I love the soda bottle planters.... So attractive. The ones that look like glasses (using the soda bottle tops!) what is the flat surface on the bottom ?

All I can say is WOW...I could smell the tomato leaves & I love the pots...I want to know how you made the speckled look???? I see it now more recycled stuff=soda bottles on the back porch.

Eee-awwwee, eee-awwwee, eee-awwwee.
*Flashing blue lights.*

Look like cannabis plants to me.

Seriously, though, nice handiwork. Very jealous. My craft skills are crap and Mr Potato Head and Furry Friends tested my patience.

(My dad used to soak a length of string in kero or metho, tie it around a nice blue or green glass bottle, then ignite. Then dip the bottle in cold water. C-r-a-c-k. And with that a perfect edge. The bottle could then be used for holding pots.)

You are confused. It's potting plants, not planting 'pot". :arrow: :lol:

dcarch, I REALLY needed that chuckle right now

Grub November 29, 2006 12:45 AM

hahahaha.

Dopey me.

bizzarbazzar November 29, 2006 12:57 AM

Does that make you one of the 7 dwarfs? Or shall I say in Tville, (more than 7 dwarfs?......9? 10? I think....)

I'm growing Sneezy, but that might be a result of ingesting something else again.

Looking forward to seeing if DC can shake the browns and get some okay fruits from this lot. A challenge, for sure.

bizzarbazzar November 29, 2006 01:33 AM

hehehe.... I suppose if you are growing sneezy (and dopey on another thread) I must be growing sleepy....Unfortunately I was not part of the project this year....Hopefully next year I will be....

Grub November 29, 2006 04:03 AM

Looking at your avatar BB you could be scary.
