The project


I installed a galvanised steel raised bed measuring 900mm wide, 1200mm long and 300mm deep. I used sticks and dried leaves as a base and then added potting mix with sugarcane mulch. 






I have had a couple of good harvests of peas, beans and dill. My daughter loved taking care of the tomatoes and harvesting them.
