One of my favorite unique containers came in a most unexpected form…

 
Okay, what does an old, rusty pickup truck have to do with plants?
 
 
The bed of the pickup was filled with soil and potato plants.
 
Now, if that isn’t a unique container, then I don’t know what is.
 
I saw this bed of potatoes growing at the University of Tennessee garden last year.
 
I don’t think that the truck runs anymore, but it certainly functions as both garden art and a planter.
 
Tomorrow, I have two different unique planters to show you and both are planted on two wheels.
