I love what you have done with your raised beds. Very ingenious with the pipe. Fabulous varieties of peppers. I know you will make Stella jealous since she is also a pepper nut (she is a nice lady on this forum). Are you growing any tomato varieties?
The only thing I don't envy you for is the amount of labor you invest/invested in your garden. I don't think my sore muscles would have recovered from that much labor. I purposely keep mine small and easy to maintain so I don't have to wake up every morning with a list of things that need attention, in my head.
Have you thought about using some of those pipes with couplings and elbows to build a super strong greenhouse or tunnel house?

Welcome to the forum. I'm looking forward to your future posts. I hope your daughter is doing well.
Ted, thanks for the reply!
Tomatoes?: I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like em! Wish I did, taste buds like what they like.
Now salsa and spaghetti sauce Oya. My wife is the tomato lady, she likes a beef steak type for tomato juice and sandwiches and roma for salsa and the small sun tomatoes for drying.
Sore muscles, you got that right! Sound like youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been there done that.
Initially 20 raised beds 78 pipes per, X driving each one a foot into the ground; ouch brake out the bengay! Putting in 6 more right now, after their done thought; no bending over, no weeding, just plant-water-harvest. Gotta love that!
Tunnel house: IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m almost out of pipes now, but have plans for a 52 ft geodesic dome greenhouse for this year if I have time.
Thanks for the welcome and kind words for my daughter! Spicy Chicken
