AutoGardens- Early June 2012- More photos,* videos* and new approach on watering

A pretty picture to start......

Step garden with dianthus (had overwintered in the step garden), New Guinea impatiens (new this year), and regular impatiens (new this year)

Now a few videos to describe the system...

And finally, some more photos.....

View of Autogardens in the Nyack community garden.  Note the addition of green outdoor  carpeting (fake grass) between the racks.  It is hard to tell how much the plants have grown since the last photo but trust me...they have!

First bean pods

First green tomato.  Can you find it?
