My new garden takes up most of my free time, so I decided to make all of our containers maintenance free this year. I took some tips from this article so that my plants will come back each spring. You could add some perenials too, but I like just simple greens.

Here are the containers I have in the yard so far:
creeping jenny * red dragon grass * potato vine
(they have to be stored in the garage all winter and watered whenever it's above freezing)
