    Greetings from South Carolina.
    I have been gradually turning my garden into one that looks like your photos and use your “Raised Row Gardening” book as my primary guide.
    Built stake a cage supports for my tomatoes and peppers, which are working out just fine. Walking rows are wood chips and I mulch with straw, built a soaker hose watering system.

    Questions:
    What do you do with your straw mulch at season end? Logic indicates that if you dispose of finished tomato plants by burning to avoid spreading disease you would also want to dispose of the mulch beneath them in a similar way rather than putting the straw in the compost bin?

    Also, continually adding wood chips to my walking rows would build up over time as earlier layers decompose into good mulch for weeds. Do you ever remove the wood chips and replace entirely with new? Would you add decomposed wood chips to the compost bin?
    Thanks,
    Doug Clinton
