water buts

if this went out before im sorry as im not so good on the pc so ill try again,,up the allottment we are useing large 40/50 gallon water buts some of us have joined them together with B/Q but connectors about £7 we get the water buts from local dairy farmers who generaly are glad to give them away as the are non retunable,they are used to disifect the milking apperatus so are nice and clean to use,some farmers charge a couple of quid but thats a lot cheaper than B/Q you might haveseen them at fairs being used for rubbish bins they are big and blue, we also cut them inhalf and put rope handles each side which make exellent rubish bins in the garden or we groe spuds ,tommies or anything you want and they work, so i hope this is usefull  good luck everyoneand at last here in Wales we have some sunshine
