Default My First Year Hop Planters

What do you think?

I used recycle bins & 1/2 inch conduit with twine.

Simple and effective. I did the same thing but built planters out of palates I got free from Sears. As I'm sure someone will mention you'll have to give them a permanent home in a couple years.

That's very cool looking, I just started my first set this year, maybe I'll attempt something similar. What'd that end up costing?

For the soil, twine, & conduit. Under $30 each.
