Painting My New Hanging Baskets

A fun gardening project is underway at the farm.

I wanted to plant an unusual variety of perennials in hanging baskets to decorate my large front porch this summer. Many of my hanging plants, including some of my Staghorn ferns, had outgrown their containers, and were ready to be replanted.

We found a wonderful source for hanging baskets at Kinsman Company, a family owned business in eastern Pennsylvania. Kinsman offers a wide assortment of heavy-duty hanging baskets in different sizes and shapes, inspired by traditional hanging planters made in England. Once they arrived, they were painted gray to match the exterior of my home.

Here are some photos of this project's first phase - enjoy.
