Raised Bed Update

Postby terry08 » Mon Apr 22, 2019 7:25 am

Other than the mulch, and more marigolds and herbs, I think I am finished. 12 tomatoes, 6 squash, 12 cucumbers, bell pepper and banana pepper. The front boxes are bush snap beans. First time at raised beds. Hope for a good outcome, this cost a lot more than I anticipated.

Got to remove the stump in the first picture.

i saw a small raised bed in the neighborhood the other day.. had metal sides. supposedly it lets the sun heat up the soil quicker? Also, they had a bunch of milk jugs with water in the beds.. the sun heats the water during the day and helps keep the soil warmer in the cold nights. It's still getting below freezing here at night sometimes.

Guess it's done differently, in every region. The work is over and just waiting for the harvest. The deer enjoyed my garden last year and the neighbors. This one is right out side the kitchen window. So I can watch closely.

Yeah, that’s really pretty Terry. I think you will enjoy the raised beds. You will have to weed at some point, but it’s easier. Looks like you can add to that as time goes on (if needed).Image

I lay my frost covers over them if frost is possible. I’ve taken the arches up since the picture. You can put two together for taller plants, like big tomato plants, but mine are usually small enough that single arches are good.
