    What do you do with all that zuchini? With 3 plants we end up putting spare zuchinis in the back seat of cars with their windows open at the supermarket. ==c

    Looks great!

    I noticed what you are doing with the zucchinis. I am trying something similar this year. I am growing them in buckets with the bottoms cut out. The method seems to be working much better than what I did last year.

    Inverted tires. :)
    Everything here grows better in raised beds. Few degrees warmer. Helps keep out some bugs & weeds too.

    The method has cut down on the bug and critter problem drastically. I picked up the idea on the web. Peppers seem to love containers too. Each year I lean towards container/raised bed gardening more and more.

    We are mostly raised beds at this point.
