Empty plastic food containers, such as those for instant coffee and grated cheese, can be useful around the garden or greenhouse.

I've been using containers food comes in as small planters (just a single reuse). We cut some into two if they're large (leaving lid on to make a bottom) - and drill holes in the bottom.
Love to recycle -great for the environment.
My passion is painting but gardening is running a close second.

Carol, good idea. Smiling Thumbs up I have done that with 2-liter soda bottles. Also, 1-liter sport drink bottles and those 1-pound plastic strawberry containers make good ones for seed starting (and the strawberry containers already have holes for drainage). Saves money, too. Big Grin
You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
