Went out and about to get all my adult-things done today with the boyfriend, and ended up with a car full of gardening things for free.
We were heading out and he pointed at a pile of things, telling me to pull over and lookit. So I did.
PLANTERS. PILES AND PILES OF PLANTERS. I got four fabulously long window boxes, pretty round planters, and a watering can. There were rain barrels too, but since I’m not creating a water-conservation system this season, I skipped over them. So I ended up with 15 or 20 brand new, faboo planters, a watering can, and a milk crate for the housemate who collects vinyl records.
We went around a few more roads, but didn’t score anything else. Bummer for the boyfriend, but I’m still supah happy. I’ve got about 30 lettuce seedlings I need to transplant out of their cardboard egg carton mini planters, and those long window boxes will work beautifully on the east side of the porch, where the sun pours down on the plants and gives them a great boost before it gets scorchingly hot outside.
