The Raspberry Bed is in
Soil - or our lack thereof.
Hubby built the box when he built the asparagus box.
I amended the asparagus box with compost, and so had a bit of extra soil to throw in this box.
I had some left over potting soil after re-potting the peppers and I found half a bag of garden soil in the shed... they went in the box.
Half a bag of manure and some compost went in the bed. It still wasn't deep enough. And then hubby, bless his soul, bought home three buckets of top soil from a job he was on that finally filled the box.
Hubby will add poles on either end to create supports for the vines.
Fresh raspberries! My mouth is watering already.
