Poppy's Creations--Finally I got my container garden up and running (sort to say). We used two 55 gallon food grade barrels, cut them in half, drilled holes in the bottom and around the bottom edge for drainage, added gravel for drainage and potting mix packed with nutrients to help with growth for up to 9 months. Progress pictures to be posted as we grow!
