I called a local business man who is in the nursery trade. Earlier this year he offered me a bunch of the pots that trees are sold in. Customers turn them back in more quickly than he can reuse them. Part of his dilemma is that he does not have a good way to sterilize them for reuse.
Roger still had them. He would not take any money for them. He said I could pay him with potatoes.
|Twenty nursery pots of assorted sizes and styles. Clearly, some of these are better suited to meet my needs than others. But which ones?|
|One of the endearing characteristics of the Classic 2100 (21 liters) are these handles.|
And if we are guys, we must think about our better half. Mrs ERJ can bend over and handle a seven gallon pot filled with potatoes (33 pounds, measured) today. She would not want to fill a semi-trailer load of them but she can move them around. Ten years from now? The 23 pound, five gallon pot with the big, grippy handles will be the better choice.
