I wrap five gallon buckets with cedar strips I make with my bandsaw. If the buckets were left to the sun, they'd be brittle and dead in a couple years. Four years in, with the cedar as a shield, they're cute, going strong and not in a landfill somewhere.

2) My mission with these forums to gather knowledge about stuff far beyond organic. I don't want to publish discussions on GMOs, herbicides or petroleum fertilizers - that's for other forums. The use of tires is something that might be considered organic, therefore I will allow it. but just barely. And I do want the resulting discussion to strongly favor NOT using tires.
3) When I first started gardening, I really sucked at it. But I quickly learned that I needed more soil. And one of the things I did was use a big tractor tire and fill it with soil. It worked awesome: the rhubarb planted in it was HUGE! It was about a year later that I started to feel uneasy about the tire and the potential toxins. And a year after that that I started making plans to get rid of the tire. And now I am adamantly against the idea of using tires in gardening. Therefore, i cannot fault this path - I've done the same thing. And I hope that folks coming to this site and reading this thread will come to the conclusion of not using tires in their stuff - thus avoided my past errors.
