When Sweetheart took a job on the moon. We had to seriously consider what we would do for a garden. Let me explain about living on the moon. The moon is actually on earth. The sun is so hot and the lack of water that everything disintegrates. No traditional decomposition of rotting and turning into black rich-smelling soil. Any and every thing gets baked to disintegration. The sun skips the decay process completely.
The funny thing is when we see water or soil we smell it and look at it longingly knowing the power of that black beautiful dirt.
On our moving day, we purchased with our Pennsylvania Grandpa garden boxes from the Amish. The boxes are made out of insulated garage door panel. The length is 11 feet.
|11 foot section|
|3 foot section|
|Angle iron inside the box with the bolts on the outside|
Our growing season is 60 days give or take a day. We can plant and harvest if we are diligent 4 times a year. We just harvested corn and have watermelon, cantaloupe, beans, basil, and various squashes growing.
