This year we are planting just ONE tomato plant (in a container on our deck), and a few strawberry plants in pretty hanging planters. Last summer I saw a cute hanging planter made from two white colanders that I thought would be really pretty filled with red impatiens . . . or strawberry plants. But it was the middle of the summer by that time, and I already had our yard and garden project finished for the year, so I decided I’d wait.
The other day we stopped into Tractor Supply to look for a power washer to get our deck cleaned up and painted. Right there, in the next aisle over from the power washers, was a shelf filled with fun yard and garden accessories. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful white rocking chairs. I need two of those for our freshly painted deck, I decided. And then I turned around and there was that cute little hanging planter I wanted last summer!
