Great looking gardens. Did you mortar the blocks or are they just set into place? Does frost alter the shape at all?

I mortared the blocks 30 years ago and as of right now I’ll taking three top bricks out. Western sun eventually takes everything apart.

the beds look lovely. “Should have” ... I think that is the greatest thing about sites like GardenTenders.com >>> people share their stories so that the youngsters can start out a whole lot wiser than us!

When I hit the 60’s, I found I have a lot of “should have’s”.You are right about the kids, but you have to start them early.Thanks

I see lots of potential in those raised beds. Good thing you did such a nice job making them. They lasted long enough to come back around to you. Good luck with your garden in them this year.

Have you tried 1 sq ft non-shag carpet tiles with 1, 4, 9, & 16 holes to eliminate weeding? the tiles whwn wet are heavy enough to resist wind. My biggest problem in Kansas. Try searching French Intensive gardening for tips. THX

My family has something EXACTLY like that in our yard! Except ours is covered with RED brick slabs around the perimeter. Also, good idea! (putting square foot gardening in it!)

Great minds think alike.First year for the Square foot gardening.I will have to rotate crops this year as the garden has been attacked by most every bug there is.Have fun and eat well.
