More musing...

I will have to post more about the "wallapini igloo" concept and whether I can move barrels of compost in and out of one. I tried last year but the barrel sat in it all year until finally before winter I did remove the barrel (after first removing the compost that was still in it). The problem is there is no space for a barrel except in the center, and then its in such a low awkward spot that it just isnt convenient to move it. A larger igloo-wallipini would be too much work for one person? But maybe not. Everything from wind to snow to weeding gets harder the bigger the thing is. But of course if its going to contain tropical trees then those would probably need a bigger design.

Bit by bit, I will try to make it happen. If the barrels could be moved around, moved out of the way for weeding and planting and harvesting. And the trunks and branches of any trees were also out of the way, much as possible...

Maybe four small 15x 15ft "wallapini igloos" each with one tree inside, covered by an over-arching 30x30 ft larger greenouse structure.
