Growing Herbs in Containers

Something like this is what I have in mind for the big metal tub I picked up over the weekend. I've always loved planting things in containers, as they get less weeds, I don't have to worry about moles destroying the roots and if I add a little fence around the edge, it should keep the rabbits out too. In recent years, the local deer population has made a regular habit of visiting my front yard as well, so luckily I have a fenced-in backyard I can start my new herb garden in. I haven't had a lot of luck growing herbs/veggies in the past, but I'd like to give it another go. Found a helpful article here on growing herbs in containers. Wish me luck!
