Italian Egg Plant.



Squash, Peppers and Egg plant bed.



Tomatoes, that is a 5 foot chain link fence behind this bed.









The Squash plants.



Water soaker bottle. This has worked very well just has to move it every so often but all water goes in the beds.



I don't think I have had a half dozen weeds to pull, but Next year I am going to experiment with a total black plastic cover over the whole bed. Also going to build 1/2 PCV sprinkler system that will fit under the plastic. I think the Marigolds have did as I wanted too as I halve not found any type of bugs on any thing.

My hat's off to you. I've never had a garden that looked any where near that good.
