Gregory, my apologies if you feel slighted in my response to Undustrial - which was a direct reply to his question and concerns that he has expressed.

Sustainability as I have come to realize in my experiences is much more than growing gardens. Although it is an integral part of it, there are far more complex and interconnected issues that one needs to understand.

One issue that obviously comes to mind now that you have shared your experience (pictures) here, is a note of caution by another avid gardener below, which may be worth investigating further:

"I no longer use PVC in any of my boxes. PVCs have been demonstrated to leach plasticizers and harmful chemicals, including endocrine disruptors. There are plenty of alternatives, so there's no good reason to use PVC and risk putting these chemicals in your homegrown fruits and vegetables."
