I like the raised beds. They are easier to work with. Especially from a water perspective.

Gotcha... I never planted anything in a raised bed . I probably will try to plant some watermelons in a raised bed away from my garden they choked out some of my sweet taters and took the garden over. Do you put soaker hoses in the raised beds?

3 way I had no idea you were a gardener. Looks good too. We have a small raised garden about 30 feet square made with metal bridge railing. Only problem we have is keeping it moist enough for things to grow. Seems to dry out awfully quick.

I water about twice a week when we're not getting any rain and I soak the poop out of it
