    BECCA: saw your post about gardening for the first time...I do container gardening .we are also renters...Any kind of buckets/containers will work.
    check with the fast food places in town and see if they have any pickle buckets.they are great for patio tomato plants as well as spinach, leaf lettuce and salad blends also the big metal cans from veggies (#10)
    can be used for growing herbs, individual varieties.just remember to punch holes in the bottom of whatever you use.the plastic tubs are easier to drill several small holes in. Use a large nail to make holes in the metal cans...it's a good idea to raise the containers off the ground so they can drain properly, cinder blocks,with the holes facing up to allow water to run off, or wood pallets for free, they work also... buy the bagged potting/garden soil such as miracle grow brand...just use a good quality soil, for the best results...good gardening and enjoy the project and results...BONNIE
