Unique Garden Containers

Which then led me to thinking I could do the same with a few directions. So I found these easy "how to" ones. Check out this link for a very inexpensive DIY.

How about this one for a creative use of an old car?

Just Peachy Sangria
Cook's notes: The longer the fruit sits in a pitcher the more flavorful it becomes. But do avoid adding so much fruit it could overpower the wine. I would suggest making the drink early in the day for late afternoon or evening serving.
