now I can see how it's done. No one here plants the way you do. I can see where it is an advantage to raise the beds and make the most of space. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

Most of the brassicas are planted through weed suppresant material and covered by fine mesh against the cabbage white butterfly. ( The gas bottle has a flame wand on it for weed control )
