Chic, I just can't do the whole garden thing alone. Dh says he'd help, but realistically, he works 10-12 hour days and neither one of us are spring chickens anymore. I figured the containers I could keep up with better.
Pat, I'll have a look at thrift stores, but I've not seen any in the past. I'd really like two of those gigantic ones at Walmart, but the suckers are like 40-50 bucks. And that's the newer ones that look like stone but are some kind of foam. I like the idea of being able to handle them myself, but, sheesh!
I do have three really long narrow box planters I bought to use on my deck raillings, but they damaged the wood underneath. Maybe I could use them someplace else....Liz.
