Converting to wicking beds End of summer.

Hi everyone.  Well, what a beautiful day today was compared with the last couple of shockers.  So hot the previous week that I think I almost died :) and the cool change on Saturday felt like the onset of winter.  Lucky for me, the beds continued happily on their way and most things survived.   Only casualty was my broccoli and cauliflower seedlings.  I planted seeds and they just shriveled up and died or didn't even come up -> too hot I guess.  So, I gave in and bought green dragon…
