This evening, I started installing two 5' x 8' nylon trellis meshes on the 2' x 7' bed.  For permanent trellises, I use zip ties.  These trellises are temporary for indeterminate tomatoes and will be taken down Oct. 1.  So, I'm just "whip stitching" the meshes with cotton string.  One mesh up.

Despite being sick and only being able to water to keep things alive, the garden is looking better.  If you go back to page one, you can see the bare garden before photos.

View towards south, slightly west.  It shows 7 beds.  Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 3 Garden41

Sanderson...your work is incredible. I see many hours of joyful thinking in your photo's.
Looking back on my previous beds, I think that was the best time, sitting in the morning with coffee, afternoon with a beer, just general refreshing thinking of how I want to do this...looks beautiful...

Thank you, folks.  It only looks so pretty and clean because it's SFG.  The area on the patio is a swirl of leaves, spilled MM, dust, and clutter, which I started cleaning and then got sick.  It will have to wait a week. I'm feeling better each day now.

We are leaving Thursday for Missouri and will be flying back on Monday.  The top priority is to get 3 trays of starts into an area where they will be watered and not eaten by snails and slugs until we return.  Plus 3 buckets of tomatoes and a tomatillo.

I love your garden! So jealous of both your energy and your lovely set up. I'm glad you're feeling better.

In this photo, I'm wondering about the bracing - does the PVC go all the way over to the fence wall, or is the tie to the wooden bracket enough to keep everything braced? I'm just wondering if the brace is helping to hold the weight of the tomatoes once they're that tall, or if it's more to keep the EMT straight, or ...? I have so much to learn.

BJW,  Thanks.  The brace is only to maintain vertical alignment.  It was purchased pre-cut in 2' lengths at HD and does NOT go all the way to the fence.  The green stretchy garden tape should be sticky/stretchy enough to hold.

The tomatoes will be supported by the strings (paracord) tied to the overhead horizontal EMC. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 3 Bte_to15

Thanks.  Right now everything are as perfect as they will be.  In a month, the plants will be screaming from the red spider mites and moaning in the heat.  As long as they produce, I will fight for them.  There is one cucumber that pollinated enough to grow, one unfertilized yellow squash, and quite a bit of male flowers.  The tomatoes and beans have their first flowers. Now, if there were just more pollinators than the one bee and one bumble bee that are currently present.

Thanks, Has. And, no one mentioned the weeds in the flower beds (wood chips). Razz The back yard is my area of responsibility as it is herbicide-free (except for vinegar and Epsom salt in the cracks between the bricks of the patio). Ken has the front yard except for me planting flowers in the spring.

As of 6-5-18:

Standing on the patio, looking SSE.  Tomato suckers in red cups, Dragon Tongue beans, sweet potatoes and some BTE tomatoes.  The empty bed had the winter garlic, so I planted old soy beans.  After 10 days or so, I figured they were too old.  Then, I bought some Red Foliated cotton seed and planned to plant one per square.  Yep, it looks like the soy beans are coming up.  I'll just remove the middle soy and plant the cotton.  Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 3 Garden49

Standing on the patio facing South.  Background are the blue Lake bush beans. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 3 Garden50

My favorite view from the patio.  Looking SSW. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 3 Garden51

Looking SSW at the Blue Lake pole beans and the compost bin.  The white buckets with 3 tomatoes and 1 tomatillo need to be moved, eventually, and wrapped in aluminum foil. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 3 Garden53

West side of yard with cantaloupe, summer squash and winter squash. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 3 Garden52

Aluminum foil? Is that to reflect the heat? Have you tried looking for those cheap little insulated blanket mylar thingies? Would they work cheaper and be sturdier?
