Look at the joinery and hand woven trellis-sweet!

The bottom picture looks like you set up automatic watering.   If so, what did you use?

Wow, the boxes are very nice, but look at that trellised arbor! Really nice, and it looks like your garden gets plenty of sun.

I sincerely appreciate the nice comments. I had no idea my handy work would even raise an eyebrow.
To answer your question, yes I setup an automatic watering system. I have a rain barrel equipped with a pump and timer. I will post photos of it this week. I actually this week I will be extending the system to our new SFG boxes I installed a few weeks ago. My design I over sized the pump system to accommodate the added volume. I can't wait to see how she works.

Holy crow! These are fantastic! You sure aren't intimidated by woodworking. Can't wait to see your irrigation set up. Welcome to the forum, Pappy! A wonderful addition indeed.

Looks great.  Always wanted to try an arch trellis.  Care to share plans?  Or did you buy it?

Thanks Slim, sorry I have no plans. What I can do is post a pic of the trellis without the beans. You can get a better idea. The nice part about the trellis, my honey can pick a mess of beans for supper with little effort. Hey, if my honey is happy everyone is happy...lol
