Here is the garden.  I took some 2X12′ boards 10 feet long and made this raised bed.  It was really simple to make, just takes some time.  Using some galvanized connectors from The Home Depot and 1 foot long cut-offs, I made the joins and filled it with dirt. 13 Tons of it!  100 wheelbarrows full! Actually it wasn’t as bad as you would think.  I had a little help too. 

I know that many people like to make their beds fairly narrow for easy planting and harvesting without stepping into the garden. I plan to just lay some wood planks or stepping stones down for easy travel in the garden.  

Over the last few weeks, I have met so many first-time gardeners. I hope they all join the Suburban Gardeners Facebook group and share their stories, methods, failures, and successes so we can all learn from each other. I want to see pictures of your gardens!
