Raise Bed Gardening

Updated on February 24, 2014

How to Grow Vegetables

I love to grow fresh vegetables for the salads that we eat they taste so much better when they are fresh grown this makes them healthy to eat and they tastes so much better. I set up the beds with good dirt and then add compose mix this together and water it down and let it set.

I start the seeds in small growing containers using seed starter when the young plants get about two inches tall I transplant them into the prepared raise bed garden now we wait for the sun and water to make them grow when they reach about two feet tall we put the fertilizer to them this gets them to bloom and set the fruit especially tomatoes

I try to always grow tomatoes, romaine lettuce ,bell peppers, along with cucumbers this makes for a great salad I do not have enough room to grow corn but where I live we can always buy it from the fields when it comes in and there is nothing better to eat than fresh corn on the cob roasted on the grill.

I have another small garden that I can grow herbs in you know basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, mint, and dill whit all of these you can cook a lot of different tasty dishes believe me in the spring and early summer eating at my home is a great experience and we are able to catch fresh fish.

How to Make a Raised Bed Garden - Gardening in Small Spaces


When you are gardening in a small space you will need plenty of sun light at least six hours a day coming from the east and south in the spring of the year. You will also need plenty of water close by a hose if possible carrying water in a bucket gets old in a hurry.

I was lucky I had plenty of scrap lumber that I found on a construction site and the foreman gave it to me.I was able to construct a rectangular box I made mine 4 ft x 8 ft about 18 inches deep I then went to a garden store and purchased some hardware cloth I placed this in the bottom and up the sides I filled this with top soil and compose mixed together and I had my garden
