hose to save water and keep your kitchen clean. Plus, I love anything that makes chores cuter. I mean, who wants to do chores with ugly equipment, really?
Now, I need to find a really cute egg gathering basket! I'd love to get something vintage. My grandma gave me a basket to hold the eggs in the fridge that is vintage. Let me know in the comments below what you use to pick your veggies or gather eggs. I'd love to get some more ideas!
I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July weekend! Stay safe!
