That' so cool. Shows that you don't have to have a large property to grow a garden. Would be an idea to try and figure out how to put wheels on them so they can be moved into the sunny areas as needed. Or in and out of the cold as we seem to be doing right now. Some of those containers do come with wheels. Edie

I like the idea of cutting holes in the lids. This will help tremendosly to help keep moisutre in, yet lets air and rain get to the roots.

Good idea, Granny! Maybe they will get that feedback and improve the 2009 model :)
