That fresh salad plate topped with chicken made my stomach growl. Beautiful! :) All the pictures are good. Somewhere along the line, could you make a list of which plants and veggies did the best in the planters and which not as well? Of course, growing conditions can change every year and everyone is in a different climate or at least micro-climate. But I'm curious to know.

If you were starting again (which you will next year), what would your ratios of humus or compost and soil be to begin?

The planters still look good too. It appears they will definitely last a long time.

Thanks, Terry and Melody, for a very educational series.

All of the herbs did beautifully. I'll leave mine in the smaller bed where they have established themselves. Eggplants were a big surprise with both of my plants churning out quite a few fruits. Peppers like Gronomics beds and so did my cherry tomato.

The bean plants were pretty, but just produced so-so. Carrots and beets were ok, but the heat did take its toll, so the harvest was small. I think the cucumbers and zucchini would have been awesome planted a couple of weeks earlier when there were more pollinators about.

The lettuce and Asian greens are the stars! The weather and location of the beds makes for perfect conditions and I can hardly keep ahead of the harvest.

We'll revisit our Gronomics beds here and there as the season progresses...so don't worry, this won't be the last time you see them!

Thank you. I really do want one (or two) of these. One for herbs and another for mainly greens and a few other things like maybe the overflow of herbs. :)
