Tech to make life easier

We’ve implemented a converted 50-gallon lidded trash can to catch rain, built PVC trellis and bamboo trellis, added levels to existing raised beds, and started making our own concrete planters. The compost tumblers are a longer work in progress. Oh yeah, soaker hose which we haven’t had to use a ton yet because it’s been so rainy.
