Round looks a bit formal
Potagere, a French word for kitchen garden sounds so much more elegant than what it describes.  However, a potagere really can be elegant. 
The wicker obelisks are lovely
The French design their kitchen gardens on a grand scale.

It is starting to warm up and my perennials are making an appearance.  I have been thinking of what vegetables to plant this year.  We have to plant in pots or raised beds to keep the ground squirrels from decimating our efforts to raise a few vegetables.  This year I am considering these...

Unless they have little squirrel sized grappling hooks, I am hoping the slick sides of these will deter the depredation!  Have any of you used these watering troughs for planters?
