    Which is a better headline?

    Extending the garden season by months
    Getting the most out of a raised bed garden

    Why not,  'Extend the garden season by months using raised garden beds'?

      Jodah, I like your suggestion. I had a similar heading and it was too long. As Dolly says, I'm trying to cram 10 pounds of sugar in a 5 pound sack.

    I like the first one - "Extending the garden season by months".

    I like the first one better, but the second one has more keywords that people would search.

      Thank you. That is what I wanted to know. I wrote the story in response to a request for help. So, I thought I would share it. But it benefits no one if they don't see or read my blindingly brilliant and astounding acumen. smile

      Or follow Jodah's suggestion, I think it would work well.

      I like the second one as the main title and the first one as a secondary subtitle within the article.

    "Getting the most out of a raised bed garden" is much more descriptive, and would therefore be the one I'd personally click on. "Extending the garden season by months" refers to a potentially huge subject that may or may not involve raised beds, and that raises questions about growing zones and things like that -- i.e., I live in Wyoming, so the only way to extend the growing season by months is to have a well-insulated greenhouse.

    If you want more, perhaps "Getting the most out of a raised garden bed: How to extend the garden season"

      Thank you. I appreciate your comments and perspective. I am curious, what zone are you in? How long is your garden season.

      US Zone 4 smile -- the outdoor season usually runs from sometime in May to about the end of October. We lost it at the beginning of October this year thanks to a freak snowstorm sad
