    I use the old flowerbeds built into the front of my house as raised beds I am not much of a flower guy when they make great for veggies, and I havenít seen a rabbit scale brick yet so it keeps them out of the veggies.
    Though I do plant other things in the ground just because like the corn.
    And I am thinking about adding potatoes this year.

    Thanks for that info. I was thinking about trying a few this year, but might stick w/buckets. When the raised beds get built they'll all have level tops & sloped bottoms lol. Joys of living on the slant. We've a sunny hill close enough for watering; might do some terracing next year. Tom started tomato onion lettuce & basil seeds today in the greenhouse. We be a'learnin here.

    That is a damn nice looking planter! But that is just too damn much work for the number of them Mrs Inor wants.

    We are using the grow bags again this year. They work well but only last for a year before the sun and wind tear them all up.

    Inor, be sure to watch his second video, he remade the forms. I may even try it for next year.

    I think it would make a great winter project.

    I watched it. I like the first incarnation better, only because I think the forms will hold up better and I have BUNCH of these to do. So longevity of the forms matters to me too. If I only was going to make a couple dozen, the second video is definitely the option I would choose. But you have met Mrs Inor; anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
