I see you using that lawnmower dump cart out there! +1

And it looks like you have a nice new raised bed too!

Thanks and the greenhouse is working out very well. This is the Harbor Freight 10 X 12 size, I put it up about 3 years ago, I have the foundation vented and a thermostatic gable fan so I can usually keep it within 10 degrees of ambient temp.
I also have a commercial ceiling fan mounted for air movement. Good luck to you also.

Yes, the little dump cart gets used a lot.
Not really a raised bed, more in the way of hybrid containers, they needed to be a little deeper for beets, carrots and other things. Radishes coming up in the lower left tub.

WOW! Truly amazing what you have accomplished in buckets!

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.        Robert Heinlein

I have well over 100 buckets in use right now. Buckets are usually inexpensive and/or free(most of mine are pickle buckets and cat liter buckets). Also gives me good control of the growing medium(some is probably 5 years old but gets remixed every use with some new added in occasionally). Plus I add in inexpensive dry fertilizer from the local mill/farm store.

Time to harvest and process the Kratky Kossak Kohlrabi.

This seedling went into the net pot on April 18, looks like 7 pounds 9 1/2 ounces with a few leaves on as of today.

Here is the root mass that was hanging in the magical juice.

Potted up the last 4 artichoke plants, iffy that they will produce before frost but gotta try.

Those WeatherTech mats really are good. A little extra water on the hot days for fabric pots!😏

One or two pie pumpkins on each plant now.

The first ripe Tomatoberry tomatoes, the three on the left are from a container plant, the two on the right are from the plant in Kratky hydro.

I really like the Tomatoberry tomatoes as they are less watery and more meaty inside. Good to eat as is and really good in salsa.

The bushy stuff upper right is my asparagus in fern mode and making seed. The plants in center amongst all the weeds are all the surplus plants that were destined for the compost pile. I decided to jam them out in the field in the sand and let them fend for themselves, more or less.

Asparagus that I started from seed. Will soon plant out to add to the patch, which is already several years in the making, adding some plants every year. Then the two to three year wait before you can cut and eat it.
