Our garden beds are going in!!! - Part 1
From top to bottom:
We're using 13 1/2' x 3' wide plain Galvalume sheets, ripping them in half lengthways, making 2 bends in each half to form 2 "L" shapes and then screwing the halves together to form a 9' x 3' bed that is 18" high.
When screwed together they form a sturdy but lightweight, raised metal bed that will outlast me!!
Then it will be a matter of filling and planting seedlings.
The dirt is here!
16 yards of fresh topsoil! Now to begin creation of raised beds - Starting Sat. as we have collected 38 sheets of Galvalume with which to make them. This will yield approx 32 beds of 9' x 3' x about 17 - 18" deep, with extra panels to re-roof an old shelter in the pasture!! YAY!! We have enough soil for 16 beds, right now. More soil will be delivered later along with more metal, as our total veggie and herb beds will be 56, when all done! Then, on to the cut flower garden!!! SPRING HAS SPRUNG!!!
