Gwennifer, Sorry for late reply, I have been camping.

Little Baja, 1510 E Burnside, Portland,Oregon, 503-236-8834 (Google them)

Al's Garden Center in Sherwood, Woodburn and Gresham
Portland Nursery in Portland (two locations)
Dennis' 7 Dees in Portland (two locations)

Planters can be expensive so I listed them with least expensive on the top to most expensive at the bottom of the list. All of them can be googled for exact locations and phone numbers. I hope this helps.

I get my planters at Rite Aid.

They are currently on sale for 50% off (which is why I get them at Rite Aid as they have annual 50% off sales on garden supplies) in my town....don't know if that is true for other Rite Aid stores in the region......

Thanks for the replies HappyCamper and Daniel. I need half a day with the truck and no kids so I can check some of these places out. That's not going to happen, but I can dream...

dreamcatcher, I don't know why our PNW forum goes so dead here from time to time. You might try posting your question about your watermelon and banana squash in the general SFG forum? I see people in other parts of the country talking squash and melons all the time, but here not so much. But you'll need to be more specific about what you're needing. Are they not currently flourishing? And what makes you say so? I'm coveting your lettuces. Mine are still hardly more than sprouts.
