Planning A Raised Bed Garden

February 6, 2013

If you’re thinking about making a vegetable garden for the first time, the Internet offers boundless resources.

I like the plans offered by enjoy-your-garden.com. Their bold graphics and simple instructions can get you started.

Two plans are for small gardens (10 x 10) and one is large with space for permanent edibles such as artichokes and rhubarb.

Another resource is Square Foot Gardening (website) and book. Start small and build on your success.
