Got my garden started inside this year. Most this grow light got a lot of good reviews by potheads so, I figured it must be good. May get a frost tonight, but, after that these plants are going in the ground.

Night time Mid to high 20's last week. Low 30's last few days. Rule of thumb is wait till 6/1 to put them outside. I watch the weather and try to shoot for mid to late May, but have burned several times. Had 6" of snow on Father's Day one year and lost it all and too late to start over.

Clay doesn't drain and it's easy to get the right soil without digging forever

We bought this house last Summer, the beds came with the house. But the ground is mostly a red clay soil, so a lot of folks have raised beds in the hood. I planted 3 citrus trees too, I had really clear some soil to amend it (so I thought).
Not sure I'd have the gumption to actually install them, but don't mind maintaining them. Nice having the drip system on a timer too!
