Its been a long haul, unloading, removing beds, lifting and redoing it all.
All was worth it already, I am in the process of planting square by square and everything seems to be just popping all over the place...This Mel's Mix is 3 years old, about a quart of compost to each square.

I'm glad I made the switch, also. No more invasive roots. Very Happy

Looks really good jimmy cee.  I know it was a lot of hard work.  What is the purpose of the plastic containers you are using around some plants.

Yolos,
Not quite sure about this one, They are really nice containers and I have many due to their grapefruit contents.
One thing I do notice, when I do water ( a cup of sun warmed water ) since it's buried in the mix, all the water stays in the area I want to water.. Also snails, slugs, etc may find it difficult to access, especially if I coat the out side with tanglefoot.

Wow... so nice.  I had a tree removed during my first year (I'm a small operation).  However, removing that tree meant a good deal more sun.  Since the boxes near the tree are self-contained, the remaining roots didn't affect anything (some one not too forward thinking planted this tree right above our run off lines for the septic... stump was not ground for fear of breaking lines... wasn't me, but previous owner decades ago).

Jimmy....your bed looks so nice and neat.  I like how you utilize the cut-off jars and bottles to conserve water around your plants.  Good idea.

Tree roots gone, beds back in business Empty no roots this year

Post  jimmy cee 6/8/2015, 10:41 am

An inside pic of my #2 bed, covered completely since planting.
Last season, this bed would hardly grow anything, this year..back to what I though was great during my first season with SFG.
I sneaked a tomato plant in there just for the heck of it, a couple of eggplants also...
I'll see what I need for pollination.
kohlrabi, all kinds of lettuce, broccoli, a salvia, marigold, herbs, a few celery..I think I am going to keep a bed covered forever.

Beautiful!  Yes, I would keep them covered if only for the cruciferous veggies.

Looking strong, Jimmy.

Keeping a bed perpetually covered sounds like a great idea. The bugs can't eat it if they can't touch it! Can't lay their eggs there either. I bet it even makes a solid difference with disease prevention.

I just push them down till a good resistance is felt, I'd guess about maybe 1 inch if that.
