Flowerpots on a budget

Yesterday the BF and I went on our bikes around the neighbourhood to collect old buckets and the like, because my tomato plants are growing so fast and need new pots, and I don't have enough of them. We were successful, but the stuff was ugly. Really.

I then decided to cover the surface with old newspaper and maybe paint them afterwards.

The result is nice, I like it. Not sure whether to add a layer of weatherproof clear paint on top or just consider it a seasonal decoration that will have to be renewed next year.
the photos are a bit dark, it is raining here and I don't believe in showing only the sunny days - I do leave out my personal rainy days, though. Not all things need to be made public on the internet. ;-)

4 x green

Tropfen
The first picture was taken on saturday. It was so cold and rainy, someone called this weather "the green winter". I haven't seen much spring until now, let alone summer.. There were 3 super nice days, and that was about it.

The second one: Dandelions at night, by the side of the large street, that cuts through our neighbourhood like a fast river.

Mondbeet die Zweite

There's still a lot to do in the garden. I'm still trying to find time to meet the other gardener who wanted to make a flower and veggie bed with me, because she's travelling a lot and has not so much time right now. She's a real trained gardener and I'm just a beginner. I hope to profit from her experience..
I've started to plant something anyway. Salad. But the youths hanging out there like to trample on them on purpose. Today they stepped on the tomatoes in the next bed instead, but the salad plants were walked on the two days before. I find that a bit frustrating, but that's the risk when gardening in public space.

Bohnenpflanze

That's a bean plant I've got from a bean. I put it into some soil in the middle of march, and it's still very small.
