if anyone lives near a local garage then go and ask them for old tyres, they have to pay to have them taken away and normally will more than willingly give them away for free, they are great for growing potatoes, carrots and parsnips in because you can pile them as high as you like - within reason and they give the really long rooted veg plenty of space to grow
A friend of ours used them to make a makeshift septic tank, not quite sure how successful it was in reality but it worked for the year he was living in his little cabin
That's a brilliant idea, Helen.
Our friend grows potatoes in a big flowerpot by adding a few centimetres of soil once a week to raise the soil level on a par with the sprouting shoots. I bet that tyres are a cheaper and simpler option. We will definitely try this next year.
Never knowingly underfed
