The weather has been great here in New York so we were able to set up our raised bed garden last weekend. We got our kit from burpee.com which was very easy to put together and took only about an hour. The hard part was filling it with so much soil! We ended up using a 2:1 ratio of potting soil to compost which totaled to 18 bags—12 bags of Dr. Earth vegetable garden mix potting soil and 6 bags of Dr. Earth all purpose compost . Although the initial set up of my garden was not inexpensive I know in the long run I’ll save money and it will be a joy to be able to pick dinner right from my garden!
