I planted out these spinach seedlings at the same time. The top photo is in a raised garden bed and the bottom photo is in the straw bale. 

The straw bales are definately better for spinach.


Strawberry Towers

The strawberry plants have not done well in the towers. The bottom plants have died due to being water logged and  the upper plants are not getting enough water. 

The plan now is to change to growing strawberries horizontally along the fence line.

My new planters are ready and have been planted out.

Hopefully the plants start producing a good crop.
