Walmart. The smaller one I am using takes 41 cups of soil (~2.5 gallons) and the larger is either 4 or 5 gallons. I really wanted to make 5 gallon buckets but trying to get free buckets from restaurants/stores was stressing me out so I bought these instead (cheap and pretty looking). The zucchini, eggplant (large pot), jalapeno (small pot), peas (small) are doing OK in their respective planters, but the larger pot is definitely too small for the early girl tomato.

here, which makes me feel better about using it because I think she has an amazing rooftop garden out in Brooklyn.
