I think next year I am just going to grow food out of compost bins. I think I'll get a bunch of rubbermaid type containers and keep filling them with my composting veggies and grass etc, and just let it all grow. I'm thinking that it is mostly what makes sense for me and my issues I have with gardening!
This is my reasoning. My chickens wouldn't stop bothering my compost pile, so I scooped it all up and put it into a couple rubbermaid bins. I have so many melon plants and tomato plants that are so beautiful and growing so well! the rest of my garden is utterly pathetic. So, perhaps this may be a good choice for me next year. They're clearly loving it and thriving!
