Have you ever wondered if raised beds were the answer to your garden issues? When Christian and I started our first garden on our homestead, we began with a traditional in-ground garden. After a somewhat comical mistake involving manure, we quickly had a yard growing in our garden. Certainly not an ideal situation. Though a temporary solution worked for a while, we discovered a deeper issue as a result of previous pesticide use. Enter raised beds. Listen today to find out if raised beds are the right solution for your homestead.
Some key highlights from today’s episode:
• How I poisoned my first garden
• How deep mulch saved my garden
• Why raised beds can heat the soil faster
• The benefits of a timed drip system
