Missing a lot of leaves due to leafcutter ants (which I finally got rid of!)
Here's a closeup of the "trunk."
A year ago I moved a few blocks over and brought my beds and MM with me. My new backyard was even smaller than my old one, so I stacked a couple of my boxes on top of each other and made deeper boxes. I can't say that I've noticed much of a difference. My biggest okra plant (shown above) is in a single depth box. The double boxes do help some with moisture retention, but not enough that I would say it was vital, even in our hot and windy climate. I was struggling with keeping one single depth box moist all summer, but tonight I discovered that 2/3 of the drip tubing in that box was hooked up wrong!
