Is a hay wagon a container?

Hi, I'm 65 years young, have an 11 year old son, that my wife and I adopted from Guatemala when he was a baby. We have a 8' x 14' wagon with a flat hay rack. My son, David, and I want to try to put a raised garden on this wagon next spring. I'm looking for thoughts on feasibility, drainage, depth of soil, types of soil, etc.
If this is the right forum to ask these questions, wonderful, if not could someone besides my wife tell me where to go?


I posted this in vegetable and was advised that this may be a better forum for my questions.

Interesting thought....your planting medium is very critical. It must be free draining, and not contain dirt (soil). This is key. Depending on what you plant, you can get away with 14-24 inches of depth. Drainage holes...the more the better. Spend some time scanning past posts here on potting mixes.

To answer your question, yes it is a container. Anything with a bottom when used for growing plants, is container gardening, and all the rules apply. Al
