Simple Greenhouse or potted plants

Recyclers-Anonymous fabulous idea we wanted to share with you ... this project may be an original or borrowed idea.

 Using an old Food Container and an old butter dish we created a little herb garden.
Old food conatiners
Screwdriver or something to poke holes

 First thing that you do is to poke holes in the bottom of the container that you will be planting your plants in. The reason for this is when you water it you don't want to drown your plants so the water needs a way to get out of the container.
Then if you want to make a greenhouse you need to also poke holes in the top of the container top. Also if you want to make a greenhouse you need to make sure that the top is clear and see through so that the sun can get through.

After you have the holes you just put the soil in, and plant the seeds. It is as easy as that and is a great way to get rid of old food containers.
