Oh, and just to make it clear... I brought all the supplies home and showed the blog post to my husband and *HE* did all the labor. He doesn't mind this sort of "honey-do". Sweet man.
I found this tutorial and couldn't resist. Ugh! So clever! I made a minor change to it and was not disappointed. Basically all that this is is a piece of five or six foot rebar pounded about two feet in the ground and then terra cotta pots threaded onto it. Brilliant! Yes?! I even found the pots in a chocolate color to make it just a little more "mine".
