Adventures in Container Gardening

This spring, I've been helping my apartment-dwelling sister create a functional garden on her deck.  She'd found some over-the-railing deck planters and was hoping to use them (along with an assortment of smaller pots) to grow veggies, herbs, and flowers.

Last night, as she was preparing to buy more of the planters, I noticed the fine print on a sticker:

Not for food use.

WTF? 
Who the hell buys a planter meant for a small garden and grows only ornamental plants?

This means my sister will have to move all of her existing plants: strawberries, lettuce, thyme, lemon balm, rosemary, and peppers.  She's also ready to plant bush cucumbers, lavender, and other herbs and is scrambling to find food-safe pots at an affordable price.
