Raised beds in backyard
One holiday when our three sons were visiting we had them build two raised planting beds along our back fence. The original intent was to use these for flowers, but after the first planting of tulips and pansies was destroyed by our pet chickens, we gave up on that idea. We then raised a crop of corn in one of the beds. Now the beds are used as part of our composting process.
