Raised Bed Gardens
This spring I built several wooden raised bed vegetable gardens so we could finally start growing some of our own vegetables. Raised bed vegetable gardens offer several benefits including better drainage and better access for weeding and harvesting the vegetables.
Tomatoes In Raised Bed Gardens
Our tomato plants are growing very well in the raised bed vegetable gardens. As you can see in the photo we planted six tomato plants and they are over 3 feet tall. There are tons of green tomatoes growing on all three different varieties (cherry, early and large steak tomatoes).
Having the raised beds has made weeding much easier. The raised beds also keep everything contained so mowing the lawn is easy as well. Early in the spring we had to deal with frost and the raised beds were much easier to attach protective plastic to. I imagine that will come in handy this fall when the first frost happens as well.
