Line with parchment paper if you're scared of munching some lead. It'll look like a weed barrier and help keep some of the "soil" in.

Any worry about lead poisoning with those little pots?

author

There's some debate about it, but from what I've heard most often is that most unglazed terra-cotta products are lead-free.

author

Just to clarify that statement, the biggest concern about using pots or really any ceramic product with food is that the glaze often uses lead. As these pots are un-glazed, they are unlikely to contain lead.
