Raised Bed Vegetable Garden

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nature’s Care for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

We had such a  busy and productive weekend. On Sunday, after the Easter eggs were decorated, we decided to get busy and finish up our vegetable garden. This year we decided to do raised beds for our vegetable garden. I was hoping by using raised beds, our plants would have a better chance for survival and hopefully we’ll be able to have a few more vegetables than we did last year.

To do this project, we purchased 3 raised bed kits and attached them together, making 3 beds with high sides and 2 beds with shorter sides so that we have 5 little beds. In the beds that have shorter sides, I planted herbs and smaller plants and in the deeper beds I placed my tomato and squash plants. On the bottom of the beds, I placed a landscape fabric that will help to control weeds and grass, and then filled the beds with soil.

I want to keep this garden as organic as possible, so I used  Nature’s Care potting mix. They also have a new plant food perfect for our little garden. They both have natural formulas and are perfect for edible gardening.

They also have several organic all natural pesticides to product our crops from our little insect friends. These are my favorite, since we live in Florida and we have so many garden pests. I can’t wait to see the reults of these new products come harvest time. We’re hoping for lots of tomatoes, squash abd fresh herbs this summer!

      I killed ours last year, that’s why we’ve tried these raised beds. Hopefully nothing dies!

    I love this. We had a huge garden at out old house and I’m just itching to put one in here. It’ll have to be raised because we have limited light here. It’s an old property with tons of mature trees. Way too much shade. It’s too cold here yet to start. Hubs called tonight and was asking if we should get compost. We’re probably a month away before we don’t have to worry about frost. I’ll be back to peek in for ideas. xx

      We have a ton of shade in our spot too, I’m hopeful we’ll have enough sun. If not I might have to cut back a tree, lol!

    I’m so jealous of your garden! However if and when I ever get some outdoor space I want to do the raised bed garden. Best of luck growing!

    You have no idea how jealous I am of your garden! I grew up with a giant garden but now that I live in NY we have zero yard and all I want is a garden…haha. I keep trying to talk my husband into buying a house in the country so I can have a raised bed garden and chickens. Hopefully he gives in soon….haha 🙂
