    You know those tubs HD & Lowe's sell for mixing concrete?

    Those are handy early in the season for watering flats. Having another one to wash veggies on the lawn makes it so I don't have to bleach the first.

    The things are the size of a small wheelbarrow, tho. No way that I can carry them with any water in there but they are handy otherwise.

    :gig At least now it's truly a "garden" tub! Good use for it. :clap

    My Mom has one of those huge tubs and has never used it....takes too much water to fill the thing, so she just uses it to store toilet paper, her scale, etc.

    Most definitely, you don't want to leave a ring in there. Or is it the soap that does that. ;)

    Good luck out there, Major'! Happy for you about kiwis and all.

    My pepper plants came right through the frosts, untouched!

    They don't seem to be doing anything - except ripening.

    I still have blossoms on my tomato and pepper plants. Can't pull them up when they are still trying so hard to make me happy. But today is the day to dig sweet potatoes, so I'm heading outside now to see about that. Hope I don't run into any Black Widows this year. :fl

    Experiencing pure coveting over your rich, black soil and the beauty and health of your plants!!!!! :th :th :th It looks like you could plant dimes and grow dollars in that soil!!! :love

    Will start the general garden cleaning this next week here as well. Only, this year it will be much, much easier in some ways and a little labor intensive in others. New method, new fall chores.
