Anyone use stocktanks for veggie containers?
I had a couple 100 gallon tanks split last winter. I tried to fix them, but it only worked on one of them. I just can't lean over in the regular garden much anymore because of my fibromyalgia and my funky legs. I have a bunch of 30-50 gallon Rubbermaid containers in the back yard that I've been experimenting with for growing veggies. But they are cracking and breaking after only a couple of years. So....I was thinking of using those 100 gallon tanks for veggies. That's a huge amount of soil.......but I might not fill it to the top to start with. I could probably get 4-6 tomato plants in one stocktank.
I could even put a picket fence around it so it wasn't so ugly.
Have any of you ever used the stocktanks for growing veggies? Just wish the ground wasn't so far down!
I read on the container gardening forum that some people use bales of straw in the bottom of really big containers. But I'm thinking that might get alot of mold.
Any ideas? Thanks!
