Just the beginning of raised bed gardening. A little costly, but I am already loving it.

Never thought I would pay $ 200.00 for such a small amount of dirt. But, no more tilling.

I am a little cheaper.
I have an old tub and a piece of concrete culvert I plant tomatoes and squash in.
Also have an old washing machine tub I plant tomatoes in.

Looks good to me, I grow eating tomatoes in the feed tubs and have a couple of raised beds for other things. Most of my produce comes from a young man that has a 3 acre field he farms. During the last 3 years I have donated him a 1 year old garden tiller, disk to pull behind his tractor, and a section harrow. He gives me the choice of his fresh veggies as they come in season and I also do some canning for his family. I am too old and weak to have my own garden. Our fruits are picked up locally from friends and made into jelly. jams and preserves: a lot of them are made low sugar or NO sugar for the friends that have diabetes.

That’s cheap. Maybe a little redneck.
Truth be told, the concrete culvert idea is really good! I’m gonna do that.

I’ve finished planting. Tomatoes, squash, zucchini, okra, eggplant, peas, corn, cabbage (all season), and basil. Tomatoes are bush goliath, celebrity, Cherokee purple, and one other variety (forgot).

I was messing with you buddy. It’s great hearing about all the different ways to garden. Those are super ideas and, yes, very economical.

One thing I have a problem with is fire ants. Both with regular garden and raised beds. How do you get rid of them without chemicals affecting vegetables?

Since I started using knockout (granular insect control) I don't have any on my hill. I use Bifen on fence lines and knockout on open areas

Flipper, I use compressed orange oil, mixed with sorghum molasses and water. It will kill them dead, and no chemicals to deal with. You can find ratios on YouTube.

You can use plain molasses, like the one in the grocery called grandma's. The orange oil melts fat, it melts the protective coating from their body literally burns them alive. Some good videos on YouTube.

Yeah, I am even tired of the cold and you’re dealing with snow. Bet you don’t have fire ants though!

Cheapest I have found is on amazon. $ 25.00 for the 32 oz bottle. You use 1 Tbls per gallon for each hill. But it kills them dead. Not sure what the molasses is for other than fire ants hate it. Some folks broadcast the molasses granules on there lawns with great success. Just Google cold press orange oil to check prices.
