Popcorn in a Picket Planter

From our provider: FamilyFun

If your idea of the perfect garden is a drift of lush greenery nestled inside a picket fence, you don't need to wait till summer to get it. This picket planter with popcorn plants is as easy to make as popcorn itself.

Prep Time: About 2 to 3 hours
What you need:
 Wooden clementine box
Wooden clothespins
Wooden beads
Glue
Latex semigloss wall paint
Plastic seedling trays
Potting soil
Popcorn kernels
Seasons: Year round
Materials: clothespin, paints
Instructions:
1.The planter's base is a wooden clementine box. We glued a line of wooden clothespins to the top edge, and wooden beads atop the corner posts and the adjacent clothespins.
2.Once the glue was dry, we gave the planter two coats of paint (we used latex semigloss wall paint).
3.We set plastic seedling trays--easily removed for watering--inside the box and filled each to an inch from the top with potting soil.
4.We then sprinkled on popcorn kernels (not the microwave kind) and covered them with another half inch of soil.
5.We kept the soil moist, and our corn was up in about a week. The greenery lasted for several weeks more.
