So, this is kind of silly, but I'm quite pleased with my resourcefulness. There's a retail development near my house that recently installed a bunch of landscaping (quite poorly, I might add.) Anyways, next to the heap of unplanted pots of shrubs, one of the stetches of grass was strewn with half-gallon tall-sized nursery pots, which I decided to nab as I was heading home from work the other day. Then, on the way back to my car I found a bunch of five-gallon pots by the dumpster as well. All total I got about fifty - a stack of each that comes up to my chest. Enough to put every one of my outdoor plants into a bigger pot, once I go buy a few bricks of peat. Keep your eyes out! I could've paid $3 for each of these pots at the nursery down the road. There are a lot of great freebies around if you're paying attention.
Anybody else have any good found item stories? I'm wondering where I can find used pond liners from when people decide to get rid of their ponds.
