I’ve just finished building my raised-bed garden utilizing recycled lumber and filling the beds with a mixture of organic compost, topsoil, and mushroom compost. With the irrigation now in, the next step will be planting.
The site is a recycled cat cage that had a connection through a window so the previous tenant’s cat could access the outdoors but was protected by local predators by a huge enclosed cage. It’s this cage that will keep the garden plants safe from deer, turkeys and above-ground herbivores.
