Raised Bed Garden- Step 1

Buy your materials:
  • 5- 4x8x12 boards ($45.00)
  • 1 scoop of top soil. (we bought ours from Pine Ridge in Salem in front of Lowe’s) ($45.00)
  • 4 bags of  Black Kow composted cow manure. (4 bags @ $5.99ea=$23.96)
For tips on how to make your boxes, please see the "Gardening Tips" tab above and click on the "Making a Raised Bed Garden" link. Dennis followed his own design, but I found this link very helpful. 
    We are making two raised beds.
    It is often recommended to support the corners of the box. Next step, prepare ground, add dirt and then the actual vegetables.
