They would probably hold up well here. We don’t have any burlap coffee sacks here at my house, but I wish I could figure out some way to reuse those used paper coffee filters besides just throwing them in the compost pile!

Comment on Fabric Pots: Container-Gardening Magic by Sarah https://deliciousbackyard.com/fabric-pots-container-garden/#comment-8 Fri, 23 Mar 2018 17:12:45 +0000 https://deliciousbackyard.com/?p=26#comment-8 You know, my little grapefruit trees are growing in fabric pots. I took them to overwinter in a friend’s greenhouse, where they were warm, humid, and sadly overwatered for 6 months. When I came back, there was green stuff growing on the surface of the soil and on the fabric pot.

But otherwise, the pot itself was unaffected. They’re made out plastic fibers, like that felted landscaping cloth that doesn’t biodegrade.

If you wanted fabric pots that would biodegrade, you could sew them out of burlap coffee sacks. That would be an interesting project!

(We can get crazy mildew here if we’re not careful, on things that you’d think wouldn’t attract mildew, like leather!) The fabric pots seem like a nice alternative to plastic.

Hi Jacquelyn, thanks for stopping by 🙂 Standing upright and using a scuffle hoe is much easier on your back and knees than traditional weeding! And if you have a literal jungle on your hands, it’s really your only hope of staying ahead of those weeds. I don’t know how weeds take over the garden so fast — they can only move at the speed of plants, right?!

I also didn’t know that hoes were used for weeding. Using a hoe would probably help me to beat back the jungle, which is always trying to take over my yard!

Hi Danielle, thanks for visiting 🙂 Being garden-less is as painful losing a pet, isn’t it?? I signed up for plots at a couple of community gardens this year. Would that be an option for you?

Hi Anna! Thanks for visiting 🙂

Here’s a video of a scuffle hoe in action https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLJWluLPlcM Doesn’t it make you want to swoon? When I first used mine, it cleared my garden way too fast and I went scouting around my property for more places to use it!

I used to have a large garden as well, surprisingly, when I lived in the city.
Now that I have a rural property, I have a few raised beds for vegetables – too many rocks to dig up the land without a tractor. The front flower gardens give me a decent enough workout.

I had no idea hoes were meant to cut weeds. I thought they were just to move dirt around to airate the soil. 😬

I’ll have to invest in a better hoe, now that I know what they’re meant for!!
