Leo loves to grill. He is a master at grilling steaks, but he only uses a charcoal grill. Our trusty, black Weber grill had to be replaced a few weeks ago. So Leo bought another trusty, black Weber grill since the other one had lasted about 7 years.
So after he got the new one set up I said, “Don’t throw away that old grill! Let’s make a planter out of it.” (I had actually seen the idea in the magazine Flea Market Gardens.)
But I didn’t want a black planter. I thought we should paint it. So Leo bought some spray paint and painted it green.
I had a few extra plants that needed planting. I put a begonia, some coleuses, basil, oregano, and chives that I grew from seed, and some Black-eyed Susan (Thunbergia alata) volunteers that were coming up along the fence from where I had planted them last year. Are you familiar with this vine?
Last year I had them growing along our garden fence. They are very easy to grow from seed. They love the sun and the heat. This picture was taken last year.
I put some in the
grill planter and look at it now!
