I am putting in 5 small 3'x 2' raised grow beds for my 5 Grand-Monsters (grandsons.) They all live on the homestead, 2 in their home behind ours and three in their home across the property from us. We will be digging out the grass and filling it with a mix on composted cow manure, composted peat humus and potting soil. They are all excited. I decided to put all the raised gardens close to mine, so I can make sure they survive, even if the new wears off for them. Each grow-bed was cut from a 10' long 1"x 6".
