Seems like a waste of real estate (center of the barrel). I seem to recall seeing pictures of strawberry "towers" using wide pvc pipe. Not sure which forum they were on.

I am growing in one now on the same idea.

I will let you know how they do. I think that I have to rotate it many times to let the sun hit them all evenly.

Mike do you have anything in the center to displace some of the soil and maybe to facilitate watering?
