And it just so happens, I have the first entry.<br><br><br><br>
Oatmeal, btw, your hydrophonics garden is excluded from the contest...you'd win hands down. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Great way to recycle little tykes I'd say!<br><br><br><br>
Btw, those are cucs.<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/c/c9/c964c35f_vbattach402.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/c/c9/525x525px-LL-c964c35f_vbattach402.jpeg" style="width:345px;height:460px;"></a>

Cute bethanie! My mom keeps hen and chicks in old boots, some grow out the top, one or two come out of the hole in the toe.<br><br><br><br>
A neighbor has an old toilet by her mailbox that is always full of red geraniums and blue (cornflowers I think) in the sitting area and white pansies cascading down from the tank.<br><br><br><br>
An aunt always kept strawberries in a leaky old wheelbarrow.<br><br><br><br>
The only clever thing I do does not involve dirt. When ever "Its A Boy" I have a bouquet put into the bed of a dump or pickup truck to take to mom and if "Its A Girl" I put a little dolly in a baby bed with flowers. Probably sexist but indoctrinate me later.

oh wow, that toilet sounds pretty. Now I wish I had a toilet laying around to plant up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Your flower arranging also sounds neat. A teensy bit sexist, but that's okay.<br><br>

Here's mine, made from an old oil-drip pan. I found it in my basement--we rent here, so who know's how old it is. It's galvanized, and I didn't bother to scrub the sides, giving it a more rustic look. Plopped it on top of this big ol' log we have on our porch.<br><br>
I've got some annuals, and one Savory herb plant. Was thinking about finding something that will "poke" out of the spout of the pan. The snap-dragons need some love, but the others are doin' alright.<br><br>
See my cool pepper ceramic planter back behind there? I found that at a flea market. Looks just like a bell pepper!! Had a crack in the bottom of it, but that's cool, cause it needs drainage anyway! Looks like the bit of Thyme I put in there is doing better than it's brother in my larger herb container! With all this rain on the east coast (finally it's drying out, now), a lot of plants just rotted in the ground or planter, and got stinky. Yuck!<br><br>
I'd like to put moss on the log. I've heard once that you can make your own moss by blending a bit of moss with some water, then you can spray or spread it on a surface. It then grows to moss. Anybody ever done this? I'm wondering how much you need to start.<br><br>
More, More Creative Planters, folks!!<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/a/a3/a3054188_vbattach421.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/a/a3/525x525px-LL-a3054188_vbattach421.jpeg" style="width:400px;height:300px;"></a>

Oh That's COOL! You're right, very rustic. Oh and thanks for posting Justine, I was beginning to think everyone else just used clay pots.<br><br><br><br>
Where on the east coast are you btw?<br><br><br><br>

West Virginia--Eastern Panhandle. We're right on the Potomac River. Good soil, but shady from the large trees and mountain behind us.<br><br>
Hey--what the heck else was I gonna use this old thing for? And I needed more potting vessels. Pots can get expensive! I've pained them up all cute before--got the cheapo Terra-cotta at Wal-Mart. Cute and fun, if you're feelin' crafty and got the time. . .<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Happy gardening!
