So I am endeavoring to grow my own veggies this year on my balcony. To grow beets I need large wide containers, looking at walmart and home depot they have them for $30 each. That's $60 bucks! Not exactly money saving.
I had some big laundry tubs in storage holding some of ds's old toys. So I bought a clothe sack at the dollar store and put the junk in them, cut holes in the bottom. It was flush with the ground so I looked around the apartment and found these mini packs of playdoh that had hardened and glued them to the bottom.
Voila! $2 spent for 2 huge planting tubs. It's pretty ugly though lol. What do you think?
