    We are moving to Pine Island, just west of Cape Coral, next year where I am told they have a severe nematode problem. We have been exploring raised beds and other options for our vegetable garden; this could be our solution! Would have to come up with a watering system but I think this is a great idea. One question, what are the wine bottles doing?? Thanks,

      @Patricia Rauscher Just put there to give people some idea of the size of the plantings. Of course they were consumed after the garden was planted and growing! :)
