I'm going to buy 200 feet of Peas-trough!

I've wanted to do this for a number of years -- I think it will make pea cultivation SO much easier for me -- I have problems with good germination outdoors due to weather and animals, and when I start them in the greenhouse, there is a narrow window of opportunity between too small to transplant and too big to transplant without them being a tangled mess.

I think this would be a great way to go. Clever whoever thought of it in the first place.

I for the life of me don't know why gardenweb doesn't have the pop-up at the bottom of the form to post a link when starting a thread. Who knows?

Anyway, here's a link with a picture or two. Clever folks.

At about $5 per 10 foot section of vinyl gutter, that's a great idea!

Yup, $5.23 for 10 foot section of vinyl gutter at both Lowe's and Home Depot on my daily route home from work. I figure it's a good investment, because if I wash it out after use and store it in my garage away from light, it should last for many years.
