Anything that will hold a planting medium, a plant, and will allow drainage is a potential container. Here is a discarded skiff that a local B&B now uses for a flower bed! Do you have any unusual containers?

That is very cool looking! By the way Weezingreens, we're getting blasted with Arctic outflow winds right now from up your way - beautiful sunny day with 80K winds. Anything you can do to stop them???

Liz: Didn't you order that wind...I'll go back and check the ticket in the kitchen. It must have been a misorder.

Weez - kind of wild there for a bit - but somebody up there turned off the fan! Whoever they were - thank them for me.
