Good use for old mini blinds

Toledo, OR(Zone 8a)

After making my roman shade I had four sets of mini blind that I just held on to just incase I needed them. Well, I found a good use for them. How do you like my picket fence?

I wove them threw 20 gauge chicken wire. A little tedious but I think it looks kinda neat and made do with what I had.

Great fence and white stripes should help deter the deer. Luck on your veggies. Looks great so far.

nice jan! great idea. I also use them as plant markers & price tags at the Farmers Market as Crimson said.

Good luck on your first veggie garden, nothing like home grown veggies!

Wow --Never would have thought of that. I've seen chain link fences with slatting weaved through them - was that your inspiration?

Wow! Patience is right. And would you like some more plants to care for, cause it looks like you have WAY too much free time!
