 This year, do to ill health, I am not able to get out the tiller (except for the mantis)and work my both my big gardens.  i have decided to try the bag garden in place of one of them.  I have always used the "square foot garden" method.  So I am hoping this is just another version.  Our winter(WV) here was extremely warm so the soil is really not up to a lot of work this year anyhow.  i have already planted 10 bags full of lettuce, peas and collards.  made a chicken wire tepee over them so the chickens won't decided to scratch lol.  i will be planting more today.  has anyone ever grown in the bags your soil came in?  Any hints?

I haven't tried this method, but it would sure be great for someone that can't get out to work the ground, like you, or someone that doesn't have a lot of time or space.
