    @LSUTigerMom thx! i used horse manure mixed with soil for my raised beds, and now i add chopped up leaves every fall with more manure, and an organic time release fertilizer. i’m not sure about pure manure for a garden bed, you need a mix of nutrients.

  7. LSUTigerMom says:

    Love your video. Would it be OK for me to fill them with just composted horse manure?
    What are your dogs names? They’re so pretty! Great camera-girl, too!

    If you don’t use the brackets in the corners, then don’t forget to coat the corner blocks in oil as well. They will rot first and your bed will literally fall apart at the seems. Also, a single row of cinder blocks is an idea. No mortar, just jam them close together, then you get the added benefit of planting things like garlic or marigolds, etc. in the cells of the blocks around your bed to help deter insects. Don’t think it would help with the bear though. LOL :)
    PS. Good looking beds!

    Hi, Have you thought of looking at more current sustainable growing which allows you to grow year-round regardless of where you live? How about lowering overhead and producing your current production on one tenth the acreage. Not till, no weeds, no expensive equipment and bountiful harvest! I speak from forty years of commercial experience. Come visit us! I look forward to seeing you! The Garden Master and his Bucket Garden. TheGardenMaster com
