    I'd bet there's 300+ tomatoes on the ground from 2, 5'x10' beds, working a little earth this morning.. The 2020 growing season really stretched itself..

    Where did you source the metal cylinders and what is the diameter? I am starting a new garden and looking for a solution that lasts and requires no maintainence. My last garden beds were redwood but that isn't a viable solution here. Thanks

    They are 36 inches wide cut to 28 inches tall (culvert pipe/tin horn( , I had them manufactured. They are a cheap knock off of the Birdie garden beds ....which are always sold out here in the states. I am going to build a redwood bed this year to replace some of landscape timber beds
