This farm girl has been trying to encourage (maybe it could be classified as bugging) her husband for the last year or so, to help build some raised beds. Today, I want to send out a “Thank you” to my hubby for a job well done! I have already experienced the ease of planting and now to watch those vegetables grow…I can’t wait.
Corners for my new raised beds arrived from Gardener’s Supply Company.
Wood for our new raised beds. We chose cedar boards so we didn’t have to worry about chemicals leeching into the soil.
We decided to start with three 4 x 16 foot beds this year. Our grandson was a great little helper!
Our completed raised beds just waiting to be planted. Filling it with good soil is an important step. Read more on this in our Recipe for Good Soil blogpost.
