it is somewhat troubling to see all the items that are put out on the curb lawn on trash day….where does it all go?….given the current economy (okay, maybe i’ve always been a scavenger…now i just have an acceptable excuse!), i have taken to looking at my neighbor’s castoffs in a different way. i have found a useful table for my seedlings, grass clippings for my compost, and my favorite find of all is pictured below…it’s an old wooden ladder that someone probably found in the back of their garage. i took it home cleaned it off, gave it a once over with a sander and now use it as a towel rack in my bathroom…what treasures have you found?
