How can I use woven plastic feed bags (dog food, bird seed, etc) to make grow bags for vegetables? Answered

HI, Could someone give me detailed instructions (from start to finish) on how to use the woven plastic feed bags to grow tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, cucumbers, squash, etc?  The bag sizes vary from 10 pound to 50 pound capacities. Thanks everyone.

Fill with compost or rich soil - i.e. soil with a good amount of organic matter mixed in.

Stand upright - not flat - This gives the roots some depth to use and plant 1 or 2 plants per bag.

Water well in dry weather and enjoy.
