I don't have a plot of land but I have a couple pots. They do the trick. Last year I used an old trash can.

(I never remember which end is up.)

I remember us talking about this last year. My opinion was that it didn't matter.

I think you should find an old bath tub to use.

The inulin instead of starch, yes, good for controlling blood glucose. But...

"which way soever they be dressed and eaten, they stir and cause a filthy loathsome stinking wind within the body, thereby causing the belly to be pained and tormented, and are a meat more fit for swine than men." - Wikipedia
