Raised Beds

Raised beds are very functional, neat, and orderly for everyone--from the home gardener to the market farmer. From simple to complex, they all work the same. You can use every inch of space and not worry about weeds, so long as what you're growing is weed free. Raised beds give a little extra shelter to your plants and things just seem to grow better. We at Oregon Squash King (now Beyond Organic) use them to start our bare root transplants. To grow greens, raised beds make harvesting and tending chores much easier. They are very good for over winter crops like leeks. They are a little above ground and cold air will go down. No homestead should be with out one--or 5! Thank you and happy growing!!! the Squash King
