"Wow, just re-reading here. My raised beds were for our herbs and Cantaloupe, not the whatever it ended up showing. Due to the slow start of spring this year (batteries are a little worn down) right now most of our early start peas and eggplant,…"

"We did a couple of raised beds also for herbs and for our centuple. We used cedar to keep the wood from rotting out and attracting some unwanted insects, and we defiantly did not want treated lumber. Our boxes are in their third year, and are still…"

"http://www.espoma.com/p_consumer/tones_garden.html   I believe this is the organic fertilizer I grabbed at the local gardening place.  I didn't do any research on it but it seems cool. "

"Hey, Ryan: Thanks so much for sharing these photos. What a great reminder that we can use any and all available space to grow good food, and I bet these beds inspire a few of your neighbors to try gardening themselves. You're spreading the…"

Raised Beds and CSA

Spring has sprung in my little corner of Western Pennsylvania and I am super excited for all my projects and ideas for the future.  My first project this spring is more raised beds for vegetables. Last year I removed some bushes from around the house and put in some raised beds.  This was great and I really…See More

Ryan Lucas replied to kristin clapper's discussion 'Bagels... receipe anyone?' in the group BREAD!
"So the big difference (from my observations) from a bread recipe is the absence of dairy (i.e. milk and butter).  I may have to try this soon.  Thanks all for the posts."

Hi Ryan.

Sorry I am a little late in welcoming you to Homegrown.  We've been busy getting the house ready to paint and are still building our raised bed garden that I finally received permission to have from my HOA.  Your raised beds look great, I love the wood look when it comes to raised beds but I'm using header block since I live in Florida and don't think wood will hold up here.
