New Old Container

Here's my latest metal container find for the garden.
I've never seen a galvanized tub with vertical ribs before.  It also has some red paint remnants around the top edge on one side.  I wonder if it had a "logo" or something painted on it. 

It comes with drainage holes built in!
That is daylight along the circle in the lower left.

I will wait to plant it next spring.  For now, it is a great place to sit a start of Jacob's coat on in front of my trash can planters.

The trash cans are not full of soil.  I have some plastic pots upside down in them, but they are still heavy and do not get moved.


  1. Oh, I love it!
    I have a similar one---and it has "built in drainage holes" as well--LOL!

  2. What a great container! I've never seen one like it either.

    A nice piece to add to your collection.

    Enjoy your week ~ FlowerLady

  3. I converted a rusted out galvanized tub into a planter this year and it is the best raised bed I've ever had. I'd love to find a whole bunch of these at a yard sale!

  4. You're very inventive.
    In Poland, the drought and watch your garden and your ideas.
