Bowmansdad: Those are some great looking raised beds. That looks like some HD galvanized,corrugated metal and pro level joints. Did you do those joints, or is there some kind of a kit out there? If it is a kit, how do I find it?

Will you be leaving the pails on the plants for the whole season, or do they come off after the cool weather? If you leave them on, make sure that there are no leaves left on the plants below the rim of the pail. It would invite disease.

If I knew how to flip the picture for you... I would..... but I don't!

Not trying to be negative. I haven't had much luck at growing maters in buckets. You get some but I never got any yield.

I bought these through Gardeners Supply, I think. Google "corrugated tin raised beds" should do it. I took the buckets off today and hung my tomatoes to the supports overhead, trimmed the low branches off also. My wife decided I needed to put soaker hoses in the beds, off to Lowes for hose, pvc and hose clamps tomorrow..

Japs and Serrano are starting to take off, planted them on March 5th. Going to put everything else in tubs behind the greenhouse and in our backyard rose bed to see how that works.

We need some rain bad here in Livingston area. My sprinkler system is down waiting on parts and have to water the old fashioned way.

Don't need any hail, but some rain would be welcome here.

The bucket! I've been there done that. I usually use the bucket when I first plant.
