Are you starting your gardens yet?
We've still got piles of snow to deal with up here in Alaska, with the ground just beginning to show. I have a feeling it is going to be a messy, messy break up (breaking up means snow melts, not relationship issues) this spring, and have already ordered my mud boots. We are many weeks from being able to till soil!
I have been dreaming of building this potting bench for over a year now ...

Hopefully this will be the year!
But regardless, if I do make this potting bench, it will be a few weeks out, and I know many of you need something today.
So today's Feature Friday links to five Potting Bench Tutorials you can tackle. Well, six actually!
And don't forget, we have Simple Step-By-Step Potting bench plans that I developed last year, built by navylangs. Check it out!
Are you ready to get building? Enjoy the links!
Awesome Idea #1
From Fresh Home: With just a few basic tools and an afternoon, you can create a bench for potting, transplanting and even displaying your flowers and spices. Your aching back will thank you!
Awesome Idea #2
This potting bench is made from reclaimed pallet boards! For those of you short on funds but up for the challenge, this little bench packs lots of character and functionality into a small footprint.
Awesome Idea #3
I really wanted to add this one because for those of you building against a wall, this plan will save you time and money. There's not many stronger back legs for a potting bench than you house or garage! This plan is - perfect if you are short on funds and time, but want some outdoor countertop space.
Awesome Idea #4
I loved this potting bench because the top slides and is a grate, so soil spills back into the bins hidden under the grate. The design itself is simple, and uses store-bought garden brackets for shelves and hooks. Great idea!
Awesome Idea #5
This darling potting bench from Lowe's Creative Ideas features lots of storage and good worktop space. I love the mesh back!
And bonus - those hanging frames can be made too! Free plans are available at Lowe's Creative Ideas for the Potting Center Frames. They'd be cute indoors too. Heck - it'd all be cute indoor too!
