Here is the project I was most excited to finish. Its a galvanized tub I picked up at Southern States. I drilled drainage holes in it and added heavy duty casters on it so I can roll it around easily. I've been using it to block off the exit of the deck when I want to keep the kidlets up top. I filled it with different herbs, and they are filling in fast. Here's the planter the day I finished it (mostly, I did add a few more herbs in there after this picture)
Here's it afterwards. I bought a squash plant and sank it in the soil to keep it happy while I get project #2, my raised bed, complete, but it took off so fast in the tub that I decided just to leave it in there.
I've still got a bunch of plants to get in the ground since I made a weekend trip to Big Bloomers, but that will have to wait for another post. I'm about halfway done with them, fingers crossed for more great weather this weekend.
