Wildness is a necessity

So I thought this summer I would try my hand at a little gardening.  I don't have the luxury of a backyard so I thought a couple of pots would be nice. 

I used water-based acrylic paint and sealed them up with moisture resistant clear sealant.   Masking tape worked great to mark off the sections in between the color blocks. 

The one pot is less full because I am growing red potatoes in that one so it will get filled up later once the potatoes need more room.  And the other pot has a bean plant, edible Nasturtiums and California Poppies.

I can't wait for everything to start to sprout!

Ain't afraid of God, devil, death, nor destruction. Them's my four aces.

That's a whole lot of gardening in a little tiny space.  I love all the colors you've chosen.  It's bright and cheery, and you just about have to smile when you see it.

Great work.

I love the colors! The design reminds me of The Partridge Family bus.

Love the bright colors and graphic pattern!! What a great way to make run-of-the-mill pots a lot more fun.

great colors and a cute idea.

but how big are the pots?  You have three things planted in one pot?!?!?! Shocked
I guess survival of the fittest.  I'm betting the bean plant wins.
