Yesterday I decided to pot some plants so that I can grow my own herbs, lettuces and strawberries.
My Dad gave me a big plastic pot that was a big plastic butt and he used a saw to cut it in half and use it as a big plant pot. My husband drilled some holes in the bottom for water drainage.
I had all the herbs and lettuces in little pots and they will have much more room to grow in the big pot, I filled in about halfway with compost and then planted all the herbs and lettuces. Then added more compost around them and watered.
I also posted this to the Instructables website.
