duhast, that makes me feel like spring is here! Nothing more exciting than watching those seeds sprout and turn into a productive garden. Your garden box, by the way, is looking fabulous! Thanks for posting the pictures.

Your garden looks great! I love how you have the flowers along the edge. Ok, I'm curious about the plastic forks?

"Ok, I'm curious about the plastic forks?"

He doesn't want to waste any time when those babies are ready to eat?

Actually, I think he uses them for labels....right, duhast?

The forks? Labels?

Nope.

Pikes.

Seeing if they keep cats out...

HA-HA!!! Good show, duhast. I guess if they were labels they'd have the handles sticking up, not the tines! And maybe even have writing on them!

Does it work? And how is the plastic runner working? It looks like it's holding in the moisture, have you had any mold growing under it? It looks like it might get pretty hot under there.

Seems to work well. Yes, retains heat and moisture, but hasn't burned any plants or somethings (alfalpha?) that sprouted from the horse crap compost. No mold. See the white wood stakes? I was using those in a couple places to keep the plastic of the ground a little in some places and it sort of made a little greenhouse for the seeds/sprouts.

duhast - I am so glad to see your pictures - that's exactly how my lettuce looks - it sprouted quickly too!. I am also glad to see your cinder blocks - that's what we used. I had posted a question this morning about how to use the block openings and if it was possible to plant onions or garlic in them but the marigolds are perfect. Thanks for the pictures -
