Raised Salad Bed




With the weather staying wet and cloudy, I thought I would complete the build of a raised bed with shelf inside my Polly tunnel.

I had a spare dry wall pallet I could use, so It cost nothing and I should be able to use this very productively for a few years.

Step 1: The Frame

The frame was made a couple of weeks ago, it just needed slats and a spot of paint.

The ground was dug and flattened, then covered in wet cardboard that will rot down in a few weeks,

but should stop any grass or weeds growing.

Step 2: Upper Storeage

I now have a shelf for trays and planters, with wide slats to allow lots of light through.

The trays and planters are outside during the day to harden off the plants,

so the bed gets plenty of light.
