I called this one "Debra In Heaven" August of 2007. I loved this corner barrell and all the containers around it.

Hi Allison - Good to see you. Yes, I can see why they would be favorites! I love Coleus. Are those regular or oversized cups?

I'm going to get busy planting some containers so I have something to post in this Forum.
This one is from a few years ago.

It feels good to be able to visit around again. The database thing is really intense for me. I know how to use my computer and that is about it. Big learning curve. : )
I got to plant about 30 chicks yesterday that I harvested from around the gardens and pots. Looks like most everything made it through Winter in good shape.
Love the little tea cup plantings. I also like the way you used the pots. It looks like a wall of color.

It's all about choices.
We had a workshop this weekend on making this gardening container ... out of the backing used for mounting tile. It is made out of cement, I believe, and other stuff. Anyway...the sheet comes in sizes to cut easily, galvanized corners (2 each corner) are screwed on to hold it together. If making a maximum size of 4x4, the weight of the soil gets heavy, so they mount eyebolts to the center of the panel with a wire connecting the two that hold the box in shape. This 'board' has been growing vegetables for 3 years with no sign of wear...and the one they have planted with beets is wonderful. Total cost for this box is way under 100$ AND you aren't dealing with toxins from treated lumber nor worrying about rotting wood. I was very impressed!!!

This is a smaller (2x2 box)they built for the demonstration.

This is my Radio Flyer wagon garden. I almost threw it out because the front wheels had broken off. The 'anything is a planter' side of me came out. Rolling on the floor laughing
