I love to garden and in Spring TX we can garden all year long. I just had to overhaul my garden as the wood we used had decomposed. We decided to go to a cinder block garden to solve that problem. This post goes through the process of constructing our cinder block garden. It took several months and was quite a bit or work but we won't have to worry about our garden decomposing again.
Pinner says: Pepper plants would do awesome in cement containers like this. One pepper to a brick. They would thrive on the extra heat from the concrete. :[) Simple and inexpensive way to grow herbs or in my case succulents. If you are a crafty person you can mosiac the concrete by using dollar tree gems and stones and applying epoxy. Allow drying time then plant your heart away.
