Wow  - I'll be showing this to my other half and might just have to give this a try - I have some guava seeds I've been saving and have been hesitant to start them and unsure how (I live in Arizona where it hits 100 by May and often 110 through Septemmber).

I've done something similar, but I used an upturned plastic water bottle (500ml size) turned upside down with the bottom cut off as a watering tube. For things where I was transplanting seedlings I turned the used compost bag into a plastic mulch to keep the water from evaporating too much. Ugly in March, but soon covered by plants.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I think your garden is great - but, you're getting POUNDS of beans?
We have a backyard garden - including beans - and while I am reconciled that we will have an abundance of tomatoes (DH makes a mean spaghetti sauce) I am not overly-fond of string beans.
Wonder if I can adapt a three bean salad recipe to one bean?

I read the whole essay also, it was more interesting than you think. I have put this tutorial in my favorites and will definitely do this this planting season. I was able to get your link to the book to work and will definitely buy it. It sounds like there is a lot of good stuff in it. However, I tried to use the topsy turvy tomato growers and the things disintegrated and I wasn't able to get any tomatoes to grow from it. Glad you did, I am beginning to think I have a black thumb, so far the only crop that has grown for me was yellow squash, tons of it. I donated it to the soup kitchen.  Roll Eyes HaHaHa
