Dry - Warm - Cool - Pest-free - Productive - Practical ... All Are Possible
It's the gardener's dream – dry, warm earth in early spring. The seeds and sets were ordered one gray January day; now they're in hand. But outside ... it's raining. It's been raining. Tilling is impossible, yet the calendar pages turn. Soon the window of ideal planting time will close, and crops of peas and potatoes and spinach and lettuce and broccoli and cabbage will be curtailed – or denied – by the heat of summer.
What might have been ...
If only there were a way to dry out a patch of earth at will. To contradict the uncooperative conditions. To control one's seasons, water demands, and pest and weed pressures.
With the deep raised-bed, you don't have to get down on the ground to weed or harvest or water. You can erect the structures on soil too grassy, too hard-pan, too poor or too stony to till and improve. You can stop wasting time taking care of aisleways between beds - just place them a mower-friendly distance apart.
Why bemoan the vagaries of the weather? You don't have to give in!
