Part One Re-Purposed Oil Tank #Garden

We have two very old oil tanks we decided to use in the garden. Hubby came home last night and we started working on breaking it open, holy moley this was not easy. Again today my back is breaking.

As you can see we have a bit of a mess to clean up. We are working slowly but surely clearing the crap. He was having a hard time, I was not sure this was going to work.


He broke five of the little saw thingies he was using..

This weekend we will be finishing up the raised beds and sanding and painting these planters.  We are thinking galvanized paint, that will look so awesome with stenciled effects on the front.  I have waited all winter to get out in the garden, there is no time to waste!
