Raised Bed Garden Boxes

Completed two raised beds, garden boxes for 2011 growing season. 2.5' by 9.5'. The posts are 4'3" plastic lumber which hopefully will not rot or require replacement anytime soon. The post are buried 1'3". With 4 foot center posts, we will be able to drape 10' visqueen over these to create mini green houses.

Recent weather has been very nice: 40s in the morning and 60s in the afternoon. Fall is nearly done. Still getting solar power with one recent generator run in the past 6 months. Hoping for another few weeks.
