I must print a copy of this so that  WHEN  I ever get to England my brother can get something like this made for us.

I am sure his grandson would love to make something like this for his granddad. His grandson has a business demolishing  old  houses and building new ones, or at least remodelling them. Just like you see on  TV.

Everything you do sanderson and your husband is first class work.

The only consolation for me is the plants grow anyway, thank goodness. My beds are at the end of their lives and would be due for renewal this year to raised beds.

No idea when I will get to England now, so I will plant a couple of beds, keep the garden tidy and under control and hope for the best. At least I can get outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, unlike millions of other people.

Thanks, guys. I went outside this morning and I still love it!

KJ, When you get to England, you can just show grandson these photos in this thread.

April and May are the prettiest months in the garden.  No disease, no aphids, no red spider mites or dead leaves.  There are 2 replacement beds, the 2'x8' table top which is now ground level with cement board as the bottom, and a 2'x3' TT up on cement blocks.  I have 28 sq ft in beans, Rattlesnake, Dragon Tongue, bush Blue Lake and Pole Blue Lake.  There are 10 Snow Fairy tomatoes (saving seeds is the main goal), and 9 heirlooms in the BTE strip, 2 large paste and 1 Sun Gold for snacking.

Dragon Tongue beans, empty garlic bed, sweet potato totes and some of the heirloom tomatoes in the BTE. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 8 Garden79

L-R.  New bed and 2 potted large paste tomatoes, Hale cantaloupe and 2 luffa for overhead shade, strawberries and winter squash. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 8 Garden77

Blue lake pole beans.  The 2'x7' has eggplants and peppers. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 8 Garden80

New bed with Snow Fairies and some peppers. All of the SF have tomatoes! Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 8 Garden81

New 2'x3' bed on cement blocks.  Leveling the dirt was the hardest part. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 8 Table_61

Before.  The bed was built in 2014 and had 1/2" plywood as a bottom. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 8 Table_62

Cement board? Interesting... What made you decide on that, Sanderson? (Gonna have to do some work to my beds. This is a definite idea!)

The cement board is an experiment. The reason I have elevated table tops is because of root invasion I discovered a year after the first on-ground beds were built. I figured if SFG beds can be set on driveways, steps, patios, etc. I would try on cement board to imitate a cement slab. My thought is that it could be a solution to invasive tree roots for some folks. The extra water seeps out between the wood frame and the cement board. The bed is lined with durable weed fabric to hold in the Mel's Mix.

I'm going to be watching this carefully... :-) I'm planning on re-designing the garden to meet my current (physical) needs. And, of course, I'd prefer things not break down after a couple of years, lol!
