Using 1/2 whiskey barrels
I have 4 of these that are empty and I'd sure love to use them to plant some more squash. In one area, I could easily plant several in one and then just let them trail over. Another area (next to my garden, but closer to the lawn, I'd have to keep things more contained so that DH could still mow the lawn without too many obstacles (so maybe in those 2 a few bush squash?
I'd like to do zuchinni in the trailing ones and yellow straight neck in the 2 by the garden.
MY QUESTION: Do you think I could get 2 in each of the one's by the garden? I could plant them at the outter sides opposite each other to allow them to grow up and somewhat over but hopefully far enough away from each other so that they have space to do their thing?
It would seem like too big of a container to house just one plant...so I"m hoping that I can squeeze them in?
Any thoughts? personal experience?
