Ammo Boxes Turned Vegetable Garden




I found these ammunition boxes at the dump here on the military installation where I live. Filled with dirt, planted various vegetables and viola, an awesome garden made from reused materials. This one has part of a pallet I found at the dump also.

    My boyfriend would kill me if I poured dirt into one of his gun or ammo crates! I would have to buy ones specifically for it and even then I think he would be upset that that's what I did with them haha.
