Things were off to a good start here the first part of June.
Then I had a cutworm caterpillar attack of epic proportions around the 20th of June. Hundreds of them on the plants in the potting bench area. I picked them off, used Ortho-max and Sevin, but the caterpillars still managed to do some real damage.
The plants have recovered.
The mop bucket in the barrel planter is hardly visible anymore.
My hanging pots are galvanized pails.

The whiskey barrel on the opposite side of the potting bench has a chicken feeder and galvanized watering can beside it.
The bottom shelf of my potting bench (which is actually a cheap Menards work bench kit) holds most of my watering can collection, including the European one on the right.
Hope you enjoyed the potting bench plantings and garden junk!
