Planting Potatoes? Use an Old Clawfoot Tub

Spot a lovely, if not worn-out, vintage clawfoot tub at an estate sale, fall in love, and then wonder what on earth you'd use it for, provided you had the space? Here's a great answer that'll feed you, too.

Turns out, an old tub makes for a perfect potato planter. With plenty of room for the tubers to take root, you'll not only get a bumper crop of taters but you'll also be boasting an eco-shabby-chic planter in your garden area.
