Red Neck Raised Bed

This bed is 10 feet long by 4 feet wide. It is 3 feet deep. I used a scoop shovel and my JD lawn mower and trailer to haul composted horse manure to fill the bed. Yes, it took a lot of it to fill the bed. I have yet to come up with a trellis to hold the cukes, squash, gourds and tomatoes. Any great ideas?

    I have an old crib bed-spring I'm going to put to use as a trellis...

    This is so great! I have access to horse manure- just have to get creative like you and make a planting bed. Thanks for a workable idea.
