Hi all ,a cool August morning.A needed rain last night.Its a bit cooler for this time of year. Today I thought we would look into raised beds. There are many types and sizes.You can make your own or buy them ready made. I’m going to cover the ones I’ve built and why I built them that way.I’ll say right off,I’m not a expert when it comes to building things. That’s the point. If you don’t tell yourself you can’t do it,

you could save yourself a lot of money.The size and shapes are endless when it comes to raised beds. I built mine with the thought  of ease of getting to it and working in it. Such things like reaching across your raised bed.I built mine so you could easily reach the center from both sides. The other is make it easy on yourself. I made mine higher to make it easier on the back.See insert for some of the crops we grew in our raised beds. Next time I’ll tell you how I built my raised bed. Thanks for stopping see you next time.
