    Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden:

    I got one Trug three years ago and ordered a second for this year. The directions for assembly aren't great but a lot of it is obvious. Having two people makes it much easier. We have the light color (as opposed to the black). Before doing any kind of planting we brushed the with vegetable oil. While the three-year old one has darkened, there is no sign of rot, mold or decay after weathering three years in sun, wind, rain, snow and ice. I expect the new one will weather the same way. I start my seeds directly in them with the greenhouse cover. Once the growing season winds down I cut back plants such as tomatoes and put the greenhouse cover back in. I also replant my lettuce in September. Last year by doing this I was able to pick tomatoes and lettuce till December. It is now early June and I'm already getting all my herbs, lettuces, green beans and broccoli to feed my husband and I as well as give a lot away. The only other modification I did was lash short poles to the cover frame to provide support for the tomatoes.

    Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden:

    If all the pieces would have fit perfectly together, leaving no little overhangs, I would have rated it 5 stars! I injured my back and had to have surgery, so I thought that I would not be able to have any garden at all this year, until I saw the Vegtrug in the catalog! So far, so good! My tomatoes and peppers LOVE it, and I started some herbs and lettuce at the shallower edges. I can get to everything easily and am hoping to have one of the best harvests I have ever had in my limited gardening area!

      Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden:

      I have been eyeing the VegTrug for years and finally bought 4 this year in two different sizes. Having grown my tomatoes in a bunch of small containers the past several years, I was thrilled to be able to consolidate them in just a few VegTrugs AND be able to add in a bunch of herbs and salad greens. So much less work to water them all now in the 4 VegTrugs than in 30+ pots--they hold the moisture far longer and I get lettuce as a bonus!

        I use the product to grow my own vegetables. Because I am older and have a hard time kneeling it is perfect for me to use. I live in Wyoming and the deer will eat all your vegetables if you don't have them out of the way so I have it placed on my deck so they (fingers crossed) can't get to it. I have not found anything adverse about it. I am very happy with the product.

          This is well made and I expect it to last for years. It's a perfect height for me and I would suggest it to others who enjoy gardening but are limited in their range of motion. I have a salad garden growing this summer for the first time in years. Next year, I hope to expand my gardening skills and I will likely buy another.

          Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden:

          Had doubts about material durability for Houston climate. Questioned use of untreated (and thin)fir for wet/humid conditions. Saw some comments by others about difficulty to assemble. Decided to go ahead and purchase anyway. Attractive design. Was difficult to assemble top part that I call the "skirt". Assembly would not sqaure up when put together as directed so one edge could not come together properly. I removed the "skirt" and and secured it together at four corners, then loosened up the panels in the "V", placing the "skirt" over them and then resecuring the panels to the frame. Worked. Specs indicated that material was treated with a food-safe water repelleant. I felt the material was too dry. Went and bought some Behr's water proofing and coated with my own waterproofing. I'm not overly concerned about food safety in my application. Color I picked (by accident, wanted clear) made the wood look like cedar. Really nice color. I gave it two coats inside and out. Wife wants new deck I'm building to be stained in same color. Sample coating of deck material matches very close. Only gave it three stars because of difficulty to assemble and, at this point, I don't know durability. It's relatively new. Time will tell. I'd recommend it to someone who doesn't mind taking a little extra time for the assembly process. It's priced OK for the quality of material.

              having 2 people to assemble is a must. mine ended up not being exactly square, but we were able to make it work. this is a pricey solution, but I am already seeing the benefits to having to NOT be bent over all day. my location is exposed to the wind, so i did drive some rebar along each leg to help anchor it during a storm.

              i would like to review it again after the season is over….
