Porch Swing Repurpose
Though I may want to be in denial, winter is coming! It’s time, no past time, to bring in the patio furniture. I must confess that the garage is beyond full. I just made room yesterday to squeeze in the garbage can (as required by city code) and putting the one car into the two car garage is like threading a needle. I really like being an organized person so this bugs me. The small patio table is actually going to have to stay out this year and I was determined to find a place for the patio swing! I was about to disassemble it (can I find the directions to put it together next spring?) when I realized that it would make a dandy frame to hang my grow light. This grow light has previously been in the basement and while the set up worked, the light shared the one available electric outlet and because it was out of sight, I frequently forgot to turn it off or on. I’ve tried several timers and they never seem to work consistently either.
The table was already home to a rosemary, orange and lemon trees. An added benefit of this set up is the south facing window so I should be able to have wonderful light when it’s time to plant. I may even try to plant some lettuce now and see if I can grow it completely indoors. I wonder if husband will let me hang the swing seat from the ceiling…..of the garage…….
