I’m always looking for ways to upcycle and re-purposed worn out items in the garden. In my latest craft for HGTV Gardens, I turned a leaking garden hose into a harvest basket for the vegetable garden. Of course, it has many more uses including toting around garden tools, holding weeds and it even works as a nice place to corral and wash off your produce before bringing them into the kitchen.

|Fresh dry herbs ready for bundling|
We have been harvesting and drying herbs here. One of my favorite things that we enjoy making are these natural mosquito repellent bundles aka Bug Bombs. The kids named them. Sage, mint and lavender all naturally repel mosquitoes. We like to gather up these herbs and tie them together. We then add them to the fire to smolder and smoke away those biting pests.
