Journal August 29, 2015 - Planning ahead
Mixing one large batch of media in the wheelbarrow is actually easier than mixing a small batch in a tub. My thinking was: as long as I had all of the supplies out, I may just as well mix enough to make it worthwhile.
As I needed at least fifteen 3 gallon nursery containers for the olives, I looked first to eBay rather than driving twenty or more miles to the local greenhouse supplier. I found what I thought was a good deal on eBay, but I should have done some more online shopping, as I found the same nursery containers available from Home Depot. They had to be ordered online and delivered to the local store for pickup, however, the cost was half the cost of the containers on eBay. So, not to pass up a good deal I ordered from Home Depot also. We have a nice deck that we seldom use, so I intend to use the excess containers to grow vegetables on the deck next season.
