Plastic Barrel Projects Anyone?

Found some 55 gallon plastic barrels on Craigslist for a great price! 6 barrels @ $25 a piece. I’m looking to do some projects like the wicking/air pruning project below…some rain barrels and I don’t know what else….maybe giving 2 away to a family member.

Anyone with some experience on cleaning these type barrels out (with only 2 holes), let me know! šŸ˜‰

If you have any other cool projects, let me know!
