Hosta Kettle

Forlorn and rusting, the Weber Smokey Joe sat in the garage for nigh onto two years. This summer I looked at that lovely bowl of a BBQ grill and said, "What shall we do with you?"

The answer? Plant it with baby hostas. Since there were a ton of little hosta plants sitting around my sunroom and in pots scattered throughout the garden beds, it was an easy task to plant this bowl of hostas.

While the roots take hold, I have the hosta kettle near an entrance door so I can water it easily. Soon it will be moved to a shady location where it can spend a leisurely fall. I'll bring it into the sunroom for the winter and, just maybe, there will be a lovely porch pot for next year's enjoyment.
