Winter is almost non existent as of late yet it is our off season. Off season recreation for us includes days spent in thrift stores, flea markets, and even an occasional yard sale. While shopping last week my wife ran across a long low Rubbermaid brand storage container. It had no lid and was probably utilized to haul a shelf load of what-nots to the thrift store. A two dollar price tag enticed her to see what a long low trough might look like coming out of this mold.
We were both pleased with the results of her labors on this one. Planting season is just around the corner and I am anxious to fill one of these troughs with an assortment of small sized plant material. I suggested she try building a few in different colors. Her response was "you will have to mix me some"! Well I guess I asked for that one! ☺
