The good neighbors (McKenna/Elmore) scored a couple hundred feed tubs destined to live again as planters...I got 24 for free. That brings me up to 39 total - I think that ought to be enough for year one of growing tests.
Blew two fuses on the 50 amp battery charger that I use with my generator on cloudy days. Not sure what caused the malfunction but its working again. That little zip lock bag with replacement fuses that I taped next to the charger 3 years ago finally came in handy. Sure feels good to be prepared.
Got more plants in the mail today - a dwarf fig and a coffee plant to experiment with.
