A few years ago, we had all these tires lying around. My husband decided that he would put four of them along the garden and plant cucumbers in them. I didn’t want to do it! I told him it would look like hillbillies lived here!! Thus the name hillbilly tires!

We put plastic down, put the tires on top and filled them with dirt. We mulched all around them and planted the cucumbers.

It was great! You could find the cucumbers easily and had very little weeding to do.

We grew cucumbers in there for 2 or 3 years. Then he decided he didn’t want them in there any more. Now I grow grape tomatoes in them.

The pictures are of the hillbilly tires with my grape tomatoes. I took some advice from an article on Bubblews and have been putting coffee on them. They look pretty good! Except for the weeds!
