Fresh drip tape, fertilizer, and plastic mulch. Tomorrow the rows will have bark paths and the T- posts will be driven in.

Looking good! Why did you remove your T posts only to put them back?

Removing them makes laying the plastic a whole lot easier and cleaner. I only have to pound in 50 or 60 today

Laid the isle bark, pounded in the t-posts, planted a few onions, and finished up the row of strawberries.

Got my kiddos self watering container garden going. They picked Cheddar cauliflower, Romanesco, Arugala, and Pak Choy starts. They also planted seeds for Carrots, Radish, Lettuce, Chives, and a few others i can't remember.

HTG, the pictures are all wonderful. Post #2 is priceless and part of why I garden. I have one 7 year old grandson who can't stand tomatoes (He loves Ketchup, Pizza and Spaghetti ), and another grandson that is 4 years old who would rather eat cherry tomatoes than candy.

Inquiring minds need to know what is in all those planters suspended along your walls. It looks like maybe there is an irrigation line to them.

Robert my son is the exact same way. He loves ketchup and pizza but would not eat a tomato to save his life The good news is that he loves to grow tomatoes and my daughter loves to eat them.
