Building Raised Beds - 2 more under construction.

We built two more raised bed.   The soil is way to rocky and hard to grow anything so using raised bed.   I took 3 pieces of lumber for each bed.  The lumber is 8 feet long - 2 feet thick and 10 inches high.  I cut one in half to make the end pieces     The finished bed is 8 feet by 4 feet and 10 inches high which allows me to plant some bulbs fairly deep with still a nice amount of soil below them.   I bolt the ends in with 3 inch wood screws.  The cost is around 35.00 per bed for bed.   See my post for gopher guard to make sure no critters dig up into the bed from below.
