Cool thread idea… I have a little veggie patch / herb garden that I have been growing stuff in for a few years. Awesome for basil so you can make your own pesto’s and fresh tomato sauces for pasta.

i had some old tyre’s laying around , and i remember my dad use to grow potatoes in them , each time a new shoot comes up just add another tyre and add more dirt , end result is you get a heap of potatoes in a small amount of space =]
