Off to Bed

The wind is whipping by and the snow banks are looming large...and all I can think about is building a raised bed.

As with most things, you will wish you made it bigger once it is done. 3 feet wide and 2 feet high are suggested for most gardeners who want to get started with a raised bed. But for serious folks, raised bed 4 feet wide and 10 or more feet long is just right.

I have my seeds (golden beets & purple carrots) my Organic Mechanics Premium Blend ( -- all I need is the wood and nice weather!

Also Snow days have turned into get creative days. Check out the video below to see inside The Garden Media Group. And don't forget to leave a comment.

Your garden looks nice. What are you using for the raised beds? In the picture it looks like wood and big rocks. How do you prevent the soil from seeping out? Is the bed waterproof?
