My wife does all the gardening. Tonight is our first harvest of brassica and leaf lettuce.

Very nice.
Is there an advantage to raised beds?

Very, very nice! Is that in your yard or a communal garden spot?

Doc, raised beds save a bit on your back, the soil you put in them is usually much better and rock-free, and it's easier to turn over year after year.

I'm envious!

Yes. We have no dirt just glacial rock below the surface of the lawn. The rock in the first picture came from by our deck. I’m working on moving it but some of those things are to heavily for my replaced joints and dodgy back.

After I took these pictures the mrs planted the rest of her tomatoes in the planter bags. This is a first using these bags and will be interesting to see if they work.

I use the cloth bags on a lot of my plants.
You can't over water, which is a good
thing. I also plant in the dirt. I have a rototiller
attachment for my battery drill. Sometimes I mix
Perlight, and potting or garden soil. into both
the cloth bags, or the ground, My Rototiller drill
mixes everything up well.

We got some marrow seeds, as well. I’m not sure where they will go. If I get a couple of big ones, I will be happy.
