I have had large gardens in the past when I lived in the country. I now live in town and thought I would try something that wasn't 1/2 an acre. My first attempt at raised beds. the plants are doing wonderful and I have hardly had a weed to tend to. Sure beats hours bonding with my hoe. In the few days since I have done the photos the plants are now as tall as the fence. Now waiting for all of the yummy foods to arrive.
