Hi, it's the old fart again, but my dogs love me :)

I currently use three concrete wash troughs for growing veggies in dirt.

Question is are they safe to use for AP. They are pretty old (like me).

If they are ok that would be fantastic.

I must say this is a great site, "this is a great site". Thanks for the help so far it is greatly appreciated.


(Think I'm getting an IBC for fathers day) woohooo :cheers:

The concrete tubs can affect your PH over time. maybe you could give them a cote of pond paint or something like that to seal them up. if it becomes an issue.

I've got some down here Bear if you want some :wave:

No mate due to budget constraints (the missus) its the Gretch Electromatic with a Bigsby and a Marshal 50W

I alternate between that and a cherry les Paul Std. Epiphone, depending on what sort of a racket I feel like making at the time. :funny1:
