Nice setup HD.  I made some 3 x 7 garden boxes about 3 years ago and they are pretty cool but to not have to bend over would really be nice.  So is that regular dirt in those?  Just wondering about the weight issue.  I showed them to the wife now she wants them.  So do I.

Went out and did some weeding, that was way over rated vs drinking beer and watching a fire.

Looks like I'm not going to retire on the radish crop this year. Nice top growth but not much underneath. Oh well, the sheep will enjoy them. Have to bank on a bumper zucchini crop I guess... :confused:

when I first plant my tomatoes, cabbage and pepper plants I put the old metal 3 lb coffee cans around them to assist in watering them as well as to help protect them.


today I took them all off, I definitely think this intense heat is affecting the plants. picking up those cans as well as rocks in the garden they were really warm.

dang its ugly outside.
