Here’s how the new raised planting bed is coming along. I have not filled the ollas in about 9 days when the rains started. The water level is about 2″ down from the top of the neck so the rain has filled the soil profile. When the soil begins to dry, I anticipate the ollas will begin to ‘release’ their water.
Those are pinto beans in between the pepper cages. I may have to thin them out! The other stock tank that I wanted to make a raised bed out of can be seen at the lower left; more on that topic below.
