While the VegTrug isn't quite what I mean when I say I could eat a trough of food, put some tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and jalapenos in this urban planter, and I may still be down for some deconstructed salsa by the vat. Especially if I have a case of Juanita's Crack Chips next to it.

The VegTrug is a self-contained raised vegetable (and fruit, depending on the fruit) garden suitable for small backyards, large balconies, back decks, or anywhere you don't have the space or grass to cultivate decent grub in the ground. The VegTrug shown here is the company's Medium size, able to hold 7 x 60L bags of compost. It's 71" long x 31" wide x 30" tall, the latter for a waist-level work height that also makes the planter a nice option for the elderly, wheelchair users, or anyone who doesn't want to spend hours bent over and kneeling.
