I was scrolling through Marketplace on Facebook and found some raised beds for sale.  She accepted my offer of $30 for both.  I think it helped that they had been up for sale a week.  They are small (4 by 4) but yet just the size we need to determine whether we want to do this or not.  

So far, we have filled them with the dirt left over from a project at my daughter's house and what little compost we had in the bin.  That has left them each over half full.  I can't believe how much dirt it actually takes to fill one.  We have plenty of time so we decided not to worry about it just yet.  I would like to go get some mulch now to go around them before the weeds pop back up.

We put them at the end of the garden where it tends to flood the most in the Spring.   I'm excited because my hope is that this will give us a earlier start next year.  I can imagine snow peas, lettuce, and potatoes growing there.  I also would love one of those trellis that go between the beds.  Some research and more work is coming my way!

That’s great about your new beds.
I did errands and husband planted fall potatoes and that’s the excitement here this morning

oh I wish we could plant fall potatoes. Just not enough growing season. Errands are a lot of work that's for sure.

What a great find!

My raised beds are on their last legs this year. We think we need to take them apart & build new for next year. I'd love to be able to get that done during the winter...our winters are mild enough to get a lot of outdoor work done without dealing with growing brush or bothersome ticks.

I'd like to have this kind of raised bed. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/418482990379689133/

If you search 'planter wall block garden' online there are so many ideas. At my Lowes the blocks are $2.98 each & they will cut boards there the length that I want....so I could put this together all by myself easily.

I also think I'll put down plastic around the perimeter under the edges of any new beds I make. I'd love to top it with pavers but that is beyond my budget. I have so much trouble with grass growing up into my raised beds.

It's hot here....the humidity is back & my poor grandson, I refused to take him out to play today.

I think I know what your talking about. I've seen those raised beds to that you put together easy. That was on our minds until we found these. We are not carpenters so that was right up our alley.
It's very sad when it's too hot for them to be outside.

Belinda said...

Those beds look great, Vickie. I can't wait to see what you grow in them.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Its always fun to try something new!

Kathy said...

Great deal on the raised beds!
They will give you a great start on growing next year.

Funny I'm excited for next year.
