Planters/Raised Beds

I am trying something a bit different this year. I am older now and bending over in the garden to plant and weed just ain't my thing anymore. I have access to these 2x4 ft wooden frames and if I stack a few up, they make a decent planter. Going to plant some smaller stuff in them....beans, onions, carrots, radishes etc. Have to see how it works out.

Built another more and stained them.....


I will grow potatoes, squash, zuchinni etc in the big garden, Small stuff like beans, radish etc in the planters. The bending over to do the weeding is the main issue with me. I don't spray for weed control.


I found a bunch more of these frames. I am going to make raised beds out of them. One built already. I moved some asparagus into it. will see how they come up in the spring.

Almost finished planting my raised beds/planters....Tomatoes going in tomorrow. It's been a bit cool so I have been covering them at night.
