We started our raised bed gardening four summer's ago and it was 8x16 feet. We were very pleased with it.
Our first raised bed gardenThe following summer we increased the garden to 16x24 feet and added four tractor tires to garden as well. This is what this year's looked like.
We always plant radishes and they are also one of our first crops of the season. Peas grow best when it is cooler, so here in Iowa peas are one of the first crops to harvest for us.
This year's peas were successful.
