If you are thinking about starting a vegetable garden, now is the time to plan. I highly recommend that you build raised beds. You can grow more vegetables in a smaller area and control weeds and soil conditions

    Good idea Jenni. They just have to be portable enough to move outside in the spring. Thanks for the comment.

    I cheat on raised beds by using straw bales, which reminds me - I need to get a couple more.

    What purpose do the corner posts serve? I'm trying to figure out what all types of wood I can use to construct my beds. I have a variety of scrap including plywood. Need to make some raised beds but need to keep it to what I have on hand.

      Sandra Cook I did not post this but I would say it is to enclose it later if needed with a hardware cloth to keep out deer, rabbits, or other critters. it would be very easy to staple the wire too and very sturdy

    I used concrete mixing tubs they come in 2 sizes and are much cheaper and durable than what was available. They are back near the concrete.
