Another month here before I can sow melons and beans, but I have to catch up on planting the rest of the potatoes and start sowing corn. :shock:
Really? it didn't hurt my plants at all...

I got them from Lowes and Wal-Mart. You should be able to find them in the gardening section by the wood and green plastic stakes.

hehe thanks. O:)
Depends on the bed. The first two on the right I had help with so I'm not sure. But I tend to set them up in steps. Actually I don't really pay attention to how long it takes mostly just trying to get it done. :P I want to set up four more but hauling 5yards or more soil in my dads itty bitty car probably isn't a good idea. :>

Its very hot and humid here during the summer and I don't really get much of a winter. But I love the heat so it perfect for me! :()

As for soil I've only been growing for 2 years and have used a bagged gardening compost manure that has sand, compost and what not already mixed in. The only thing I've ever added were fall leaves during the fall and winter By time spring was here all of it was composted in my beds. I did add peat moss at one point but found it unnecessary with my well draining soil.
