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
