I found a whole stack of these sturdy plastic tubs set out for the garbage man (along with tons of goodies plus actual trash) after yet another neighborhood foreclosure/eviction. The key concept behind the 'Water Wise Container Gardens' I make from baby pools, 5 gallons buckets, plastic storage tubs, and more is that the drainage holes are drilled not on the bottom but on the SIDES of the containers. This results in a damp zone for the roots vs. a reservoir of standing water that can (and often does) go anaerobic and rancid in some well known "self watering container gardens". Plus mine are free!!! John
