I am loving all the planter ideas on Pinterest this summer, but can't afford the pretty ones or find the vintage ones. So, I came across my vintage applesauce masher and made it a planter. Now I can have a memory of my Mom in the garden! And let's be honest, I'm not mashing applesauce any time in my near future: Okay, in my lifetime! Just line the masher with landscape cloth and weight the bottom with a rock. add your plants and potting soil and water. But what do I do with the wooden masher?
