I have been given starts of peppermint, chocolate mint, and lemon balm. These are all invasive and can quickly get out of control so I thought I would plant them in containers. I had thought about building planters for them to set in my herb garden area I am crrateing. 

I was talking with my folks about some other container I was looking for. They mentioned having empty horse protein slick tubs. The tubs were too big for what I originally thought to use them for, but they are a good depth for my herbs. 

I have drilled a few drainage holes in the bottom and planted my lemon balm first. I think they are going to work perfectly! I’m already looking forward to having them come back fuller next year.
