    That looks great. You really need to invest in a plastic layer couldnt imagine putting plastic down without one. How do your tomatoes do doubled like that? we do a single row in our plastic never seen anyone do double rows in a row of plastic. we double our peppers. we have about 100 tomato plants in the ground 300 peppers 20 squash and 150ft of green beans along with some eggplant okra, peas, and a few hundred cucumber plants.

    I actually have one that I made and works halfway decent. I’m going to invest in a manufactured one over the winter. As long as you are weaving tomatoes and not staking doubling up works fine. Just have to zig zag for diagonal spacing as well.

    Hidden Valley Ranch has changed over the years but still my favorite ranch. I’ve got to where I can drink to Olive Garden dressing though. I love cucumbers soaked in salt water but they are pretty dang good marinated in Olive Garden Italian. Same with cabbage and red pepper flakes

    We're gonna start on the lettuce bed this weekend. Oak leaf, Lolla Rossa, Green ice, and Red Sails. Probably throw something on the grill and have a YUGE salad to begin.

    Looks amazing! That's the one thing I've kicked myself over not planting this spring. Those summer cookouts taste a whole lot better with a big slice of mater and fresh picked lettuce on your burger!

    Thanks! There was a couple of years I managed cucumbers, and mater's with the lettuce, but most years just onions. My whole family expects lettuce and lots of it every year. The Green ice variety is amazingly thick and crisp, almost iceberg.

    I will definitely try it out. We've settled on a mix of bibb, crimson butter, iceberg, lolla rossa, and red salad bowl. Makes a mean salad and enough variety for anything we put lettuce on.
