After I made my chicken feeder planter, I grabbed another one of my thrifty finds from last weekend and turned it into a planter too. Nothing is safe from potting soil around here!
I taped the tailgate door down to keep the dirt from dumping out the back. Dump trucks tend to do that.
Then I added a small layer of stones for drainage,
an even smaller layer of charcoal just because I had it left over from my terrarium project
and a really thick layer of potting soil.
Then planted some Limelight Japanese Stonecrop in it
and I was ready to haul my load.
How is your planting going this year? I still have a few things to get potted up. Then I have to get my porch in order. Then sew some pillow covers for the outdoor chairs. Then maybe repaint the Adirondack chairs.
Maybe I can relax in June.
