      Here is your NEC code reference.

      334.12 (B)(4) Uses Not Permitted.
      Where exposed or subject to excessive moisture or
      dampness.

      Buried conduits are "WET" locations are therefore a direct violation.

        To add my nickels worth, John and Andy have given you the code compliant way to wire the shed, but something to think about, an unheated shed with a freezer is asking for trouble.

        As the outside ambient emp drops, so does the ability for the condensor to disapate the heat.
        You may be shortening the life of the freezer.

          I know, but I lack space. The layout of my house looks great upon walking in, until you look for a place to hang a coat, or put groceries.
          No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

            Lets see you got advice from an engineer, a master electrician, some other electricians, AND a truck driver. No offense but if we were talking trucks I know who I would listen to, but this is about electricity.

            If the pipe is in the ground it has water in it ALWAYS, its called condensation! Romex is not meant for wet locations, haven't done residential in awhile but it usually has paper filler, pretty obvious, why its not allowed.

                    Not big enough unfortunately, I've got the electric on hold for the moment since now we're kicking around adding a greenhouse right next to the shed. so i'll have to have electric for fans and heat. I'll likely wait until i'm ready to do that and drag a real electrician down from Springfield to do it.

                    The wife decided that the greenhouse needed to go in <.<
