I have a 10 inch Raised Bed its about 10-12 ft. long x 5 ft. wide..Brand new to this raised bed thing and wonderin the best way to plant cukes and tomatoes. perhaps a row of bush beans or perhaps istead of bush could be better to plant pole beans. Anyways I may have a lot of questions to this new type of gardening. Cool

The best way how? For what purpose? Your question is a bit vague, especially since cukes and tomatoes are very different plants. For instance, people generally plant tomatoes very deep, so much of the stem goes underground. With cukes, it is sometimes said that a damp stem will quickly kill a cucumber. So ... completely opposite techniques come about depending on the plant. Beans are yet another type of plant.

If you have some specifics for us to tangle with, we'll better know how to help you with answers.

I grow pole beans mainly because it gives me more space in the bed. I also grow cukes and tomatoes vertically. Is that what you mean?

Take your time, browse through forum, use the search feature and welcome to the forum.

Reacon, Welcome to the Forum!  glad you\'re here  Do you have a copy of All New Square Foot Gardening, 1st or 2nd Edition, by Mel Bartholomew? If not, I really recommend that you get a copy. It has a lot of good information for raised bed gardening.
