Wow - nice rig!

Will a grow bag go inside the Menard's buckets with the large holes? What size holes? What did you use to cut them?

I miss Menards and Fleet Farm! As hard as it must be to wait, it's already stinking hot in the south and I've lost about 5% of my plants to disease. Never lost one in Wisconsin that I can remember.

don't know about the grow bags, some use walmart bags, i sewed mine own up from landscape fabric, . the holes are 3 inch , used a 3 inch hole saw, and if you want to save wear and tear on your wrist, run the drill in reverse. trust me it works. ---tom

It's Dennis,isn't it?

Please remember that N0 partisan political names are allowed at Tville.

So here's a gentle warning to please not do it again. And I'm sure you also remember that no discussions of religion are allowed here either.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation .

I don't either. I was referring to a period of time. Is that confusing?

That's a dog?? It looks like the back end of a horse. False foreshortening, I guess.

Anyway, nice setup.

yah a horse that's as big as a 5 gallon bucket! a 10 year old chocolate lab that has had a knee replacement and the other one is torn, sorry she looks so big, don't let her run too much so she needs another surgery at $2,500 , if I do she limps around for days. I think she still might like you tho.---tom

Our chocolate had ACL surgery on both knees--one at 8 years old and the other at 9. She was running, swimming, jumping, and basically acting like a Lab until Cushing's disease slowed her down at the age of 15. The surgeries were money well spent.

I thought that it was a horse too which is kind of funny.

Plants look nice though.
