So Mark Shepard gave me this idea at an Acres USA conference. Cut the bottom out of your 5Gal bucket replace with 1/2x1/2" hardware cloth, fill with your choice of growing mixture (I used 1 part each of peat moss, perlite and local "soil").
Plant your nut seeds cover with hardware cloth, bury the bucked up to the lip then cover with mulch until spring. Sorry no before photos....
