My new raised beds are planted

Post  sfgbeginner on 6/9/2014, 10:07 pm

Well ... my new raised beds are planted.  They are not as wide as I had wanted, but they are planted.  I'm almost certain I will end up having an overcrowding problem, but I will learn for next season.  It is what it is.  My OCD will kick in tomorrow and I will clean up the edges :-)  Here are some pictures:

The boxes look wonderfully sturdy. Are you sure your trellises will be able to support much? They look frail.

Take some wire or strong string and go from the second or third cross wire from the bottom and take the wire or string to the outside of the box and fasten. That should give enough support.

Those boxes look really nice, SFGBeginner!  I'm sure you'll enjoy them greatly.
