      Shirley, I’m picking spinach every day now and broccoli, so it’s coming along nicely!

    I did this a few years ago when I installed my soaker hose. I think I used old stakes I found in my garage…hangers are a great idea too! Wish I had some raised beds. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Ann I love my raised beds, no weeding and I can keep everything contained in one neat spot. Hubby built mine a few years ago, and I move them from time to time and add fresh soil but I don’t think I’d go back to in the ground method again.

    This is great, I will give it a try. I just use large stones to hold my soaker hoses in place if they are disobedient. Once they heat up they are more compliant but still have to use stone here and there. After 10 years I am finally having to replace all my soaker hoses in my flower beds. Finding them beneath all the growth is a chore but being they were not exposed to the sun they lasted much longer than expected.
    I hope you eased your deer problem too. I had to use those sprinkler that come on when they walk within view of it, they are called Scarecrows (I think), they did a good job for me keeping those garden eating rascals at bay.

      Pam I was planning on taking mine hoses up every year, hadn’t thought of leaving them in the garden. So far no deer, must be they can’t figure out the fishing line ๐Ÿ™‚
