    I love all your videos so much. What kind of trolls are putting dislikes on these.

    Been watching and subscriber of your videos from beginning. Love your videos. Curious if you use the Ruth Stout method. I know you somewhat use what she did. Just curious? Big Fan. Keep it up.

    Hi, I saw you used treated pine 4x4s (you didn't fool me, Ha Ha). will that cause problems? Also #2>) You inspired me to raise me beds more (2 yrs. ago I put up 12" beds, but I used treated 2×6 and painted them so no bad chemicals would reach the plants. Now if I put cedar 2×6 on top and put in the corner 4×4 (Now there are none) would they last about as long since I used treated and painted pine on the bottom? ( I hate to throw out all that good lumber!)
    Thanx a lot for all your videos. I'm a fan. (Marty Miller 75 y.o. Evansville, IN)

    They throw away dryers in my apartment complex all the time…. and for some reason the inner drum is commonly out sitting Next to the machine…. I took one and it makes a perfect raised be (with drainage holes!) I’m not sure how hard or easy it is to take out the drum your self but it’s an idea and also there are also probably places that have all the washers getting thrown away I don’t know where but my apartment complex is one place LOL

    This is wht I've been looking for.

    Excellent Video for the raised garden beginner like me. I've gardened for several years and couldn't figure out why we got such poor vegetable growth results after 3 years. The results of a raised garden are so much better! I can't wait to build my own raised garden and get back to gardening my own fruits and vegetables. Doug and Stacy are an inspiration!

    Doug, i am going to have raised beds this year! Put the lumber on husbands honey-do-list!! LOL. I have a question: U say to use "hardware cloth". The cloth keeps the bad bugs out BUT, does it keep out the earth worms? I've heard that earth worms n castings r good for the soil.What u say, Sir?

    Great video

    Doug, I'm new to your channel. I noticed you used Cedar for all of the sides of your raised beds, but then used pressure treated lumber for the braces? Wouldn't this have a direct effect on the chemicals in your growing soil? Not trying to be cynical, but I am curious as to why you did this.

  • David G 6 days ago

    Its not just "shrinking." its also saw loss! You must be a millionaire! Cedar is NOT CHEAP! One 2x6x8 cedar board at Lowe's is $12.88 plus tax. So 2 layer bin would be 6 boards. That is $77.28 per bin not counting taxes and screws just for the structure! That is outrageous. I used 5/4 x 6×8 pressure treated deck boards and the cost was around $24 ! NO the chemicals will NOT contaminate your food! That is all BS! They don't use the arsenic /copper anymore and even when they did the plants won't take it up as long as there is sufficient phosphorous in the soil. Today's pressure treated wood is safe to use for gardens. A 5/4 board (1 1/8") thick is plenty for a 4×8 raised bed. $24 instead of $77,, I'm ALL IN! As for the copper used in the PT wood.. copper is a NATURAL MINERAL! just like Iron and magnesium.

    When you did back to Eden gardening did you plant in the wood chips or pull them aside and plant in soil? Im trying to figure it out . I've seen a lot of videos on it .
