Build a Raised Garden Bed and grow vegetables in the city. More raised bed vids: https://goo.gl/XJxVtm Subscribe to our channel here: http://goo.gl/3zM702 Raised beds are a good solution for urban gardening, as the soil in the city can be contaminated. For Brian’s bed, we used the lasagna gardening method to create the garden soil, it worked great.

    Those beds look great! Interesting info about the soil, I've never thought that could be an issue

    If I am not mistaken, you are speaking from a fairly urban area. Hence that you filled your raised beds with store bought soil, which I cannot afford. Oddly enough I live in a very rural area. I do not know how to appeal to local folks with considerable acreage to donate top soil to me? I wish I knew what incentives I could offer them.

    And the weed barrier fabric great suggestion? I deal with burrowing animals, with which I intend to coexist. Any suggestions?

    this is awesome!

    That is one great garden, and the white wall is genius.
    There certainly looks like a very wide variety of crops growing too.
    Great video Eric.

    Very nice looking set up. It makes me dream of warmer weather.

    Nice. I'm going to try a raised bed made from patio blocks with a top frame if spring ever comes here. I need a couple raised beds because of clay soil. I think in many cases they are overhyped, but it sounds like yours are necessary.

    Did you, or Brian, add earth worms to the raised bed. I am assuming the weed blocker would prevent worms coming up from the local soil.
    Thanks, Bob

    Great idea on saving money and reusing stuff. But I know you are not growing peppers outside in NYC in April, LOL.

    Excellent work.

    what you could do is fill the bottom with organic wood material like branches, stomps, wood chips like from a tree service, this will soak up water when it rains and store some of that for the plants to use, saving water. just stay clear of treated wood chips you may get in the bags .
    other thought is to use galvanized half round cellar window wells, bolt them together for circles or other shapes to reduce wood rot and not using pressure treated wood that can leach into veggies.

    What kind of soil did you use in the bags, just regular black dirt, the fancy name brand stuff, just plain fill?
