A chair as a planting container? A bread box? How about a toolbox or trough?
There are fresh, fun, and easy container gardens that you can fill your yard with.

If you lack room in your yard for vegetables or particular types of plants, such as succulents, there are ways to use containers to add them, including spots on a deck, balcony, or patio — or even going up with vertical gardening, which can be used indoors or outdoors. Theming containers is another alternative; try growing a planter full of salad greens or grouping strawberry jars.
