I usually get mine from the local garden store. You can also get them from seed catalogs, home stores, Walmart, Target or Amazon. Some grocery stores even have them.

Mail order or online from companies such as Burpee or Twilley.  I get about 7 catalogs in the mail every year, some from companies I never ordered from.  Occasionally, I buy seeds on Ebay, especially from a seller in Russia.

You can see in these photos what the farmer has been up to in the field by my house today. I love the look of round bales in a field on a summer day.

@EnjoyingMyLifeInVA  Strong winds often bring snow across that same field in the winter. As you know, there are pros and cons wherever you live!

Tip: Add a security blanket to your garden.

Whether you use burlap sacks, straw, leaf litter, wood chips or a few inches of finished compost, mulching your garden helps retain moisture, suppress weeds and mitigate temperature swings. Organic types of mulch have the added benefit of releasing nutrients back into the soil as they slowly decompose.  (Fornari)  🌱

@EnjoyingMyLifeInVA    I have not used a rain barrel for my garden since all of my downspouts are ground level.  (Sorry, Angela!)

When  I look at something I see "Planter"...that said,...

Anything in a container...plenty of drainage...IMHO...that is the biggest issue with any container gardening/farming....

@AaronA108617   I do many times too, Aaron....especially during the Springtime and I am getting things together for my gardening.  It's really amazing how many cool things you can turn into planters and make your garden/yard look that much more interesting.

I also like funky little things to place in among my flowers too!

I will be posting more photos soon of the current project I'm working on. I have posted about 50 new ones on the website...
