This is my first of three sample beds that I am trying this year. I work for a large lumber company so most of my material is Oak and Pine downfall mixed with some larger felled trees that I cleaned up off our new property. I am having a some top soil delivered, our soil in this part of our property is mostly clay. I plan to cover what can be seen here in manure then top with soil. Any advice is certainly welcome.
Honestly I haven't got that far yet.......I am thinking berries on one of them for sure......want to try melons, squash, zucchini, tomatoes, marigolds, herbs.......I have more wants than space I'm afraid. The beds are 13' long and 6' between the stakes. I am thinking they will be 4' high by the time I get the manure and top soil in place.
