Choosing Garden Containers

When choosing your gardening containers think outside the pot. 

Years ago my neighbor was tossing this water trough that had a hole in the bottom. Sometime later I acquired this galvanized milker that is hanging on the side of the trough. My daddy found this old porcelain coated dishpan for me. This little corner of my deck contains a few of my favorite things. 

The dishpan has become a succulent dish garden. The trough makes a great container garden for many things. I have grown bell peppers, lettuce, cilantro and quite a few other things in it. Since it is deep it makes a great container for plants that are deep rooted. The milked usually has lettuce or some herb in it. 

Anything galvanized is one of my favorite things!
