One of my goals this week was to get my fall planters done. My summer flowers were all dead from lack of watering these past few weeks. My porch was a sight!!
I usually do two planters with large mums in them. I decided to make my own planters this year. I love all the fall plants! Mums, Kale, Cabbage, Millet (just learned what that was today!)
I bought a little bit of everything and got to work.
This planters has mums, millet, cabbage, and little ornamental peppers. Love those!! I bought the planter containers years ago at Walmart. They have held up really well and are out all year long.
Here is a close up of the pepper plant. I love the color they add!
This is the millet. It came in a large pot and I separated it and just added a small section to each planter. It added the height the planters needed.
I think the cabbage plants are so cute. I could only find really large ones at first and wanted a smaller accent size. Home Depot had these cute little ones.
Here is another planter I did, I was having fun!
I still need to add corn stalks and pumpkins. But for now this looks so much better than the dried up annuals I had in those pots!
I had a few plants left over so I put them in one of the empty pots and put it on our deck.
The trees are changing, it is sunny & cool, and just so beautiful here in the Midwest! I love this time of year!
