Raised Beds

Posted on by Frank Cochrane


Julie, Garth and I managed to build the 1st 72ft by 3ft raised bed in the big greenhouse, divided them into 12ft sections, also managed to get to of the beds prepared and planted with some mild mix lettuce transplants, salad turnip transplants, and Kale.  Used 2" rough Hemlock for the beds, then dug them out 12 - 14" placed 6" of hay in bottom, then filled back in. We also attached the whole every 12ft or so to the side of the greenhouse.  I dare the winds to try to lift that side up again.  Just kidding...please don't try.
