Worth, that's why have been reading every post in your thread. I talked to Jan about it. If your system works, we could buy white 5 gallon buckets, perlite/vermiculite, and the soil mix spread out over the rest of this year. I would also change the raised beds by removing the infected soil and rebuilding the 2 x 12 frames to include a solid bottom and frame it to where the buckets cannot turn over. The land there isn't level so drainage isn't a problem. I would put in weep holes on the lower end. My idea would hold 11 plants.
