The new (old) tires have all been planted. The 5 we found along the side of the road also had horse manure mixed in while they were being filled with dirt. It will be interesting to see how the plants in those beds compare to the beds in which I used commercial fertilizer in.

But I'm quite not getting why there is such a discrepancy in the growth rate of the Golden Beans in this bed. Notice it gets taller on the left side of the photo?
