The VegTrug is Here!

The VegTrug is perfect for anyone interested in growing veggies without going to the trouble of creating a complete garden bed. My husband put this baby together in less than an hour.

“I don’t know why, but the song ‘Away in a Manger’ kept playing in my head,” he told me after he’d finished.

Well, it DOES kind of look like a manger (although Poppy didn’t find it that comfortable). But it’s because the VegTrug is designed to offer ample root space for things like potatoes, carrots and beets. It comes with a liner especially fitted to assure the soil stays put, and at the same time allowing for excellent drainage.

This size of VegTrug measures 71 inches long by 31 inches high and 30 inches deep. It holds 380 quarts of soil. While the nearly $300 price tag puts this item into the “investment” category, it pays for itself in the amount of vegetables it grows in just one season. I’ll be growing lettuce, beets and Roma bush beans along with basil and nasturtium.
I haven't worked out exactly where I'll put it, but I'll have to decide before it's filled with all of that soil.
I’ve also ordered the greenhouse and insect covers so I can get started as soon as they arrive.

Interesting. I'll be watching to see this works out for you.
