Galvanized Stock Tank Veggie Garden

We planted a veggie garden for a client this year using three 10 foot long galvanized stock tanks. These containers are placed on an irrigation drip line to help with the watering needs and are placed in a gravel bed for easy harvesting. Will make a trip out to get photos of the containers full planted.

I am looking for 10' tanks and I'm having a really hard time finding them. Would you mind sharing your lead?

Hello Shannon,
You posted a question on my blog about a 10 foot stock tank. I found a Behlen country tank that was 3x2x10 and then confirmed local suppliers that carried the tanks. I called to order, but Behlen is from the west coast so there was a min. order requirement, but the supplier was able to recommend another manufacturer. I think the final order was a Tarter (which I use at home is great quality). Here is a link the the behlen -

and information on Tarter –

I hope this helps!
