More lessons from the field

continuing on a previous post….

Pea and bean trellis needs to have vertical lines to climb the best. And “garden twine” from Lowes is crap. Look at it wrong and it snaps.

Boxes are cute and fun and special garden layouts attractive, but not practical for economical and effective watering. Next time I’ll probably do plain ol’ rows. With real drip irrigation.

Name tags…permanent marker on plastic tags, genius. Writing on wooden popsicle sticks with regular pen, not so smart. I’m not sure which tomatoes are which, or which peas are which!
