Default Will it work?

Running out of room in my backyard and wifey wants to plant a garden. Thinking about a feed trough with drain holes drilled in bottom and fill with soil. Can move with 4 wheeler or lawn mower and drag to curb when her gardening itch is over. 27"x10'x18"

Ray you may run into trouble with tall plants(maters) that need support. Its not gona be deep enough for you to stake them solidly. Can always run some heavy wire around the outside to support the plants though.

I'm thinking about securing cages through the bottom, drill holes and wrap end of cages (twist). Not sure how thick that plastic is though.
