    I was in the hospital and am just catching up on your videos now. I'm so excited for you! And you make me so excited for my own veggie garden (although in MA, there's still snow on the ground). I'd love to have a cup of coffee with you and just plant stuff…I think you would be so fun to hang out with (your Mom, too! She's the sweetest). TFS 🙂

    How is the ground prepped under the raised beds. It looked like you may have had crushed stone ?? – then landscape fabric ?? Do you think an 8 inch deep bed with no where else to go beneath (if fabric and or crushed stone is under it) is deep enough? I know yours are 12 inch deep… and would be great, but I cannot seem to find 2×12 or anything close to that around here.

    The yellowing coule be caused by a parasitic green algae. If you think this is the issue try spraying copper sulphate solution onto it

    Wow! this raised bed is gorgeous! Love the add on trellis for beans, peas or even my nasturtiums. This would make a nice addition to our back yard. thank-you LGarden!

    Thanks for the video, I have been trying to figure out soil combinations and ratios for raised beds also and loved this video, gives me lots of ideas . Keep up the good work, much appreciated !

    When I did raised beds I also used a mix of top soil, manure and compost but I had to do it all myself (perhaps I should open a Company in the UK selling raised beds mix!!)  Also, are you intending to rotate your crops?  I use a 5 year rotation so that brassica's go to Legumes & squashes which go to Onions which go to potatoes and their family which go to roots which go to brassica's.  It works really well for me and helps to reduce the pests and disease that comes with vegetable gardening 🙂

    That will be different, a black picket fence. Have you seen one somewhere before? It could be pretty with light color roses.

    Hi Laura, as you planted your north poles last year and this is their first full growing season, what percentage of their total (to mature) growth do you think will happen in this first year? Will they grow quickly and then peak and slowly “fill out” over the next few years – or will they grow and spread slowly over a few years? Xx

    You always have amazing ideas!!!! Never thought of balancing different garden beds! Are you growing tomatoes?

    When you built the raised beds from garden supply, what did you use to prevent soil from seeping through the cracks of each slat of wood? I am going to build raised beds on a hill where I am going to need to place another slat of wood in the front to keep the bed level. I am planting it near trees so I don’t want to disturb the tree roots.

    Remember those white daikon radishes, and plant them near your squash plants. They're a decent deterrent for squash bugs, which can decimate your squash plants.

    After several years of losing, trying organic gardening to wire worms, Japanese beetles, extreme hot weather and wind storms plus back and knees injuries I quit. Also rising water and electricity bills, it is not easy folks. These are the facts they don’t tell you about. You blow away your monthly retirement money and left owing medical bills.
