Tomatoes, Onions, Garlic, Basil, Oregano, Parsley, Cucumbers and Greenbeans. I my yield is as good as it looks now, I will probably add at least two more beds next year. It's become almost an obsession to me. I am so eager to learn from others and expand what I'm growing.

Thanks for the compliment.

What are you growing?

Colleen Very Happy

Oh it looks so lovely! I can see why it would become an obsession. I hope it does go so well that you will indeed want to expand. Congratulations!

Very nice! Looks like everything is healthy and strong.  Yes, those boxes look cool! I thought maybe they were a special sfg thing and wasn't going to say anything (being new to the forum)

If I had seen those beds on the www., i could have saved untold $ and curse words.  They look like they will last at least a lifetime, can be moved if needed, and everything inside of them looks great!

Very Nice SFG! Are the trellises fence type? I am new to this and not sure of all the things used for trellises.

The Trellis is a tomato cage. It is not very strong but so far it is working. I may have to reinforce it from behind.
