These are the Vegie Bays under construction
There were built to last a long time.
I experimented with growing the tomato horizontally along a suspended wire in both directions. The capsicums (Peppers) seemed to like growing in the Vegie Bays.
Marigolds have always been my favourites. Later I discovered they were good to have in the vegie garden. This was my original vegie garden. I moved the compost bin and built the Vegie Bays later on. I experimentally grew a zucchini. It grew very well, no wonder, because the roots came out of the bottom.

This is a bit of a selection of bok choy, tomatoes, lettuce, corn, beans and marigolds. Mostly I use the no dig method, by covering the ground with mulch. The original corn (bought seedlings) were a disaster, they were full of mush and bugs. So I planted some seeds and the corn were fantastic (multicoloured). The soil in original vegie patch was not very good and needed the addition of lots of compost. I bought a load of mushroom compost.
