How To Make a Raised Bed Garden
Reap your rewards
Pick veggies often. Beans, cucumbers and peppers will stop producing if the fruit is allowed to mature and set seeds. Lettuces can be snipped from the top to get a longer harvest. So keep up on the harvest and your garden will produce even more. Stagger planting times for longer harvests; for instance, plant a row of beans at two-week intervals.
When the bed is done for the season, top dress it with mulch or compost to amend soil for the next season.
