Hi Doug, great choice on the above ground planters. They can be made out of just about anything, and once set up you won't believe the amount of harvest for the space. Mel has a great outline to start with. Most of all, use good medium. Some local landfills sreen and test compost for a fraction of the cost. (here, truckload $35)Then add your other items based on you conditions. (we recommend never using the existing soil if possible, unless worked before and is healthy, unless of course dollars are an issue, then use whatever you got) In the heat, you want to retain moisture, so set up your medium up accordingly. Are you going with one large one...? or 2, 3 or 4 smaller ones...? The best part is..., with this type of garden, if you take a minute and set it up right...NO WEEDS.....! Gool luck on your patch...!!

My neighboors had a garden when they passed away the area went back to grass. The new neighboors said that If I wanted to start a garden I was welcom to the space. It was to late to start one this year but I did till it up and throw some wild flower seeds down and some mellon seeds that I collected from my food prep job. I actuall grew 3 cantalopes. They were small and not anyware close to ready to eat but I know that I can grow stuff in that spot. IM going to go with the Square Food Garden in Spring. The section will hold 3 beds.

Alan, try seedsaversexchange.com. Members and the parent organization offer orange pepper seeds. For plants, I suspect chiliplants.com would have them. They have an excellent array of peppers, eggplants and tomatoes.

Thanks, Diana. After I posted I got to thinking that most don't have the multiple gardening seasons we have here in the Orlando area and taking tomato cuttings for propagation may not be something that would occur to or work for everyone. I'm kinda' psyched as it's a first for me and seems to be working nicely.
(Bean pics coming soon!)
