The corners are trimmed with cedar fence pickets, I put one in the middle of each box on both sides just to break up the box. I stained them the same.

Cow manure can be really "hot" and the high nitrogen content can burn plants. You could apply it sparingly this year, and make a pile to compost for next year.

If you apply it un-composted, I would let it dry completely and turn it into a powder by running a lawn mower over it at its lowest setting. This makes essentially a manure "meal".... kinda like a bone meal or fish meal. Once again, apply it pretty sparingly so that you don't hurt the veggies.

Here is a good example of this

Ya'll have been busy! We finally have ours planted. With the soil being the way it is and our limited amount of compost I ended up planting our goodies in containers that I sank into the ground in our raised beds. Yes it's odd but it saved on compost and will keep the darn ground squirrels out of the roots. We put down 12 strawberry plants, a pile of cucumbers and peas, 15 tomatoes, 12 peppers, squash, zucchini, a black berry briar and a rather nice little herb bed. This weekend we're doing potatoes (just to see if they work), beets, onions and hopefully some kale. After they are all up and doing well we're planting flowers around the containers to help attract our bees.

Richard.

Edit: We actually got the plants in the ground two weeks ago and are already eating strawberries out of the berry bed, have peas on half the plants and 5 squash that should be eating size in about a week.

We have our seedlings still growing inside but going to go outside very soon. Doing 3 types of tomatoes, squash, basil, potatoes, onions, strawberries, 3 types of lettuce, corn.

This is our 2nd year gardening with everything being hydroponic last year. Going about 50/50 this year as we are branching out. Everything should be in the greenhouse other than the melons and corn.

I put a layer over the top of my beds about a month before I'm planting. Then I water it in and make a tea....complete with foam I do this several times. I might even turn it once or twice and water it in again.

So far, no bad results.

I see that several on here have already planted their tomatoes and jalapenos and now I have a question.

According to the Farmers Almanac, I should plant them in early April. Which brings me to my question. Would it hurt if I planted them now? I live on the coast and will be planting them in big mineral tubs.

As long as it stays 40 or higher, I have not had any issue. When it dips below that I'll bring them in or cover them to keep the frost off.

Here is the link for their planting schedule, and you can change it to whichever zone you are in (a lot of TX is Zone 8):

Gonna head to Callaways or lowes today. Was too lazy to start my own seeds this year. Trying to remember to scale it back this year and hope it will increase production by not over crowding. Been adding compost and bonemeal to the raised bed the last couple days so hoping soil will be good

Just planted the first batch. Black Krum, Mortgage Lifter, Cherokee Purple and Caspian Pink as well as some other heirloom varieties that seemed to germinate from last years tomatoes. Also put in some ghost pepper and poblanos.

I picked up some cantaloupe, watermelon, Kentucky wonder pole beans and some blue lake bush beans too but not sure if I should plant them in the big box or containers, haven't tried to grow any of these before. And some aristocrat zucchini

Alright so I was talking with my gardening partner (my 3 yr old littlegirl) a little bit ago. I asked her if there was anything special she wanted to grow this year . She told me she wanted to grow her own pumpkin. That is one thing I've never grown. Any tips or pointers to help get her a pumpkin grown? I know they run and that's what I'm worried about since this is in my backyard and I don't have a ton of room

Heck, pumpkins are pretty easy to grow... The think to remember is some of the vining/running plants will "mix" if planted too close together... such as pumpkins, watermelons, cantaloupe, squashes, cucumbers... Not sure if all with cross with each other, but a bunch of them will... A year ago, we had a jack-o-lantern break near the back door. some of the seeds were still inside... All spring long last year, we had pumpkin vines coming up between the rocks in the sidewalk/rock linings... Had more trouble gettin' rid of 'em than we did trying to grow 'em.
Good luck!!

How did you grow the blue lake? Can't decide if I should put it in the raised bed or a planter/5 gallon bucket

That was a single year's growth. It was started in the greenhouse the last week of December 2015, transplanted Easter 2016, and killed by the first frost. We got 9 gallons of peppers (6 of them were green) off of it throughout the year.
Here are the Ghosts and Reapers from this year...

It grew another 4.5 feet, but it had fallen over due to lack of support. 14.5 foot total length. It is an indeterminate variety, and I pinched all suckers for the first 6 feet.

It also produced like gangbusters....

I'm trusting the 39 low forecast on weather underground... got some mini greenhouses (aka clear plastic cups) on the cucumber seedlings, as well as about 2" of shredded leaf mulch. Everything else out is cold tolerant. Putting tomatoes and peppers out in a week and a half.

We only got to the middle 40's, and should be good tonight too. Will watch the weather this evening and decide if things need covering... We're ready if need be, but not much planted anyway. 'taters that came up are growing real nice tho. Wouldn't want to lose them. I think I'd be more disappointed in losing all the dewberry blooms around than the few things we've got planted in the garden to tell the truth... Right now if they don't get hit, we'll have the best berry crop we've had in years!

My thyme didn't either. It comes back regardless, but it was green all winter. Oregano typically comes back around here also. I have a huge plant that I finally divided a couple of days ago. Tomatoes are in and a few bell peppers. I'll wait until Wednesday to plant rest of the peppers. Cucumber/squash seeds will be sewn in a couple of weeks. Onions, garlic, and cilantro are strong and healthy.

You guys north of the Houston area covering your plants tonight?

Our forecast lows are in the 40's...( Cleveland area). My bride spot planted gaps in her potatoes today, and she put a dozen or so tomato plants and some bell peppers n jalapenos.

When do you guys plant peas n corn? That will be the lion's share of her garden, but I'm thinking it might be a little early for them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
