    Raised Garden Bed - on legs!

    These beds look great. Nice job. Just a couple of tips:1) Because the soil in a raised bed like this will dry out faster than when planting in ambient dirt, it's best to use a good organic potting soil. The high Vermiculite/Perlite/Peat Moss content keeps the soil moist for a much longer time especially in hot weather.2) Don 't use Linseed oil as a sealant. It has Cobalt and Manganese in it (as drying agents). These are toxic heavy metals and a no-no for organic food gardening. I have used natural Tung oil which you can find here. planting from MinifarmBox
