Using galvanized livestock troughs for planting is a great idea, but the drilling is no easy job.

This is a timely gardening idea as I JUST this morning pulled out some old troughs and thought I should drill holes. (Well, my husband should drill holes.) I do more and more container gardening, these days. The only (bad) thing about small containers is, of course, they they dry out quickly. My gardens are too expansive to think of drip systems (very spendy) in most places. But I have a few ideas where these troughs would be terrific. AND they would make great indoor containers for some spring plants--primrose, maybe. I agree

Thank you for writing- it has me thinking. Now I feel lucky my two galvanized tubs are rusty and already leak.
