Thanks for posting you feed bag garden. I have 2 horses so I have a steady supply of feed bags and now I have an idea on how to re-use some of them :)

You melted the holes with the soldering iron? Clever! I’m planning on doing my next round of potatoes in bags too. I’ve seen a few people doing it lately and I feel like I’m missing out =)

I just showed Papa your bag gardening we are spinning with Ideas. We are going to make a roof frame and hang them from it and plant Tomatoes, Cucumbers and who knows what else no weeding I am ready. I can set up a drip Irrigation that goes into each bag whala..
Thanks Halhurst..

After a season’s trial I learned a couple things: Most tomatoes need a cubic foot of soil to do well, and these and other bags dry out on the outside quickly, so use extra organic material for better water absorption, and try to limit evaporation from the sides. I ended up double-bagging, and the extra layer helped.
