LOL- if we did that, my daughter would demand a golf cart, bikes would be properly put in the garage and my fifth wheel would have negative pin weight with the way we pack!

Yeah, but with a golf cart you can pull a small trailer with your garden planted on it. No need to lift anything.

Double-towing is always an option :

My brother gave me a pull behind trailer, 12ft long, and I turned it into a mobile greenhouse. Georgia has the strictest limits on size and height of home made trailers and using their guidelines you can pretty much have anything you want to carry with you if you put in the time and effort to just build it yourself. Using the mobile garden, I grow most of my family's food. I canned the veggies and, at 13 ft tall, I even have a banana tree, and coffee tree plants along with tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, potatoes, squash, lettuce, broccoli , okra, green beans, peas, onions, eggplants, corn, watermelons, and cantaloupes. Its wonderful to be able to grow my own food and can the veggies and fruits.

Ok, I assume I could grow tomatoes in a 5gallon bucket or it looks like someone is growing them in reusable shopping bags:


Seems like weight would be a little easier to manage this way. 1 bucket/bag to 1 plant. Unless I put them in the shower, it still doesn't help me protect them from the wind for travel. And, there doesn't seem to be anyway of protecting them from movement unless I go for the criss-cross of twine like the bumper-garden guy.

Personally, I love this idea. Mine will ride in the shower during travel and they would be easy to put out at the campsite.

to make pots/bags etc. lighter use lightweight potting soil and mix in Styrofoam beads. I'm tempted to try packing peanuts myself but haven't yet. You may need to give them a drink twice a day but heck your just sitting around with nothing to do anyways right?

I wish! I work fulltime from the camper while we're on the road. But I'll look I to using styrofoam anyway!
