dunno, thumbie.... but here's some stuff to look thru while you wait for her or whoever to come in....
This is the site we used for plans. DH just finished another one for my sister. I already had a water supply line for a drip system running behind the planter, so I ran lines into buried soda bottles. I hand watered for the 1st few months, but once they were established they are watered only by the drip lines.
It's looking good, KG! What are you doing with all those delicious looking berries? Strawberry Trifle time?
How are things going in your part of CA?

They are not around long enough to make anything with them as DH & I gather a bunch, wash, and gobble them up.
It has been beautiful here for a couple of months but we have already had a couple of 100 degree days, and more will be here in no time. I have added more new planted pots than I should have & need to get the watering lines to them so I can let DH off of watering duty each am. I have to be at work by 7:30...
Summers are just this side of hell, but you don't have to shovel sunshine...
