These are my boxes that are in a church community garden. The blue container has potatoes; the white bag has zuchinni seeds. Three boxes have trelleses, the fourth will have corn. These boxes have been planted about 2 weeks, except for the corn box.

Really nice! Did you buy the darker brown box pre-made?

That looks great, squaredeal -- do you get to leave the boxes in place year-round? There's a community garden around here I'd like to try but they till up the soil every fall and I don't think they'd let me have a year-round plot because I'm not in the city proper and priority for plots each year goes to the city residents. Anyway, what you did is exactly what I had in mind for if they would let me!

This is the first raised bed garden system for this property. I asked the pastor for permission. Normally, this ground would also be tilled, but because of the wet weather that had to be postponed. The pastor put me in a plot that wouldn't interfere with plowing, if it occurs, and in a visable spot for others to see. It didn't hurt that the pastor's mom square foot gardens in another state. I don't know if SFG will work, but so far it has won me as a convert. Easy to weed, easy to water, easy to keep neat. However, without a grant, I don't see others investing in the boxes or the Mel's Mix.

Community gardening has become "hot" in Indpls - and raised beds may become the norm. The extension service recommends raised beds in gardens "inside I-465". A lot of that ground has been contaminated with heavy metals from long defunct industrial firms and there is concern about vegetable contamination. (maybe a good argument for other cities like Atlanta). Creating your own soil helps alleviate these problems.

I live in a rural township ("outside I-465") that never had industrial development, so I'm not concerned that my soil is contaminated with heavy metals. I'm more concerned about Black Walnut tree waste! LOL

The dark brown box was a kit from Aldi's (grocery store).

Thanks for the reply. I bet they are gone. Aldi's stuff moves fast. I rarely go there, since it is a good hours drive from where I live and just not worth it.
