Can someone tell me where to purchase the compost socks? I want large quantities.

I have raised garden beds which are nothing more than bigger containers for composted material. Each year I put 6 to 8 inches of fresh composted material that comes from city yard waste in my beds. This last year when other's gardens were infested with bugs and disease, my crops were not affected.

Have a great garden sock day.

I've used a modified version of this here in the desert southwest. It works well, reduces water requirements and allows me to custom build soil to my needs. I have used a high-percentage of compost with water-holding additives and rock dust mixed in with very good results. Last year we filled nearly 5 dozen socks made from the legs of blue jeans that we recycled from local thrift stores. Cut the legs off, sew the cuff shut, fill the bag and staple the open end closed. Add drip irrigation, cut strategically placed holes for the plants and you're in business.

I love this idea! Anything that makes growing food accessible to any climate is great.

Wow, I bet in time they will figure out a way to grow anything in this sock method, In the right climate you grow a tree were the soil won't hold water.
