The Friday Five: The Home Depot

I recently received a gift card from one of Canada’s favourite home building centres – The Home Depot (thanks!). Over the last year I have made so many trips to The Home Depot with my parents as they were going through their renovation. As for my own needs, since I’m in a rental, I’m usually there when I need paint, garden supplies (i.e., tomato plant seeds), or feel inspired to make some DIY jewelry with brass ball chains and washers (I’ve made both and love them.).

I made a trip to The Home Depot this week because I needed more soil and containers for the seeds that I transplanted. This year, instead of tomatoes, I’m trying to grow green beans, basil, sweet pea, and morning glory as per this recommendation. While I was at the store I decided to put my new camera (more on that later) to use and see what other spring/summer essentials The Home Depot has in stock.

What’s on your shopping list this spring? What makes The Home Depot the right place for you?
