If you live in the upper Midwest, you will understand why I am thinking about gardening. It is March and we've been setting records for daily high temperature.....in the 80s this week. It feels like June, not March. While I find this disturbing, I am also thinking about gardening this year. Specifically container gardening. And in order to do that, I need containers.
I have a few houseplant containers, one large terra cotta container, and 2 large plastic containers. In an effort to add a few more items to the garden I am going to take another large terra cotta container from my office (a palm was dying a slow death -- not the thing you want when you do estate planning). I am also thinking of using empty coffee containers (made of tin) and possibly cutting down plastic cat litter containers. I love the idea of reusing these items, and not having to purchase other containers.
Does anyone else have suggestions on good containers that might be a happy home for tomatoes, peppers, and herbs this summer?
