Tell us about yourself!
We actually have a separate group of straw bales already set up! The problem is that they did great for certain vegetables, but others (cabbage, carrots, basil, etc.) really struggled in the straw bales. So we're trying the planters for those.
I hadn't, but I love the idea!
Wow, fantastic feedback. All great suggestions!
You're right, they're not cheap. If I had planned it out better, I would have set up something on If This Then That (IFTTT) to watch Craigslist for any mention of feed troughs, watering troughs, stock tanks, etc. If I had been more patient, I bet I could have saved a lot of money.
