Georgia, I can not take credit for this idea at all! The linked article is by an Iowa woman who now lives in Alaska. I'm just as impressed as you are!

Look what I did this weekend at my ghetto fabulous raingutter farm! Turns out there was a discarded rain gutter just waiting to be transformed. I've placed my transplanted seedlings into the old raingutter, and will start planting right into once there is no more chance of cold weather. I'll keep posting photos as the project evolves.
