New raised beds
This year James and I decided to put in new raised beds for our vegi garden. Over the years I have had raised beds constructed of lumber, they worked, but never lasted more then a few years and the cost was high. We decided to construct our beds out of concrete. They are working out very well! James made forms, poured the concrete mix, let it dry. With in a day we were laying down weed guard and adding our secret soil mix (actually it isn't a secret, but it sounded good). The pictures show how well things are coming along, we should have a nice harvest this summer. Tomatoes, peppers, onions, green beans, radishes and a few other things are shown in these pictures. Tomato cages are constructed of large pieces of white wire fencing, it is just made round and wired to its self, these are much better for support then the little towers. We do use the towers however to support our peppers. James made an iron trellis to allow the green beans to climb. Iron trellis of all shapes and sizes are available from our Old Soul Studios inventory. Happy gardening & Healthy eating~Jacque & James
