    Starting 2013 off on a better foot. It's been a bit expensive this year in the garden already, but it should help me be better organized and produce more.

    I have 8 4x4 raised beds. I plan on adding 4 more (they're all on the side of my house, fenced off from the dogs). I really think it's the best way to go!

    Looks great! I have 14 3X6 raised beds, 1, 3X18, and I'm building two more that will be 3X12 or 3X18. Much more efficient than a row garden I think, and so much less work once you get them set up. No tilling, and you can control the soil.

    I'm hoping it is the best way to go. I'm in it now!

    I like the part about no tiling for sure. Less work means more time for the other work that needs done.

    I've also found that you can really plant alot more in them than in traditional rows. More bang for your buck
