The little winery I do some work for gets grape juice in those 55 gallon drums, unfortunately they are blue and completely opaque but still useful for many things, I have a large collection of them in the junk stuff piles out back. A wall of multi-flora rose, wild grapes and Japanese honeysuckle keeps it all nicely out of sight.
Nothing ruins a neighborhood like paved roads and water lines.

Has anyone made wicking boxes out of styrofoam boxes? The sort that fish gets shipped in? Some of them are very shallow, so wondering about doubling them up and the best way to glue them together. I have one set up for spinach, single box, mostly because it really needed to be planted and boxes are the only viable option for me ATM. But I want to do about 30 of them, and would like to know if I'm on the right track.

Wood glue doesn't offer any encouragement on the labels, so I've been reluctant to try it. I have heard so many stories of people trying to glue this stuff only to see it melt in a cloud of noxious gasses that I've been looking for something that claims to do the job. I have some old wood glue, may try it on some scraps and see what happens. Thanks.
That four drawer file was one heavy sucker; took three of us to get it into the truck, on its side; I took it to the farm and was able to push it out so it landed upright. Now I just need to build a shed and get it in, preferably before the rainy season. It's OK; it'll go in the same shed as the guts of the solar system and the freezer.
