Yes, rain and more rain! bounce Fresno has already received 1/5 of the normal annual rain (starting October).

Do the clamps work with 1/2" PVC and EMC?

The PVC I'm using now is 1/2". I assume the clamps would work equally well with EMC if it was 1/2". Beyond 1/2", not so much. I suspect that they will photo-degrade. I'm thinking of giving them a light spray-paint coat at some point to slow that process.

SFG #3 in progress. This is a 2 x 8 box intended for the front lawn. Now that I'm becoming committed to the idea, I thought I should put on a primer layer, hopefully extending its life. The tulle makes such a difference ... but I'm reluctant to use it in the front. Anyone use covered garden beds in front of their homes?

I was just remembering this comment. In my experience (tents, cooking devices), duct tape is terrible outside. When exposed to the sun, it quickly becomes gooey and messy. And, of course, it's not transparent.

I've been using clear packing tape for a month to fix a hole where some animal tried to paw its way in. It seems to be working. During rains, it turns opaque, but then turns clear again when things dry up. I've had various packages and things that have been outside a long time, held together with packing tape.

Thanks for the tip of clear packaging tape. Regarding bridal tulle in the front yard, you could "gussie" it up with bridal tulle flower bunches, strings of beads from Joann's, Christmas lights, etc.

SFG#1 now has tulle also. Hopefully this will give the kale, kohlrabi, and bok choy a chance to recover.

SFG#3. I tore out the existing planter and built this around the 2nd year Kale which have taken on new life now that we've gotten some rain. In another 6 months or so they'll start looking like trees from Dr. Seuss.  The other plants are transplants are from SFG#2.

The winter garden (SFG #2) was actually looking pretty good this morning. Unfortunately, I've been moving things around without keeping up my note-taking:
