Good Day,

No time like the present to start gardening.  I'm attaching some information on raised beds and a planning calendar.  I personnally have grown quite a few things in my raised beds.  Sweet peas, green beans, tomatoes, cumcumbers, raspberries, strawberries, asparagus and herbs have been very successful in my gardens.  I also recommend you test your soil so that you know what you may need to add.

I hope this helps.  Thanks for using our service.
