Enter the salvage yard. We needed a barrel for farm work and thought this would do it. It didn't. The barrel, cut in half and mounted on legs to stabilize it, looks like a spot for perennial flowers to me now. With a few spilling over the sides one would never know what this really is. The edges are beaten down so the sharp sides are not accessible. I think this might happen...

We attended a talk on keeping plants in containers year round. It turns out that if larger than 24 inches, a container does not dry out as quickly and the plant stays healthier. Every large container we have seen for planting is plastic and still costs a fortune, if made from metal or wood is really expensive.
