Forgot to share CSA week 2’s stash, but here is week 3 (from last Thursday). Again, keep in mind that this is half of a full share – I’m sharing with a friend.

And now some pots I like that I made. In other words, the second installment of …..my favorite pots!

A photo story of some of the hijinx that have been going on in my garden, including snakes, bunnies, and mysterious missing flower buds.

Also note that my tomato support project is going well! I really like the triangle cages with extra support so far, and also seem to be doing well with the trellises with angled bamboo tied to the front. I am threading the plants through as they grow and tying off as needed. Will do a more complete review of the tomato support experiment when they get bigger.

I love flower pots, as I have admitted before. This is one of my favorites. I have 2 cats (Hank and Alice), so I have a lot of “cat things.” At Lowe’s last summer I spied this planter. They had a cat, a chicken, and a rabbit iirc. I noted that I liked it and moved on.

Well my birthday was a few weeks later, and guess what was one of the things my hubby got me? The cat planter! I love it! It reminds me of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland (and there are a few reasons one of my cats is named Alice).

Last year I think I stuck something random in it because I got it later in the season, but this year I picked these orange gerber daisies specifically for the cat planter. It looks like his butt is blooming! It makes me smile.

If I remember, I’ll do a little series on my favorite pots (the pots themselves) or containers (the plants within). Do you have any favorite pots?
