We found this affordable way to start a garden from Flickr User Happy Sleepy
: reuse those giant cans that pizza sauce and stewed tomatoes come in, spray them a fun color (use a rust resistant paint), drill a hole in the bottom for drainage and plant away. More pictures after the jump:
You can talk to your local pizzeria (like Abbot's Pizza Company
) and get their extra cans or just save up any cans or jars that you're using in the kitchen.
