First time container gardening
Having a tiny postage stamp back yard, I've wanted to try container gardening. I have a few pots, but I'm on a budget.
Someone left a big plastic bucket out for garbage collecting. The bucket reads "Paint Latex Primer Undercoater - white" with about an inch of liquid left.
I spilled it out, but there's still the thick remnants on the bucket. Can I just let it dry, cut some drainage holes, fill it with dirt, and use it as a pot? Or do I have to wash it out first? Will the dried paint harm the plant I put in?
