Building long containers for lettuce, spinach
The one reason why I have not gardened for the last several years is because we have this horrible thistle all around our property...as soon as we disturb the dirt, out they come.
So, I am looking for ideas on containers for lettuce, spinach, leeks, and carrots. I was thinking long, trough-type containers (kind of like planting them in a row, but in a pot)...is it okay to use plywood for this?
My daughters and I are really excited about trying to do this in the spring...we have our seeds already! (thanks to warm January days!). NONE of us want to deal with the thistle issue.
