This year we are trying our hands out on raised bed gardens. We’ve had plenty of experience with the good, old-fashioned regular garden beds and we had a great crop last year. We’ve been interested in the raised bed’s for awhile but some friends showed us Len’s Raised Bed Gardens and we loved the idea. (Our friends’ tomato plants were so big, they looked like trees!)
So this year we went all in and are giving it a go. We made a 4×16 bed; built 2 cinder blocks high. I can’t believe how many things we were able to plant!

We’re still maintaining the regular garden over at my mum’s. In that garden we planted:
I’m anxious to see the differences (if any) between the two gardens.
Are you guys planting anything? If so, what? I’m always intrigued the different things that people like to grow personally.
