Looks good, let us know how they work out. It seems like a great system.

Latest pics of the garden. Things are growing fast. Peas, tomato's, beans and lettuse especially.









Corn...starting to shoot up fast. As soon as those green leaves caught the sunlight...it just started growing fast. I'm guessing corn grows pretty fast considering how big they get.






Built another self watering tomato planter. Doing their job pretty well.

Looks like everything is doing really well. The lettuce looks great. It is amazing to see how much the difference in Latitude affects things. Some of our corn is 6 feet, the zucchini has been producing for several weeks, and the basil has already bolted here. I am sure that with your longer days you will be catching up soon.

I am really happy with the tomato planters although with mine I need to water every three days.

That sounds about right for me too. Every three days or so I pump water into them. I can never tell how much is in there so I tried every three days and it seems about right considering how much I add in.

I've gotta get update pictures of all my stuff. My pepper plants are producing now. Though I'll say probably a week or so till I have something I can eat. Lettuce, Broccoli and Celery plants are all huge, don't know when I'll see something edible though.

Looking very good Hig. Our stuff is just comming up still. But, we planted a bit late too. Yours also looks like you weed very good. Ours really needs weeding!

Got some new pics. Lettuce and peas are being harvested already. Peas are super sweet. Some of my tomato plants got nailed by the wind again...they're still alive, but I doubt they'll produce much if anything. I decided just to post on them on facebook and send the link so if you want to check them out, go ahead. You don't need to be on facebook to view these.

Daox, check out the butternut crunch lettuce near the end of the pics.

nice pix. I owe some new ones myself. my lettuce is shot, non-edible. i might get some broccoli surprisingly. I've harvested a dozen green peppers (given away half of that so far since i can't eat that much), i'll probably get at least one celery group, and i think my watermelon is starting to grow fruit
