My new container garden in back yard
I have a big "regular" garden, but I absolutely hate leaning over to deal with things. Most of my big garden is now a vertical garden.
Anyhow.......I've tried totes to grow things in, in the back yard and they didn't work out so well. But I decided to try something a little different, and raise it up.
These are Behlen Country food-grade 70 gallon poly stock tanks. I put about 12-15 holes (1") in the bottom, lined the bottoms with 1/2" hardware cloth and filled them with home-grown compost.
The one in back is up on bales of straw. We'll see how long those bales hole up.
The one in front is on cement blocks and 2"x6" boards.
I'm growing broccoli, lettuces, spinach, carrots, kale, collards, and will soon plant onions.
The 5 gallon food-grade Tractor Supply bucket has a cherry tomato plant in it.
I'm excited about having some food so close to the back door.........and higher off the ground!
