We're building/planting a gigantic above ground garden box that spans about half the length of our yard's fenceline. Bonus - it'll hopefully keep the dog from barking at everyone walking by.
It will need a lot of dirt. Anyone have experience getting dirt delivered? Mostly concerned about cost. Our garden is up on a big hill, so I think either way we're going to have to haul dirt from the street up to the boxes, which honestly seems easier if it's in bags than if we have a pile at the bottom of the hill.
Anyone ever had luck growing okra around here?
What bugs etc. will everyone be releasing to control pests? I want to hear lots of tricks. We did ladybugs and mantises last year, and in the fall found a mantis the length of my finger.
