On the way to my plots the other day I discovered another spot, totally secure, close by, and I can do pretty much whatever I want with it. However, there's so many roots and vines in the ground I can't dig holes. So I gotta use containers. I want bigger than 5 gal buckets, more like 10.. The way I see it I can either build boxes out of wood- but then I'm in the woods with cordless tools, a whole production..oooorr.. I have a roll of trim metal(white), 3' WIDE X 100'. I could cut and roll up pieces, making tubes measuring 2' diameter x 3' tall. Sink those 6" or so in the ground and fill them with my soil.paint the outside and rim flat green, and I'm good , right? My question is: can I use painted metal as container?
