What is the purpose of the straw bales? I want to try raised beds, so thanks for the link.

No pvc lasts a loooong time...sink 1/2" metal conduit and use 3/4" pvc for trellis and mini greenhouse domes...works well

yes..., I agree. I am of the same mindset. no tilling, no hoeing.., no plowing. spend your time considering different ideas or crops. I'm guessing the pvc needs to be replaced every so often, so beyond that, very sustanable.

"Thank you Keryn, you obviously are fertilizing just right!  Mine are indoors, but it has been a relatively cool summer.  I will try just a little fertilizer.  At least the plants look healthy and still alive!"
