For me, Home Depot is quicker delivery; besides, I already give Amazon too much business. Smilie
I have several of these...I grow tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, in my small NYC backyard.

I built one of these a few years ago out of a cedar raised garden bed. I made it because although the setup was intensive, it allowed me to water my plants once a week in the middle of an Arizona summer and still be a successful gardener. I wanted a garden that took the least amount of effort to care for and produced a max amount of vegetables. I literally left my garden hose in the tube and turned on the water once a week.

There were video's online back then about how you could build these out of plastic storage tubs. Using plastic tubs would have been much cheaper than going with cedar, but my main concern was that the plastic would heat up in the sun and leech into my vegetables/fruits. That being said, even with a cedar build I had to use plastic drain pipes and landscape fabric at the bottom of the planter so I may have been getting leeching anyway.

I'm also not sure about the soil recommendation here. They say to use potting mix for this, but I ended up blending my own soil of 4 parts vermiculite, 2 parts peat, and 1 part sand so the roots of your plants can leech up the water more easily. Just my thoughts on it. These were the instructions I used if anyone is interested:

That being said, this seems way easier to do than building it the way I did. I'm going to give this one a shot and see how it works.

It looks like both are out of stock though.

These work great. I have been using one for three years and my tomatoes have consistently grown beautifully each year. Highly recommend.

These are *fantastic* and I say that as someone who can't keep any type of plant alive aside from the ones I don't want. If you follow the directions and plant your seeds, you will have blooming plants soon enough. I even tried to kill off my tomato plants (from literally 2 seeds) to try a different strain and she's still going...

Also GREAT for fresh catnip!

Could anyone comment on how many full size (say....6-7 feet) tomato plants this container can reasonably support?

It seems a little complicated, what is the benefit vs just a regular raised bed (wooden square with dirt)? We've never had weeds grow in a raised bed.
