Here is my new fall garden video. I shot another one today, but that won't be ready for a while.

Good job!

A couple of questions.

First, for the hoops in the beds, do you just stick pvc in the beds and bend it?
Also, do you have any concerns about using PVC in the gardens?
What is the material you use to cover the pipes with?

And what are you using for mulch? It was hard to tell what it was.

I was inspired to try the Asian mix, looks very good!

My hoop covers have the pvc stuck into slightly larger pvc pipes as flag pole stands attached to the outside of my beds. The pvc never touches the dirt. My blog has pics.

I forgot to plant my Asain veggies. I will need to do that. Thanks for another cool video and reminder for fall planting.

Have a question, what do you use to keep slugs off? The slugs attack my bac chois with a vengence, that's why I let it slip my mind. I just use the iron bait, but was wondering if something else worked better?

They are indeed PVC. If you check out my Raised Bed's in the City video you can see lots more on them. You can't worry about PVC, it is everywhere and in everything. The much is Cocoa mulch, my favorite! The plastic is a thick mil translucent plastic (I found it in the Paint aisle).

And thanks for the kind words, I need it.
