Weird container advice
Weird container is a couple of large legal size filing cabinets I found really cheap in a junk yard. Hadn't even thought about making them SWC until I found this forum and now I'm slightly obsessed with trying to do it and am trying to modify the instructions for the Earth Tainer to suit this larger format.
I'm thinking of using a pondliner cut to fit the lower 8-12" portion of the file case - (which has its drawers removed and is lying on its back, drawer openings skyward), cutting some plastic buckets down to make a support for the grid/separator, that I'm considering creating from that plastic trellis material covered with a landscape fabric to keep the soil above and then pond plant containers to hold the soil wicks.
Am I crazy? Are there better ideas? I love the idea of reusing these file cabinets. Here is where the idea came from:
Wondering if the cabinet will be too deep to allow sufficient wicking action?
BTW, thanks to this forum for the info on preventing blossom end rot on container grown tomatoes!!
