I don’t see any reason it wouldn’t work. You won’t get more than a season, maybe two out of those buckets before the sun makes them brittle.

May I ask why you wouldnt build a bed out of 2x12s on the ground. The roots could grow into the native soil and have much more room. I guess you’d still be kneeling and bending over.

Why not get an actual raised bed instead of the DIY bucket thing? You can either buy a kit or, if you’re handy at building things, buy some cedar planks and slap something together.
