    Yup, they are cross sections of bell peppers.. I figured it out after I look at it some more..

  2. growingyourgreens says:

    The raised beds in this video were made with 2×6 lumber that was stacked 3 tall, so about 18″ tall overall. Please check my other videos for an episode I talk about how high to build your raised beds. For MOST things, 12″ will be sufficient.

    Those sculptures in the background are sliced peppers – red, orange, green and yellow. John, check out my “Sunflowers in the Yarden 2010” video on my channel. I planted lots of veggies in my front yard. Cheers!
