plastic berry baskets

Naughty boy that I am, I disregarded Jane McGary's advice and ordered those
plastic berry boxes (and two days later received them; did the wavering
resolve in my voice as I placed the order suggest that I might call back and
cancel the order?). I am now the proprietor, the somewhat daunted
proprietor, of about four tightly packed cubic feet of them, one thousand of
them to be exact (not that I actually counted them). 


In addition to the plastic berry boxes, I ordered and received two sizes of
plastic "vented hamper style" containers. These are of much heavier weight
than the berry baskets. The openings which provide the venting are wide
enough to allow voles to enter; but by placing one inside another in a
slightly offset way, the opening can be narrowed indefinitely (and yes, I
ordered enough to use two where others might use one). 



My crocuses, which are grown in containers, are comparatively small this
year. I think it's time to get them into the ground, and these various
containers are this year's solution to that problem. 


I'll let you know how they turn out.
