Well done @Meling and many thanks for sharing.
Raised garden beds are particularly popular with visitors to the site at the moment as there is a significant increase in interest about growing your own food. I'm sure plenty of people will take inspiration from your work.
Looking forward to seeing what you tackle next.
Looks really good @Meling. Nice one. 👍
I can't read the labels in your photo and I was just wondering what you will be growing in there?
Hi Rattle, this is a first growing anything from seed so to my surprise I have been sprouts! I planted broccoli, snow peas, Japanese turnip, Bok Choi, garlic and bitter melon.
thanks for liking
Oh, nice @Meling. Do let us know how you go a bit further down the track when they really get growing.
I've always planted seedlings and this is my first year of planting vegies from seed, so I was pretty excited to see things sprout.
Good luck with yours. 🙂
Maybe you can help? I have sprouts popping up and probably too many seeds close Together. Is it ok to feather them out, they are about 10cm high ?
I'm no expert @Meling, but I'm of the understanding that you certainly can and it's good practice to thin them out.
Just be really careful with the roots and the seedling itself as they are such delicate little things.
I've thinned a couple of things out so far and transplanted them where there's more room in the bed or into another container.
Good luck! 🙂
Well done @Meling I’ve had this on my to-do list for a while but couldn’t find the non-arsenic sleepers at my local Bunnings. The only ACQ sleepers is a small prefabricated veggie patch they sell in the gardening section. However, I want to make a big one like you have. Could you send me a picture of it on the Bunnings website please? My other option is going to a local timber yard. Thanks in advance

Hello, thanks for your enquiry. I see that Mitchell Mc has replied below the posts with some information about the Bunnings timber. The timber I used was the sienna copper treated hardwood in this link. It was available on shelf at the Bunnings at Belrose.
Thanks Mitchellmc for the information
Good luck DH-dyer
