Drill 3 holes in the bottom.
Fill with potting soil and plants. (I put a layer of rocks on the bottom to improve drainage, before adding the soil.)
We now have a garden! One that can be carried wherever we go 🙂
I bought 6 steel pails Menards had at $5.98, which was the best price I could find. It is enough to grow tomato, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, green bell pepper, basil, and stevia.
I would love to do a bucket of lettuce, onions and cilantro. But, I’ll have to wait until we empty some paint cans…I think they will work fine for the rest.
We definitely need some more basil plants too, the way it disappears.
Grilled tomato-basil sandwiches are a summer staple over here.
Eaten today in Jude’s choice spot: the entryway.
