Cardboard Boxes as raised beds
I posted this in the container gardening section, but since I am using the square foot garden method I thought I would post it here also.
I had a co-worker tell me the other day that he used cardboard boxes last year for his tomatoes and other veggies. He said that they drained water very well, held moisture well, and when the growing season was done the boxes were pretty much done. You could just scoop the boxes, with your compost into your compost pile until the next season.
I was just wondering what everyone here thought of this. I would use them for tomatoes, peppers, maybe watermelon, okra, zuchinni, all the vining stuff to save my other boxes for the stuff that don't vine.
