So the motivation was a recent trip to a friend of mines outdoor container garden and a trip to Old Time Pottery with my dad. I found some vases very similar to the one pictured on the left.
I plan to grow: sage, mint, chives, small onions, cherry tomatoes, and what ever else i think will not take up too much space or out grow my containers quickly.
I'll keep you all posted. Here's a video I watched on Youtube.
