TerraCycle Garden Products Review and Giveaway


For our Moms Who Mow event Terra Cycle wanted to share their recycled products that are great for gardening. I love the products from Terra Cycle we even have a back pack made of recycled billboard! The idea of recycling old packaging and stuff to make new things is awesome and so very frugal!

We had the chance to review some of the Gardening products made by TerraCycle for the event. We reviewed the Recycled Plastic Hanging Planter and the StonyField Farms Children's Vegetable Grow Kit.

The Hanging Planter and Veggie Grow Kit

 
My plan was to plant the veggie seeds in the hanging planter so the cats that live near by would not mess with the planter. It worked too! The tomatoes seeds have not yet made a stalk but I know they are on their way.



The planter was easy to set up and hang by our front door. The vegetable grow kit was a fun thing to do with my son. He could only watch but he sat in his outdoor chair and I explained to him what we were doing. He smiled away eating his snacks as he watched me. The grow kit is simple to use. You just tear off pieces of the packaging that contain the seeds in it and plant into the yogurt cups filled with soil and worm compost. How cool is that!

Filled the hanging planter with the packaging that contains seeds.

We planted seeds in the yogurt cups too


I take my son outside to water the plant daily and he smiles as I explain to him that we give it water to make it grow. He says juice sometimes when we use the water which makes me laugh since all liquids other than milk in a bottle are juice to him. I can't wait until we see the plant start to grow and then eat the tomatoes from the plant. I find growing plants that provide food so rewarding.

They also have a really cool Recycled Plastic Hexagonal Picnic table that looks great! Its on my wish list!
