people making fun of my raised beds
Last week I finished building and filling my new raised vegetable beds in my new garden. Every one (mostly family) that has come to my house since then has laughed at my boxes. These are old-school gardeners who have for decades planted their veggies directly in the ground.
I never really came to question this, but what advantages do raised beds provide? My primary reason was because of the use of PT wood for my garden fence posts. I'm sure there are many other good reasons. I just need some ammo to quiet the doubters.
