Plants look good. I see the sideways pic thing quite a bit, try uploading them to a hosting site (I use imgur) and then you can rotate them before posting.

Mulched the raised bed with pine straw.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I decided on pine straw.


It was reasonably priced, readily available, and easy to apply.


Also, it is quite 'fluffy' compared to other mulches, which should allow for good air circulation and water penetration.

If you give them light and water, I do not see why they would have any issues.

I will start with the weekly application of the fish and seaweed (at 80% of recommended strength) around the first week of July. I use ~five gallon of mix for the entire raised bed, so, they really are not getting a lot, just a little boost.


The micro sprinklers are great! I adjust the water pressure so they each give about 2 or 3 foot diameter circle . I have them on a timer, every day it does not rain, from 05:30 - 06:00.
