Ina, when I used to teach container gardening classes we'd often be 
discussing those large wooden half whiskey barrel containers. My 
suggestion was to use aluminum soda containers, opening side down. One 
or even two layers, with second layer - if any - offset from the lower 
layer. Then cover the cans with water permeable non-woven landscape 
fabric. Cut somewhat oversize, so that the fabric can be brought up 
against the side of the container for a few inches.

Judy in sunny New Jersey where we've gone from night temperatures in the 
teens Fahrenheit into another heat wave. High 50s Fahrenheit predicted 
for today and the next two. Very peculiar weather this year.
