      that's awesome. I prefer metal, although right now it's holding my fresh veggies from my garden, so I am using my plastic ones, but since they are reusable and I plan to use them until they disintegrate, I think it will be okay. How is everything going otherwise? Have you made great strides, or small baby steps? Every small baby step counts.
