I was afraid that was the bed you were referencing. Sad I think the company can bury specially treated wood blocks in a cage, outside the bed.

Planted one each of my 8 different varieties of tomatoes today.  About 2 weeks later than last year.  I was waiting until the low temps remained above 50 *F but that just hasn't happened yet.  The next 10 days have at least 5 days with the low temps between 40-50*F.  I know that is warmer than most other parts of the country but not as warm as I like it to plant out my tomatoes.  My largest tomato (2 feet tall) a Brandy Boy already flowering.


And a picture of the 4 x 10' bed of tomatoes.  I used 6 Texas Tomato cages and 2 smaller type cages and planted 8 tomato plants in this bed.  Planted them 2 feet apart trying to allow more air to circulate around them to keep them from getting Early Blight so early in the season.

I am just going to sit here daydreaming among the tomatoes.

I guess I will have to keep you entertained with pictures of my tomatoes growing until yours get growing.

Okay, I'll help. Here is a volunteer that sprouted in the house at its mother's knee over the winter. I planted it in the Salad Bar about 3 weeks ago. It's now huge and blooming, but our nights have been so cold I don't see any fruit, yet. It should produce red cherries all year long -- that's what its mother did last year. I wish I knew the variety, but that info is long lost to the whims of time.  Rolling Eyes 


Yes, those are cuke sprouts at the base -- the downside of cold composting.  Embarassed I know I should pull them out, but I just can't!  pale

A few pictures to update today.  

My Live Oak tree beside my garden keeps getting bigger and bigger.




My first baby tomato (Brandy Boy).


Pictures of my Alaska and Strike Shell peas flowering and my first actual pea pod from the Strike bush peas.




My potato bed.  


My lettuce and spinach beds ready to start harvesting the outside leaves.






Cucumbers have just sprouted.  Planted Silver Queen corn yesterday.

Today I planted Rattlesnake Pole Beans in my 2 x 9 foot bed.  I put wheat straw down the middle to help with water retention and also put burlap over the planted bean seeds to help keep them moist and keep the birds from eating the seeds.

The tennis balls are fading. Wink But, the bed is still holding, and you are off to a great start.

Not only did the tennis balls fade but the orange paint on the braces is completely gone.  There is not one spot of orange paint left at all.  Here is what the right side supports looked like last year.


Last year the right side of the bed collapsed and I used old 2 x 4 's to rebuild that side of the wall.  It is holding up real well.  But the left side of the wall collapsed this year.  So I bought a 2 x 12 to rebuild the left side wall.

I didn't even notice the new 2" x 12" left side. Nice.
