Raised bed planting


A raised bed planter box is a convenient way for us to grow healthy edibles without (we rent) digging up too much dirt. As we scavenge for most of the materials for the planter, we can start our seeds. Here, we’ve started- pak choi, cherry tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, squash, dill, and a mesclun mix in jiffy peat pots. Found watering them with the spray bottle was time overkill. Now the seedlings are resting in an inch of water in a shallow tupperware where they can draw water up as needed.
