Nice Karoo.I have 3ft beds lined with plastic and no water issues at all. I finally found a place to get peat moss and its not too expensive, comes in a 200l bale,they also do coco coir. They can deliver also for you if you ever want to get some for your beds,just thought i would mention it.

Thank you , I am blessed with great soil and limitless compost , now to see how it works!
Very interesting approach
I can't wait to see how it pans out.
It should be good!
I'm mostly dirt here, but made some raised beds which we use for winter crops. 3, each 4x8 foot with concrete bottoms (tapered), and each has 2 2" drains. Mainly to keep the bermuda grass from getting into them. On top of the concrete frames I used landscape timbers, so the depth is about 3 foot. They work great. You put much more goodies in yours than I did.
So once again, it should be really nice
Good luck this season!
Thank you , yes interesting , but remember we have only 250 mm of annual rainfall and summer temps above 36degrees C for most of the summer , just planting in soil does not work as all moisture is just sucked away by the surrounding dry earth.
Beds look great ! love the scenery there !
Thank you , my favourite place for my early morning coffee , out in the back garden.
Still two weeks to go to last frost , all plants are germinated and growing in my ghetto growbox.
Old germination mix with thick fungus growth really messed up my initial germination. A thick layer of fungus and 0% germination .
A quick microwave of the remaining germination mix quickly cured that problem .
In the back you can see all the eager Annuums and in front the Ajis are beginning to show their hooks.
